TikTok beats Instagram Reels in engagement

For more insights and key statistics on the biggest trends in today’s most disruptive industries, subscribe to our Chart of the Day newsletter.

Key stat: TikTok has a higher engagement rate than Instagram Reels for creators with over 100,000 followers, according to September 2023 data from The Influencer Marketing Factory.

Beyond the chart:

  • Half of marketers still aren’t using TikTok for influencer marketing, according to our July 2023 forecast, which means they’re missing out on reaching engaged users.
  • TikTok may have been an unfamiliar platform a few years ago, but with over a third of US internet users on the platform now, according to our May 2023 forecast, it’s a wise place to invest.
  • Engagement on Instagram Reels is lower but not by a huge margin, especially for mega-influencers with more than 10 million followers. Influencer marketers across the board should be embracing social video.

Use this chart:

  • Evaluate influencer marketing strategy.
  • Compare Instagram Reels and TikTok investments.

Methodology: Data is from a September 2023 report by The Influencer Marketing Factory. For this analysis, the last 30 videos from 10,000 TikTok accounts and the last 10 Reels from 3,457 Instagram accounts in the US were analyzed during April 2023 and September 2023, respectively.
