Instagram Stats

If you're still sitting on the fence regarding whether to join Instagram or not, here are a few stats that may peak your interest:

  • 700 million monthly active Instagram users
  • 400 million daily active Instagram users
  • 20% of all internet users are on Instagram
  • More than 40 Billion photos have been uploaded to Instagram so far.
  • When Instagram introduced videos, 5 million videos were uploaded in the first 24 hours.
  • Instagram videos get 2 times the engagement of photos that any other social media platform.
  • 75% of Instagram users take action (e.g. visit a website) after looking at an Instagram advertising post
  • Posts with at least one hashtag average 12.6 percent more engagement than those without
  • Instagram posts have 58 times more engagement per follower than Facebook and 120 times more engagement per follower than Twitter. (I have not been able to verify this statistic).

My phone seems to be too old to be able to connect with Instagram, halfway the sign in the process stops.
Tried to login via FB, same issue

Oh no, Loes. How frustrating. You can login via your pc as well. Adding pictures is a little trickier via pc but its do-able.

I have tried that, but I had a clear moment, I do have a tablet somewhere at the bottom of my drawer, I dusted it off and my daughter just placed the Instagram app on it and it works! But now I have to figure out how to get my website pictures into my gallery to be able to place more on Instagram. I have seen yours now:) Lovely, and I want to make those pictures on Canva too, to make them a bit more interesting.
So I have some work to do:)
First Canva, then uploading to the tablet and place them on Instagram. Pfewww.

update!
I managed to add one picture to Instagram, using canva and my tablet!

Woohooo! Well done Loes! I'll go check it out now - ooh, stunning pic! Left you a comment.
Gramblr is also a great photo uploader if you want to upload directly from Canva on your PC to Instagram. :)
