An index from NewsWhip of the 10 largest Instagram accounts by engagement in June 2015 finds that engagement rates on images and videos are notably higher than those observed on other social platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter.

No1 in the index, publisher 9Gag, demonstrates this Instagram engagement impressively, generating an enormous 171 million interactions from just 260 posts in June. National Geographic and Taylor Swift also appear in the index, creating huge levels of social engagement on Facebook's photo sharing app.

NewsWhip’s research also shines new light on the promotional power of Instagram for individuals, with six celebrities appearing in the Top 10 index, often generating more monthly interactions than global publishers do on Facebook.
