• Social media’s history began over 50 years ago with Facebook.com launched in 2004.

Connected Time Revisited

• Last year, internet usage declined by 5%, indicating a shift in usage patterns.

• Recent data shows a reversal of this trend.

TikTok vs Instagram Ad Reach Comparison

• Bytedance’s expanded dataset for TikTok allows for data coverage in more countries. The data is representative of previous data but covers a wider range of markets.

• Anomalies persist, particularly in ad reach across the Middle East. Instagram’s global ad reach is 5.5% lower than Bytedance’s figure of 1.65 billion at the start of 2024.

• Bytedance only reports ad audience data for users aged 18 and above. Compared to Meta’s data, TikTok’s reported ad audience may be up to 30% larger than Instagram’s.

• TikTok is blocked in India, resulting in no reported ad reach. Instagram’s largest market is India, with Instagram ads reaching a total audience of 363 million in the country.
