Snapchat Users Share 150 Million Photos Daily — More Than Instagram

social media photo sharing share of marketBusiness Insider has issued a report, How Teen Mobile Behavior Threatens To Upend The Tech Industry, that breaks out the market share of the various social photo sharing platforms.

As of April 2013, the number of photos shared daily on Snapchat averaged 150 million, up from 50 million in December 2012–a surge of 200% in just 4 months. This is far more than Instagram’s 40 million daily uploads. Not surprisingly, Facebook remains the leader in photo sharing, with 350 million photos uploaded daily by the social network’s 655 million daily active users.

If a photo is shared but then quickly deleted, does the service still have potential for brand marketers?
