A little more about our new Instagram analytics
What does Union Metrics for Instagram do?
We wanted to build bigger, better Instagram analytics - something that allows us to take our deep-dive approach to social media analytics to one of our favorite platforms. Our Instagram analytics can show you how any account or hashtag - yours or a competitor’s - is performing at a glance. We can help you understand your posts and what makes them perform well, which hashtags get the biggest response, when an audience is most active. We can show you who your biggest fans and supporters are, who likes and comments on your posts, and so much more.
How does Union Metrics for Instagram work?
Just like TweetReach, Union Metrics for Instagram analytics provide real-time, ongoing monitoring for any account or hashtag on Instagram. When you set up a new Tracker, we’ll backfill it with some historical data to get you started, and then continuously add new and future posts in real time.
So who uses Instagram?
Instagram’s more than 200 million users might not be exactly who you’d expect. Roughly 10% (20.4 million) of Instagram’s dedicated user demographic (meaning they log in at least once a month) consists of 18-34 year olds. But another 15.3 million are 35 or older, and that number is projected to grow to 20 million by 2016. Instagram is, after all, the fastest growing social media site worldwide, rivals Twitter for smartphone audiences, and captures higher interaction rates than parent company Facebook.
Instagram also inspires the most dependence, according to one survey; the 18-25 year old demographic identify with it and see it as an extension of themselves. If this is the demographic you’re looking to target, then you absolutely need to be on Instagram.
