Instagram is one of the most recognized and used social networking platforms in the current day world. Instagram, just to mention, boasts of having over two hundred million users who are normally active throughout. As if that is not enough, daily, an estimated sixty million photos are uploaded to their Instagram accounts. Sixty million photos being uploaded daily! The intensity of this data may not strike you that hard, but just to put it all into perspective, that is roughly four hundred and twenty million photos being uploaded every week.
To crown it all, an estimated two billion likes are usually given to the Instagram photos daily. Is this not magnificent?
These numbers should not only astound you but should also get you thinking about why human beings interact with the content on Instagram this much. Something worth beholding about the app is that all content delivered on this platform is purely visual.
