Our ZocialInc buddies in Bangkok always keep a close eye on Thailand’s social media scene. In their newest infographic report, the crew has found that the biggest social gainer in Thailand is Instagram, which has seen 163 percent growth in users in the country in the past 12 months.

Facebook, in contrast, has slowed down in the country, seeing only 28 percent growth. But in terms of sheer numbers, Facebook is still way ahead with 18 million Thai users, while Instagram is now up to 600,000 at the end of the first quarter of 2013. Across the nation as a whole, there are now 18 million social media users.

Let’s take a look at the highlights from the infographic (the full thing is embedded at bottom) and the newest statistics for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Foursquare, and Line.

Twittery Thais

There are now two million Thais on Twitter, who on average tweet 5.5 times each day. Like with Facebook, the country’s Twitterers are night owls, tending to post more between 10pm and midnight. 66.7 percent of Twitter posts in Thailand are made on mobiles.

Snapping up Instagram
