What age group uses Instagram the most?
The below data is from
It seems that the older generation is the most heavily invested in Instagram, with 73% of over 50’s and 74% of under 50’s using the platform. However, there is variance in the levels of involvement among different age groups. Young adults are the most likely to use Instagram, by a wide margin. 84% of 18-24’s and 17-19’s are satisfied with the service. However, the highest level of engagement is seen on Instagram levels between the ages of 25-34. 76% of this age group are satisfied with the level of engagement of Instagram.

The US still accounts for a very significant portion of the world’s population, with 110 million people living there. But if we narrow the focus to international adults, there’s a clear divide along age group. There’s a 50/50 split for 18-24’s, which is fairly typical for this age group. But for 25-34’s, engagement drops off to 18%.
