Facebook/Instagram has identified that a percentage of the population are “reader” storytypes and prefer text. They tend not to be drawn to Instagram as it is an image-based medium. The rest of the population are ‘visual” story types. They prefer video and images to text articles. Provide articles and text to Readers audiences for example Academic researchers, law, financial services, engineers and Instagram campaigns to the majority audience which are visual.
Methodology & Notes
These figures are provided by Facebook They are not from a survey but based on the global database. Facebook is audited Media Ratings Council. I also noticed that I doubled up on some ages e.g. 25-35 and 35-45 double includes 35 year olds. I’ll fix that on the next update. If you wish to perform your own investigation I recommend you go to Business Manager Ads and change the datasets for MAU and uncheck everything except Instagram.
