Instagram is kind of a big deal. A recent surge in visual content is sweeping across every network from Twitter to Facebook. As the leader in image sharing apps, Instagram has become a household name in recent months with more than 40 million photos being uploaded daily to their platform.
Users are racking up a total of 1,000 comments and more than 8,000 likes on Instagram every second. Additionally, 28 percent of U.S. Internet users between the ages of 18 and 29 are using Instagram and that number continues to grow. As marketers, these numbers show that while instagram has yet to become a staple in the marketing toolkit, it’s definitely something to analyze and consider. Additional thought should be considered if you’re looking to connect with Generation Y using content marketing as they are using instagram more than ever before.
