Trade publisher iMedia scoured Instagram to identify which brands were capitalizing most effectively on the photosharing application famously purchased for $1 billion by Facebook (FB). To date, Instagram has 50 million users according to API and 1 billion images, so hats off to iMedia's dedication.
"From a brand perspective, visual storytelling is the natural evolution of existing consumer behaviors and helps to humanize brands," said iMediaconnection. Five of the "Superstars" who, according to iMedia have found innovative ways to incorporate Instagram into their social strategies, include American Airlines (AAMRQ), Red Bull, Tiffany & Co.
