Editor’s note: We confirmed an error in this infographic, in which “200% increase in potential organic audience since 2012” should read “100% increase”. Thanks to our reader for pointing out.
Where should brands put their resources on social? It looks like Facebook has plateaued, while Instagram is in a rapid growth phase.
Check out this infographic from selfstartr.com. It shows that while Facebook has seen a 63% decrease in organic marketing reach since 2012, Instagram has seen a 115% increase in the same period.
What does that look like? Organic reach on Facebook was about 4% in 2014, while Instagram reach was 28%.
Facebook users are less interested in advertising than Instgram users. Only 32% of Facebook users engage regularly with brands, while 68% of Instagram users do.
Instagram has 58 times more engagement per follower than Facebook.
Lastly, and this makes sense because if affects a brand’s bottom line: an engaged follower on Facebook is worth about $55, while an engaged fan on Instagram is worth $65. That’s a Hamilton in your pocket.
