Reports that Instagram was seeing an alarming drop in users were wrongly filtered, the company clarified Thursday. Releasing its monthly active user data for the first time, Instagram says it saw a 10 percent month-to-month growth in the most recent period, and that more than 90 million people actively use the service. Last month, AppData had reported that the photo-sharing platform saw a 25 percent dip in active users following a controversial privacy policy change.
