Instagram's got new growth numbers.

Just think of all the brunch pics 700 million Instagram users can generate.

The photo-sharing app hit just that milestone of monthly active users, according to a blog post Wednesday. Since December, Instagram has racked up 100 million new users, a growth of 16.7 percent in a single quarter.

The company, founded in 2010 and bought by Facebook in 2012, attributes the growth to an easier signup process.

With about 400 million daily active users as of February, this means you won't be hurting for selfies or Unicorn Frappuccino pics in your feed any time soon.
