2.Cristiano Ronaldo (274 Million)
Cristiano Ronaldo is the second most followed person. The footballer shares photographs of himself and his family, as well as several football photos. He is a forward for Juventus and the captain of the Portuguese national team. He is one of the best footballers the world has ever had. There arent too many surprises in his feed.
3.Ariana Grande (229 Million)
Ariana Grande, the world’s most popular singer. She’s one of the world’s most prolific and influential singers, so it’s only normal that she be so popular on Instagram and she’s the most followed woman, to boot. Her Instagram feed is full of photos of her performing, meeting other celebrities, and living the pop high life in general.
4.The Rock (226 Million)
His Instagram is a mix of pictures of his insanely muscled body, food, and pictures of his kids. Dwayne ‘The Rock Johnson is our sole wrestler in the top 20. He takes the fourth slot as a former WWE star who is now a well-known actor around the world. There are a lot of shots from filming, videos of him in the gym, and updates about his family on his website, so there aren’t many surprises.
5.Kylie Jenner (223 Million)
Kylie Jenner is arguably the biggest star on Instagram, despite not making the top five. She used to be the most-liked Instagram entry, and she currently has several entries in the top 20. Her Instagram account focuses on her job and personal life, with several images of her baby and her boyfriend. With so many followers, it’s no surprise that she has nearly half of the most-liked Instagram photos ever.
6.Selena Gomez (219 Million)
Selena has 195 million Instagram followers, only missing out on a place in the top five most followed users. Selena shares candid selfies, promo for her makeup line Rare, and other projects she’s working on, including a Netflix documentary for which she provided the voiceover.
7.Kim Kardashian (212 Million)
The list’s second-to-last Kardashian or Jenner is also the most popular. Her story is strikingly similar to that of her family members. Many photographs from her modeling career and the events she attends, as well as personal items such as old family photos.
8.Lionel Messi (194 Million)
Lionel Messi naturally shares a lot of football images, which he rarely captions, as well as some cute family photos and photos of his amazing dog.
9.Beyonce (171 Million)
Then there’s Queen Bey herself. Her pregnancy announcement was once the most liked post on Instagram, in addition to ranking high on the list. Her account is fairly straightforward, with the majority of her posts containing photos from her appearances and professional work, with a few more personal posts sprinkled in.
10.Justin Bieber (169 Million)
Here is Justin Bieber. It’s no wonder that he made the list as one of the world’s biggest pop stars. His Instagram account is a little wackier than the regular pop star’s, with pictures of him hanging out with celebrities, cartoon versions of himself, and, of course, his April Fools pregnancy joke.
11.National Geographic (157 Million)
National Geographic, the nature journal, is another name on the list. Since Instagram is predominantly a visual medium, National Geographic has made full use of it by sharing images from their team of photographers. Users have been drawn to beautiful photos and videos from around the world, which is unsurprising.
12.Kendall Jenner (157 Million)
The next person on the list is Kendall Jenner. Her Instagram page is easy, with posts promoting her photoshoots and fashion work, as well as selfies and images from her personal life.
13.Taylor Swift (152 Million)
The next person on the list is Taylor Swift, who also happens to be the most famous person on Twitter. Performance on Twitter does not always equate to being pushed to the top of the Instagram list, as Katy Perry discovered. Swift, on the other hand, is much more involved on Instagram than she is on Twitter, with Story Highlights, photos from performances, and promotions of her new work and activities.
14.Neymar Jr (148 Million)
Neymar made it into the top ten. He currently plays for Paris Saint-Germain as a striker. His Instagram account is full of images of him playing football, hanging out with other celebrities, and generally living the high life, as one might expect from a sports celebrity.

Jennifer Lopez is up next. Jenni from the block, another actor and musician on the list, devotes a significant amount of time and effort to her Instagram account. JLo has a variety of Story Highlights from events she attends and hashtags she creates, in addition to the regular fare of behind-the-scenes snaps, music promotion, and videos.
16.Nike (141 Million)
Nike has recognized the importance of having a large social media presence. Their account isn't just a checkbox exercise; it's a masterclass on how to run a good account. It corresponds to their brand and evolves, with a strong mix of video and images. As seen in the embedded post above, they also connect to their IGTV material. With a compelling theme and quality post, it is one of the few brands to be the Top 20.
17.Khloe Kardashian (135 Million)
The first of the many Kardashian and Jenner on this list has arrived (not that that will be a surprise to anyone). She and her family have had a lot of success with the website which they used to share information about their lives, businesses, and activities.
18.Nicki Minaj (132 Million)
Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of musicians on this chart, and Nicki Minaj is the next one up. Her Instagram account is filled with photos from her tours and activities, her personal life, and even a few of her fans.
19.Miley Cyrus (127 Million)
Then there’s Miley Cyrus, the pop icon who rose to fame as a child star. Cyrus maintains a fairly standard Instagram account. There are a lot of selfies, as well as images from photoshoots and her appearances at events. As seen above, she also uses it to tease new content and announcements.
