Instagram’s success story continued last week when it announced it had reached the milestone of 500K active advertisers – a figure that has more than doubled in the last 6 months.
As today’s Chart of the Day shows, some context for this is given by the photo-sharing service’s ever-expanding audience. It’s among the trend-setting Millennials that Instagram continues to shine particularly brightly, with almost 6 in 10 now having an account (a marked and substantial increase on the 4 in 10 seen in 2014).
And with 1 in 3 of the Millennials who use Instagram saying that they have followed a brand on the service in the last month, it’s clear that this group are willing to have branded content on their feeds.
