Instagram Founder Kevin Systrom on Revolutionizing Photo Sharing

FastCompany paid a visit to the Instagram offices in San Francisco recently to chat with founder Kevin Systrom:

CEO Kevin Systrom and the Instagram team are exactly what you picture when thinking of scrappy startup entrepreneurs: four guys in a room. Literally, there are only four people at Instagram. And they’re working in a corner of a shared tech office in San Francisco’s South Park neighborhood.

Some interesting facts mentioned in the interview: the service is growing at a rate of 1.3-1.4 million users per month, they’re planning an Android version, they haven’t spent a dime on marketing, and the current app is only the “tip of the iceberg” in their plans to change how we take and share photos.

    Nice. Can’t wait for the android version. PicPlz is alright, but doesn’t have the numbers like Instagram.

    What would be revolutionary is if they stopped ignoring Android users.

    It’s a lil disturbing that 10-15 yr old instagram users can follow users that post semi-pornographic pictures, shouldn’t there be restrictions about that??
