A month after two of its two most important moments -- its jump to Android and its acquisition by Facebook -- Instagram has already reaped some of the rewards, seeing its number of unique visitors grow by 78%.
The dramatic gain in traffic placed the little photo filtering mobile app at the top of the web for growth in April, according to ComScore Inc., which released the statistics Thursday.
Instagram brought in nearly 14.6 million different individuals to its service in April, making the app the 106th-most visited property on the Internet.
By comparison, the app grew by just 19% in March with 8.2 million uniques, leaving it No. 204 on the most visited list.
