Great Instagram Accounts To Follow
If you don’t have an Instagram it is a great idea to get one. It is a very unique social media platform due to the fact that it is mainly for sharing picture and video content. There is not nearly the amount of spam, ads, or unwanted opinions of those that you follow on Instagram. Below are some great accounts and types of accounts to follow on Instagram.
Humans of New York is one of the most inspirational and heart wrenching follows on Instagram. The account posts about people or groups of people found walking the streets of New York City. The backstory of the people in the picture, often a few paragraphs long, is attached. Some of the stories will make you laugh, some will make you think, some will make you cry. Brandon Stanton runs the Humans of New York account. He says that the accounts original purpose was just to compile a ton of pictures of random New Yorkers, but he began interviewing people somewhere along the way and stuck to it. Everyone has a story and in a massive city like New York you are going to hear some vastly different ones, which is part of what makes following @humansofny so rewarding.
Dogs and Cats
One of the best parts of Instagram is without a doubt the pets. You will quickly find that everyone loves to post a picture of their dog, cat, or whatever other pet they might have. In recent years people have even begun making their pets their own profile. Some of these pets even have millions of followers! It is great way to see all kinds of pictures of animals and it is clear people put a lot of time into creating those pictures. For dog lovers, try following @manny_the_frenchie (French Bulldog), @mensweardog (Shiba Inu), and @marutaro (Shiba Inu). These accounts all frequently post pictures of their dogs in hilarious and adorable situations. For cat lovers try following @PrincessMonsterTruck, @nala_cat, and @realgrumpycat. You have probably seen Real Grumpy Cat before as the cat has taken on a life of it’s own. The hilarious cat has been featured all over TV, in movies, and even has it’s own merchandise line! You wouldn’t believe some of the other pets that have their own Instagram accounts like Capybaras, snakes, and chinchillas, just to name a few.
Memes have become a huge part of our society in recent years, whether we realize it or not. A meme is basically anything that catches fire on the internet and is shared and talked about a lot. There are a ton of accounts on Instagram that are posting almost strictly popular memes. Depending on your sense of humor, they can get pretty out of hand and inappropriate. @girlwithnojob is on the more inappropriate side of these accounts but posts a lot of…interesting content. @miserable_men is another humorous account that is much more family appropriate. This account just posts pictures of men who aren’t having the best time, usually while shopping. Finally, @BuzzFeed posts all kinds of viral content a few times a day. BuzzFeed is already known as one of the best websites for all that is happening on the internet and social media and their Instagram account does not disappoint. If you are looking for a laugh the accounts above, or any other meme account, is a great place to start.
Instagram has become a place for news, entertainment, and just about anything else you can think of. If you don’t have an Instagram you should definitely think about making one and if you do you should definitely follow some of the accounts above!
