College Students and Instagram: The Definitive Guide

Instagram, the photo sharing social media app that took the world by storm after its launch in 2010, was most notably acquired by Facebook in 2012.

This past September, the app hit a record 400 million active monthly users. According to the Pew Research Center, 55% of Instagram’s users fall in the 18-29 age bracket. Thus, a whopping 220 million millennials use Instagram each month. That’s a heck of a lot of filtered photos to peruse.

Or is it? According to a poll posted by the Whatsgoodly social polling app, millennials actually prefer #nofilter. A surprising 50% of respondents reported that they don’t use Instagram filters, whereas 37% use an Instagram filter, and 13% turn to outside apps to edit their photos.
