"Since we launched in October 2010, it's been both rewarding and humbling to see people around the world embrace Instagram as a way of sharing small moments of life through gorgeous mobile photos," Josh told Mashable.

"Every day, we get the chance to discover what's happening around the world and in our friends' lives by scrolling through our Instagram feeds, and we're excited for the many beautiful photos we're bound to see as the community continues to grow."
