With over a billion monthly active users, Instagram is an extensively massive platform and immensely popular worldwide. With the rapid rise of influencers, people have even found ways to make a living there. Here are the top 20 Instagram accounts, ranging from musicians to football players to brands.
Right up on top of the list with a current following of 383 million followers is the social media platform’s official account itself. Their feed has one obvious purpose: show off the best and most interesting trends and people on Instagram. Along with this, they also promote their own IGTV content which they create themselves.
The legendary footballer is the most followed human being on Instagram. Forward for the club Juventus and the captain of the Portuguese national team, he is one of the best footballers the world has ever known. His feed, however, comes with little to no surprises. There are just a lot of family pictures, shots of him playing football, and a lot of photos of him experiencing the good things in life. Interestingly, Cristiano Ronaldo is also credited with being the first person to reach 200 million followers on Instagram.
The most followed woman and the most followed musician both go to global superstar Ariana Grande. She has over 214 million followers and is quite famous worldwide, so it is only natural that she has so many followers. Her feed posts consist of pictures and videos of her performances, photographs and videos with other celebrities, and general depictions of her pop star life.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
The only wrestler in the top 20 list, it isn’t a surprise that it is Dwayne Johnson. Former star of the WWE, he is now a world-famous actor and takes the 4th spot in the most followed list of people on Instagram. There aren’t a lot of surprises on his account either, just a lot of shots from filming, pictures of him working out at the gym, and posts about his family.
Despite just breaking into the top five, Kylie Kenner is probably the biggest celebrity Instagram ever created. She used to hold the top spot for the most-liked Instagram post but was beaten shortly after by the picture of an egg, the account being called ‘World Record Egg’. Her account focuses mainly on her work and personal life, with lots of photos with her partner and her baby.
A regular contender for the most-liked Instagram posts list, musician and actor Selena Gomez is 6th on the list of most followed Instagrammers. Her account is more or less like Ariana Grande’s, with the usual pop star fare of selfies, pictures of her at events, photos of her with friends, but also includes a few political posts around subjects such as women’s rights and freedom of speech.
