Instagram and Top Brands: Engagement Up as Audiences Grow

by Lenna Garibian  |  
February 25, 2013

Among the Interbrand Top 100 brands, nearly 6 in 10 (59%) now use Instagram, up 9% from the 54% that did so in November 2012, according to a new report by Simply Measured.

Among major social networking sites, only Pinterest is growing faster: The proportion of Interbrand companies using Pinterest reached 69% as of February 2013, up 10% from 63% three months earlier. 

That increase in Instagram adoption comes despite many changes on the social network over the last three months, including controversial privacy updates, Web profiles, and Web feeds, as well as dropping support for Twitter cards, Simply Measured points out.

Brand activity on Instagram is up, too. Among the Top 100 brands, 41% now post at least one photo per week, up from the 34% that did so three months earlier.
