It’s no secret that the popularity of social media platforms such as Instagram and Snapchat has soared in the last two years.
According to a new study of more than 70,000 consumers from Kantar TNS, some 34% of U.S. internet users are now on Snapchat, a surge from 19% of domestic internet users polled two years ago. Instagram has also seen a big surge in usage, with some 43% of U.S. internet users possessing an account, up from 29% in 2014.
That doesn’t mean advertisers have been successful in using these social media platforms as a successful way to connect their brands to consumers.
