Especially in Southeast Asia, namely Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Indonesia all have Instagram penetration rates higher than 50 percent. It should nevertheless be noted that only the youth is responsible for the high penetration rates. In Singapore, for example, the proportion of 18- to 34-year-olds is almost 60 percent of all Instagram users.
