Instagram has once again hit a new milestone. The widely-used image sharing service has reached 400 million users only nine months after it reaching its 300 million mark.

Instagram's community is clearly consistent in its development and evolution and now, the social media service has become even more global, with 75 percent of its users are reportedly located from outside the United States.

More than half of the last 100 million Instagram users are reportedly from Europe and Asia, and the majority of this population signed up from Japan and Indonesia.

It was also stated on the Instagram Blog page that a handful of today's biggest celebrities are among the 100 million users who just recently joined the service. Football superstar David Beckham is one who has just created his own Instagram page, much to the delight of his fans. Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos soon followed suit. Raffi and Nagita from Indonesia and T.O.P. from South Korea joined the popular app as well. Caitlyn Jenner was also among the new Instagram members.

There were also some globally relevant photos that were highlighted in the blog post. In addition to the wide celebration held for the Champions League, the world also saw the first social media image of Pluto's surface. The pictures of Turkey's white pools, as well as an amazing picture of a ghost town located in the Namibian Desert, are other noteworthy images.

However, it is worth noting that these beautiful photographs are only a few of the 80 million images that are uploaded on Instagram on a daily basis, especially now that the service has 400 million users. This is a very huge milestone, considering that such accomplishment was only a dream when the app first launched nearly five years ago.
