Surely you’ve heard that Facebook purchased Instagram for $1 billion this week, but you might be wondering why anyone would pay so much for photos of your high school friend’s dog or of what your cousin ate for breakfast. If so, you’re probably using the app wrong. The key is to follow a large number of interesting people, i.e. celebrities. After all, who doesn’t find photos of Kim Kardashian’s lunch and Selena Gomez’ dog fascinating?
To get you started, Hollywood.com compiled a list of some of the best celebrity accounts on Instagram. The next time Snoop Dogg paints himself blue and posts a photo online, you won’t be the last to know.
