Social Media Stars: Top 10 Instagram Accounts Right Now

Every day, we spend more and more time on our phones and laptops scrolling through Facebook feeds and tapping through Insta stories. On average, we each spend 4 hours of our day on our phones, with a large percentage spent liking a friend’s beach pic or sharing a FreeHour meme on social media platforms. But where is all this time going to?

One of the biggest and best quantifiable numbers in social circles today is Instagram followers. Collectively, we have all agreed that the more Insta followers a person has, the greater the social following they have, essentially meaning the more famous they are. Without further ado, here are the top 10 most powerful and followed Insta accounts right now.

1. Instagram - 306M

I must admit, this is a little bullshit but hey, if Tom from MySpace counts then so does this.

2. Cristiano Ronaldo - 174M

3. Ariana Grande - 159M

4. Selena Gomez - 153M

5. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - 149M

6. Kim Kardashian - 143M

Every country has some form of government with a leader such as a prime minister, president, or royalty but these 10 accounts may have more of a global sway than any political figure. The truth is that they have more reach; they can get news out faster by sharing a single post than most news stations even if they were given a whole day.
