Some new Instagram numbers from the Pew Research Center shed light on just how many people are using the photo-sharing app – and what those people like to post the most. If you’re an avid Instagram user, these numbers may not surprise you.
But what you may not know is that if you’re posting images of food, pets, or locations, you’re part of the popular club. There are roughly 95 million photos and videos shared on Instagram every day.
The number of people using Instagram total around 500m per month – and users are widespread across the globe.
Pets Take Center Stage
As it turns out, Instagram users love to share images of pets too – in fact, 4m people using the app post a photo an animal every week (often using the hashtag #weeklyfluff). Millions more post images of family pets or pets that they are trying to find homes for.
Pets are, by far, the most popular photos that people place on Instagram, but people also enjoy showcasing travel shots and food pics.
