Malta smashes a massive Instagram milestone


Malta has passed a major social media milestone.

The hashtag #Malta has now been used more than four million times on Instagram.

Valletta’s amazing architecture, Mdina’s narrow streets, Gozo’s stunning scenery and Comino’s sparkling Blue Lagoon were almost made for the photo-sharing app.

#Valletta is the most hashtagged spot in the Maltese Islands, taking over four times the number of mentions than #Gozo in second place.

#Comino came in third.

Instagram’s popularity has been growing steadily since it first debuted back in 2010.

With more than 500 million active users, it’s currently the second most popular social media network in the world, behind Facebook.

If you want to explore some of the most beautiful spots around the Maltese Islands, look no further for inspiration than Instagram.
