Welsh father figures top the InstaDad chart for most likes

The new study analysed publicly available Instagram posts from the last three months based on their geo-location tags, and crunched the numbers on the top UK regions, counties and cities where dads share fatherhood related content the most.

When it comes to the most popular InstaDads, whose content received the most likes, Welsh father figures top the chart, with Newport amassing the most InstaLikes for dad-related content, followed by London and Blyth, in Northumberland.

Wales ranked fifth in the top UK regions for InstaDads

At a regional level, Wales ranks fifth in the top UK regions for InstaDads based on total number of InstaLikes, and 10th for number of posts overall – based on volume of Instagram posts related to dad life, in an analysis of geo-tagged public data.




Overall, InstaDads in the South East and East of England are most active and receive the most likes to posts about dad life, whilst the North East and Northern Ireland are home to the least active Instagrammer dads, according to the regional data.

At county level, Milton Keynes, Stirling, Hartlepool, Monmouthshire, Caithness, Peterborough, South Gloucestershire, Wrexham, Thurrock and Falkirk all split the last position in the ranking, with the lowest amount of fatherhood related content shared.
