Instagram is set to overtake Twitter as the top news source among young consumers. According to a report from Reuters Institute, young people are “behind the shift” towards Instagram as a top news source, with 75% of under-25-year-olds saying they use the platform for news. The same report found that 18-24-year-olds are more than twice as likely to prefer accessing news on social media than websites and apps. YPulse’s 2019 news consumption and trust report found that Instagram was already Gen Z’s top social network for obtaining news and information, followed by YouTube.
