The 50 Most Popular People On Instagram in 2015

When it come to being the King of the social media hill there is Instagram, and there is everyone else.

A recent study showed that Instagram was the fastest growing major social network among U.S. adults last year and the photo-sharing app, which is now used by 26% of the American population, and more than half (53%) of young adults aged 18- to 29, will continue to expand it’s dominance over the social space for the foreseeable future as networks like Twitter, Pinterest and Reddit have seen a decline and Facebook has flatlined. If you’ve used any of those networks less in the last year you are not alone. Right?

So let’s take a look at the people who are running the show in 2015. We’ve combed through Instagram statistics to pull together the following list of the 50 Most Popular People on Instagram in 2015.

This is not just a list about Instagram. Since Insta is the most culturally relevant social network, especially among coveted tastemakers of the younger demographic, it is more a glance at the leading influencers in pop culture, sports, and entertainment.
