The Infographic of the Day series visually expresses important stories from Asia and the world of technology.
We know that Thais love Instagram – and, for some reason, using the photo-sharing app to photograph Suvarnabhumi airport more than any other place – and now we have some stats to attach to its popularity. The Bangkok-based brand agency Zocialrank has made the pretty infographic you see below with the key stats: more than 150,000 local users on Instagram who have uploaded just over 11 million photos.
Thai celebrities are a key part of this success for Instagram. The most followed of which within the service is Chermarn Boonyasak (see her photo collection here) with 314,793 followers from around the world at present. Fellow actress Pachrapa Chaichua is a close second. Nine out of 10 of the most followed Thais on Instagram are (very attractive showbiz) females – I’m guessing that’s due to a mix of women fans and male voyeurs.
Check out the full list in the infographic, and also see which filters are preferred by the nation’s smartphone snappers.
