The Active Agers Dominating Instagram Right Now

by Maddie Tannenbaum

It’s becoming less of a secret that more older consumers are embracing social media platforms as a way of connecting with friends and family, but also as a way of learning about new products and services. What’s less well known is that a number of Active Agers are also amassing a large, loyal following and a growing influence that rivals or surpasses many millennial stars of social media – and brands are taking notice. Below, we highlight a sampling of them who are currently racking up a considerable following and getting lucrative brand partnerships.
