  • Instagram has rapidly grown to become the second biggest Social Media channel in Suriname. With that growth, many young Surinamese artists and entrepreneurs have used their Instagram account to gain a big following. There are several Surinamese people under the age of 25 with over 45.000 followers on Instagram.

  • While Twitter’s stake in Suriname’s Social Media Land has dropped, interest still remains for those who actually understand the platform. Most interaction does come from Surinamese diaspora consuming news about and staying in touch with their home country.
