This study is about comparing the mobile user experience of Facebook and Instagram which are most often used among the recent SNSs by the people in their 30s and under. This study analyzed the user experience level after dividing the user experience factors through the Creating Pleasurable Interfaces model, and suggested the mean analysis as well as the result of Wilcoxon rank test which is a nonparametric statistics method. As a result of study, the Display information visually factor in functional factor and the configuration of the main page in convenient factor were a statistically significant difference in the mobile user experience of Facebook and Instagram. It is expected that this study may help seeking the user experience factors to be promoted preferentially in a competitive situation through the statistical comparative evaluation of the experience of two SNS users.
