13 Types Of People You'll Find On Instagram

Wednesday, September 10, 2014



1. The hashtagger.

Did this person post a photo or just hashtags? It's hard to tell because she's got 86 lines of hashtags. #blogger #instablogger #dogs #coffee #feet #ipad #keys #remotecontrol #paws #package #tray #candle #coasters #frame #book #tv #plant #blanket #basket
And now you know what's in my living room. God love hashtaggers, they put a lot of work into it.

2. The car selfie side-mouth smile.

This girl misses Myspace. She also likes to take photos of herself while stopped at a stop light with a sly little side smile that says, "look at how cute I am but I'm pretending to be goofy, but mostly I'm just cute."

3. The humble bragger.

This person isn't taking a photo of their White Range Rover, they're taking a photo of how much gas it takes to fill their Rover, duh! "Ugh, gas is so expensive right now! Everyone look at how much it costs to fill this $90,000 car of mine. #lifeishard #wah!"

4. Don't look at my boobs but I'm showing my boobs girl.

It usually goes something like this, "I'm loving my cute fish braid today!" But all you can see is the end of her tiny little braid resting on her large exposed chest. Don't hide your love for your tots, girl! Embrace that passion and just say "I'm loving my boobies today!" That's what Instagram is for!

5. The Ground Hog Day person.

Is it ground hog day, or did they just post that same selfie in the bathroom yesterday? And the day before? And the day before? And the day before? And the day before? And the day before? i.e. teens on Instagram.

6. The "This Sure Beats The Office" person.

Literally anywhere they are (but the office) beats the office. They can often be found skipping work to drink at a bar, or on a beach, or at an airport, or at a ballpark, wherever they are, they just want to make sure you know they're not at the office.

7. The Blurry Photo Taker Person.

Remember how bad your first Insta photo was? That's kinda how all of theirs are. Bless their heart but they just can't seem to get the hang of taking a good pic so they continue to post really bad ones.

8. The Inspirational Quote Person.

Perhaps they're going through something in life? Or perhaps they just want to be a motivational Instagram speaker. Regardless, their feed is full of quotes they found on Pinterest about "The Best Is Yet To Come!" and "In order to see the rainbow one must first survive the storm!" I'm guilty of loving these because I LOVE QUOTES.

9. The Mom Who's Toddler Always Takes Photos Of The Floor.

These are my favorite. I love when I see a dark floor photo on my feed that I know was taken by a two year old. Or by #7.

10. The Food Preppers.

They prep the shit out of their food every Sunday and want to make sure everyone sees how organized and healthy they are. And how many tubberwares they own.

11. The Gym Rats.

No biggy, bro. They're just at the gym again and want to make sure everyone knows how good they look in their tight tanks. Guns? Check. Lats? Check. Locker room selfie with the caption "let's do this!" checkkkkkkkk.

12. The Artsy One.

"Check out the shadow between these two dumpsters and the way it dances like it's completely free and no one is watching. The way the light bounces is like a metaphor for life and is symbolic for what we fight for every day, you know?" Yea, totally.

13. Crazy dog people.

It's like get a life, stop living through your dog... See @taylorgracewolfe for more details....


And just for the record, I'm a little bit of all of these. Except probably the boobs girl. I wish I was, but no. Who do you love on Instagram?

  1. So I recently went on Prinstagram to print some IG photos for my office and quickly realized what category I am fall under...cause most of the pictures I had printed are of my dog. Ha! This list is pretty accurate of what's out there ;)

  2. Ha! Number 12 is my favorite. Probably because I wish it was me...

  3. Hehe yes, so true. I'm definitely guilty of posting entirely too many dog, nature and animal pictures! #crazydogmom is a hashtag I use way too often...

    ReplyDelete
  4. Baby bump pic takers! That's me right now. Can't get enough.

    ReplyDelete
  5. My dog. The food I'm eating. And funny memes. That's me.

    ReplyDelete
  6. YES this is so accurate. haha the ground hog one. why are they always taking the same pic?

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love living through my dog. He has a great life.

    ReplyDelete
  8. This is spot on! The only other one I can think of are the people who somehow have all of their pictures in pastel or light colors, like all 300 of them

    ReplyDelete
  9. Mine is mostly food and my dogs. Oh and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.

    ReplyDelete
  10. So not on Instagram, but Facebook - #5!!! If your entire feed is new bathroom selfie profile pics, I can't be friends with you. No your face is really not that different than it was yesterday.

    I have to try really hard not to be a crazy dog person.

    ReplyDelete
  11. These are great, and SO true. I think I would fall in the category of "The mom that posts blurry pics of her kids because they won't stay still" or "look, I actually cooked today"

    ReplyDelete
  12. God this is all so true. Bud I'd rather see your dog than your boobs. #justsayin

    ReplyDelete
  13. the hashtagger though! when they #hashtag #every #single #word. they're like the 2014 version of the girl who TyPeS lYkE DiS.

  14. I should be embarrassed by how much of my insta roll is taken up with Floyd pictures but I just won't.

    ReplyDelete
  15. hahaha! Totally #13 too. and the boobs girl is the one I hate because I could never be her.

    ReplyDelete
  16. My favorite is this girl I know that combines art thievery and instagram. She posts mostly stolen photos and claims that they're her "photoshoots." Usually you can't see the person's face so she thinks that people won't be able to tell it's not actually her. I probably sound really mean but it's one of my favorite accounts to look through, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  17. This is hilariously true. love the "cute car selfies" hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  18. If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    If a Starbucks is ordered and not posted to IG, did it ever exist?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am #14 - the crazy cat person ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. You forgot the person that decides they need to post 4,000 photos in a row from the same event. I believe we call that a Facebook album...or just simply make a collage!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Festival goers! (totally guilty right now #burningman #iwanttogohome) days, weeks and even months after tomorrowland, bonaroo, burning man, etc you get bombarded with performers, interesting people, and selfies from the whole event.

    ReplyDelete
  22. hehe...I love this!

    #13 and #11- please also see @therightfits for more information.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Food and waaaaay too many pictures of the dog = me. This list was spot on!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hahaha last one is totally me! *sigh*

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sooooooooo true! I follow all of these people. And try not to be any of them, even though I'm probably a little bit of all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Lol some of these are sooo true. I know a boob girl and it is pretty ridiculous what she posts sometimes. I truly enjoy all of your dog pics though! Keep them up!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ugh Taylor, I fear I am becoming the hashtagger, but I also fall into the crazy dog lady category so it balances out.

    ReplyDelete
  28. So true, and so entertaining as always. A sorority sister of mine put an ad for a "fall boyfriend" on craigs list and is getting some attention for it. It is hilariously accurate and made me think of something you would say (so smart and witty).

    ReplyDelete
  29. Haha! Too true :) Fun read!

  30. hA! hilarious! I totally agree with some of the above comments. Like the "posts mostly in pastel and light colors" Seriously?! How do they make everything look so beautiful and coordinated? Who has time for that! And the posts a gazillion pictures of the same event in a row! Also, there's the "posts the same pictures of their kids over and over" girl. Like they're at the same park, with the same background, but they post every single face their kid makes while at said park it with same background. I get it, their kid is cute! I'm sure I'm guilty of most of these in some picture or another. Gotta love Instagram!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Okay, so I was holding my breath to see which one I was, but I think none? I DO take some annoying feet in leaves in the Fall, pumpkin candles and coffee, and way too many outfit selfless form above though. Oops!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I wonder which one I am or right I don't think I have Instagram so none of them.............lol

    ReplyDelete
  33. While reading this I thought "Wow this is so right!", I kept going and thought geez I can't even been categorized I'm special- then I read 13 #obsessedwithdapuppies #sorrynotsorry

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm a hastagger *covers face*
    This is perfect !

    ReplyDelete
  35. So what about those totally embarrassing people who create Instagram accounts for their dogs because they're so obsessed?!

    Okay, that's me. I did that. At first, I was like, Oh now I'll just post pictures to THAT account and not my own account, so I won't come off like such a crazy dog lady. But it's like Inception. I just went a level deeper into the dog craziness, and I'm in denial.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Haha, I'm the crazy mom who has so many baby and toddler photos on my IG account - it's definitely irritating a few people! x

    ReplyDelete
  37. For the record, the best way to start my morning involves laughing over your blog, Tay. I mix up my posts by day strategically, so I'm a weird category already. I'll look at my own profile and see what's been lacking...maybe an inspirational quote, maybe a picture of my cat or boyfriend...and I'll make t happen accordingly. Shameful? Absolutely not. Just really crafty instagraming.

  38. Oh my gosh, I can't stand the inspirational quote instagrammers! It is a PHOTO app, not a post a typography quote you found on the internet app... or at least that is my opinion. I am guilty of 1,2,6,10 and 13 though, so maybe I have no room to talk!

    ReplyDelete
  39. #1 and #7...oh my. #how #many #hashtags #are #too #many #?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hahahahahhaha I had so much fun reading this! You rock! Hahahhaha

    P.S. The hashtaggers, booby girls, quote girls and the gym rats are my "favourite"

  42. Hahaha YES I'm definitely a food prepper... I work SO hard and my food usually turns cold before I'm done photographing it. This is great.
