Wildly popular photo-sharing service Instagram has now surpassed 100 million users, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said today at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco.

“It just crossed 100 million users,” Zuckerberg said on stage. “They’re killing it.”

Instagram officially became part of Facebook last week after the deal was approved by various regulators. The deal is now valued at around $750 million due to Facebook’s stock price dropping.

Instagram passed 80 million users in July, so its user growth has been stunning. ComScore reported a week ago that Instagram’s website is the 56th most popular site in the U.S., with 22.7 million monthly unique visitors.
