An Interview with Instagram Founders

Did you know that Instagram has hit the 3 million users mark within just 6 months? It’s amazing for them to reach this amount of users as the app is only available on iPhones and not any other platforms.

Here’s an interview Techcrunch did with the founders, Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger.

“By no means do we think of Instagram as just a photo-sharing service,” said Systrom. “It’s something that a lot of people lump us into, but we’d like to think of ourselves as a storytelling service. It’s the way you go out in the world and tell a story about your life, and it’s a new entertainment platform. You can open it up and see a story about what your friends are doing, but also [that] ABC World News is posting photos of someone in Japan reporting on the nuclear crisis. It’s really moving to see those things coming together through images.”

Do note that both co-founders insist that an Android app and website are both in the works.
