If in the meantime, after this article, someone intends to take an Instagram account, we can add that:
After its release in October, Instagram had one million registered users in December 2010.
As of October 2016, Instagram Stories hit 100 million active users, two months after launch. This figure increased to 150 million in January 2017 and 200 million in April.
Instagram users are equally divided with 50% iPhone owners and 50% Android owners. While Instagram has a gender neutral format, 68% of Instagram users are female while 32% are male. Geographical use of Instagram favors urban areas as 17% of US adults living in urban areas use Instagram while only 11% of adults in suburban and rural areas do.
For those wishing to obtain a good success for their publications we will limit ourselves to giving only two tips, but the fundamental ones, deriving from the latest research in progress on multimedia content.
Based on these, we tend to point out that publications that show people's faces receive more likes and comments and that the use of filters that increase heat, exposure and contrast also increase engagement.
Users are also more likely to interact with images that depict fewer individuals than groups, preferring content that has not been watermarked, as they see it as less original and trustworthy than user-generated content.
