As you can see, the majority of these top Instagram accounts are based in the United States with a profession of Musician.

Another surprising fact about the top 50 Instagram accounts is that only 2 are big brands, the rest are mostly individual users like actors or musicians and a few Football clubs.

So what makes these most followed Instagram accounts special? Well, every single account is either an already famous person like an actor or musician or they are a huge corporation worth billions. These top 50 Instagram accounts are also not "Instagram famous", they simply use this platform as a way to share their lives with their fans or to show their brand.

How can I get more followers on Instagram? You first need to choose as to what type of account you want, do you want to be an influencer or do you want a brand. Then you need content that is very unique and hard to replicate, for example, an artist could draw something amazing, but the average people who see this and whats to copy it would have a hard time. But if you did a photo of a fidget spinner, there is nothing unique about that post. Once you find your unique side, simply keep posting and engaging with your followers, and you never know, one day you might make my "Top 50 most Instagram follower" list.
