Anyone who uses both Twitter and Instagram regularly will no doubt be surprised at this new data that has been compiled by Domo. It shows that the number of photos and videos posted to Instagram is almost equal to how much goes on over on Twitter.

Considering the effort it takes to capture (filter!) and post to Instagram versus bashing out a sentence on Twitter, this shows just how fast Instagram is growing and how it has become one of the power players on the social networking circuit.

Key stats from the research (shared every minute):

  • 204 million emails are sent
  • 2.4 million pieces of content are shared on Facebook
  • 4 million searches are carried out on Google
  • 0.34 million WhatsApp messages are sent
  • 0.277 million tweets are sent
  • 0.216 pics / videos are shared on Instagram
  • 3,472 pins go up on Pinterest
