Making it Easy
They state that they have made it easier for users to join, leaning towards this as the reason they grew their last million users so fast. I am sure there are other factors involved as well, like Instagram Stories, Live Video, adding the shopping feature etc..
Why We Joined Instagram

2) There is a lot of engagement going on in Instagram
3) There are more opportunities to connect with our audience on Instagram
