25 years have passed since the debut of SixDegrees.com, the first well-known online social media platform. Social media is constantly evolving, with platforms changing more quickly than ever before. Every platform has a different user base and fulfills a different role in the social media space, this article will break down some of the key platforms and who uses them.
Who uses Instagram?
Instagram has always been a hub for influencers, artists, brands, and everyone in between. It has now surpassed other social networking sites in popularity, especially among teenagers and young adults. While usage of the app remains consistent across genders, it eventually declines with age. Instagram must be included in your brand plan if your target market is under 40.
What kind of content should you post on Instagram?
Consistency is key on Instagram – beautiful photography, astute trend usage, and low production, ‘authentic’ videos that speak directly to your audience can all attract new followers. To keep people there and keep the algorithm pleased, use a consistent theme and post regular material – being careful not to overdo it.
Why should your business use Instagram?
If your target demographic is under 40 and your brand is heavily image focused, you should give Instagram top priority in your content marketing strategy.
Who uses Facebook?
Around 70% of British adults routinely use Facebook, with 51% visiting the site several times a day. All genders of Facebook users are equally represented, and the majority become more active as they become older, especially over aged 40.

For Facebook groups, interactive material and group interactions are key; think about using live broadcasts and polls to pique interest in your brand.

If you’re particularly adept at keeping up with trending subjects, a well-timed or particularly funny tweet can work wonders.
