Data Source: quintly avg. Facebook and Instagram page performance Q1 2015
This study analyzes the average Instagram account in the first quarter of 2015 (1st January - 31st
March 2015). To draw learnings from the stats being shown in the following pages, some Instagram
statistics are compared to Facebook, a network which is far more familiar to numerous marketers.
The analysis is based on over 5000 profiles, to share reliable data with the readership. By clustering
the profiles in the following six individually sized groups, every user is able to benchmark the own
profiles against the average:
1. 1 - 1k Fans 4. 100k - 1m Fans
2. 1k - 10k Fans 5. 1m - 10m Fans
3. 10k - 100k Fans 6. 10m Fans +
The purpose of sharing these insights is to educate the market and give marketers the possibility to
enhance their understanding and be able to back up the decision making process in the social
sphere.

3. Lunden, I. (2014 ). Tumblr Overtakes Instagram As Fastest-Growing Social Platform,
Snapchat Is The Fastest-Growing App. Available: http://quint.ly/1EroRnt. Last accessed 21st April 2015.
These stats show how Instagram was able to utilize the mobile trend since it was founded in 2010
and the growth of the social network continues. Instagram was able to increase its users by 36% in
2014 and is still the third fastest growing network (overtaken by Tumblr and Pinterest). Even more
attractive for marketers and brands active on the network is the growth rate of 64% of monthly
active users in 2014 (second highest growth rate)3
. As the number of global smartphone users will
continue to grow and sim cards become affordable for more people around the world, Instagram
will further benefit from the “mobile-first” approach.
Taking monetization to the next level, Instagram has now introduced sponsored posts. According to
the company's press releases, these posts should not appear in an advertising manner, preventing
the alienation of users through obtrusive ads. At the moment, Instagram is testing its new approach
on sponsored posts in Europe, by partnering with the following three pre-selected companies:
Porsche, Samsung and Zalando.
General Stats Discussed
Data Source: quintly avg. Facebook and Instagram page performance Q1 2015
Number of Posts:
The frequency how often Facebook Fan page admins and owners of Instagram profiles post on their
accounts is a controversial topic. From these stats marketers try to get information on the “ideal”
frequency, getting the most interaction per post. First, it is interesting to see on which channel,
Facebook or Instagram, admins tend to publish more posts. During the analyzed time period (in Q1
2015) we were able to identify the following numbers:
● Facebook ≈ 1.5 posts / day
● Instagram ≈ 1 post / day
With this study, we have found out that in higher clustered groups (more than 100k fans) numbers
are higher than on smaller pages. This fact might allow us to say, that “more successful” accounts
tend to post with a higher frequency.
The number of posts did not vary significantly in the analyzed time, from January to March 2015.

  • 5. Data Source: quintly avg. Facebook and Instagram page performance Q1 2015 3. Lunden, I. (2014 ). Tumblr Overtakes Instagram As Fastest-Growing Social Platform, Snapchat Is The Fastest-Growing App. Available: http://quint.ly/1EroRnt. Last accessed 21st April 2015. These stats show how Instagram was able to utilize the mobile trend since it was founded in 2010 and the growth of the social network continues. Instagram was able to increase its users by 36% in 2014 and is still the third fastest growing network (overtaken by Tumblr and Pinterest). Even more attractive for marketers and brands active on the network is the growth rate of 64% of monthly active users in 2014 (second highest growth rate)3 . As the number of global smartphone users will continue to grow and sim cards become affordable for more people around the world, Instagram will further benefit from the “mobile-first” approach. Taking monetization to the next level, Instagram has now introduced sponsored posts. According to the company's press releases, these posts should not appear in an advertising manner, preventing the alienation of users through obtrusive ads. At the moment, Instagram is testing its new approach on sponsored posts in Europe, by partnering with the following three pre-selected companies: Porsche, Samsung and Zalando. General Stats Discussed
  • 6. Data Source: quintly avg. Facebook and Instagram page performance Q1 2015 Number of Posts: The frequency how often Facebook Fan page admins and owners of Instagram profiles post on their accounts is a controversial topic. From these stats marketers try to get information on the “ideal” frequency, getting the most interaction per post. First, it is interesting to see on which channel, Facebook or Instagram, admins tend to publish more posts. During the analyzed time period (in Q1 2015) we were able to identify the following numbers: ● Facebook ≈ 1.5 posts / day ● Instagram ≈ 1 post / day With this study, we have found out that in higher clustered groups (more than 100k fans) numbers are higher than on smaller pages. This fact might allow us to say, that “more successful” accounts tend to post with a higher frequency. The number of posts did not vary significantly in the analyzed time, from January to March 2015.

  • 8. Data Source: quintly avg. Facebook and Instagram page performance Q1 2015 Interaction Rate: To calculate the interaction rate we used the following formula: Note: What is considered to be an interaction, depends on the individual social media network. For example, Facebook’s interactions are measured by the amount of Likes, Comments and Shares. As users don’t have the ability to share on Instagram, the formula is slightly different just taking Likes and Comments into consideration. Therefore, for an accurate interpretation of this metric, it is important to keep this information in mind. On Instagram, the amount of followers tend to be lower than on Facebook, indicating that the calculated rate is higher consequently. Nevertheless, the interaction rate on Instagram remains higher than on Facebook: ● Instagram Average ≈ 4.80 ● Facebook Average ≈ 0.72 . Metrics Instagram compared to Facebook
  • 9. Data Source: quintly avg. Facebook and Instagram page performance Q1 2015 Image / Video Distribution: As shown in the chart, videos do not seem to play a crucial role in the average user instagram strategy. As we are talking about the average, for some profiles it makes sense to cut 15 seconds videos and try to utilize the power of moving images. For example, the New York Times travel channel (@nytimestravel) did profit from the possibility of uploading videos resulting in higher interaction rates. Looking at the average, both image and video posts get a very similar amount of likes and comments. Metrics Instagram specific 93,78%
