Instagram tops Twitter for the first time

All Things Digital reports Instagram was accessed by 7.3 million users in August, compared to Twitter's 6.9 million. What's more, Instagram's users were also more engaged with the average user spending 87 more minutes on the site than those on Twitter.

Now, Twitter is still winning the unique visitor battle, 29 million to 22 million. But it's a huge milestone for the 2-year-old Instagram which has to date shared more than 5 billion photos.

Which brings us to tonight's number: 6 BILLION.

That's how many photos are uploaded to Facebook every single month.
