Tuesday 30 May 2017 | 14:20 CET | News
Facebook-owned Instagram has surged to over 12 million users in Spain, up 66 percent on the year-earlier period, according to data cited by El Pais. The social network's Spanish account, @InstagramEs, has grown to 2.3 million followers since its launch two years ago and Spain generates 150 percent more stories than the global average. Instagram last year overtook Twitter to become the country's second favourite social network, used by 24.4 percent of online Spaniards, albeit far behind the 64.8 percent who habitually use Facebook.
