Urgent help lol[edit]

I don't know how to code/fix the graph, but it needs urgent help. The columns are all messed up. If someone could help that would be great! Thanks lol199.102.68.230 (talk) 18:21, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

Restored previous version[edit]

Feel more useful if you can navigate to other Social Media stats page. Let me know if someone disagrees or if it's not in the right format (talk) 09:55, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Redundant links[edit]

It seems redundant to use the same wikilinks for both the account names and the owners of the accounts. None of these accounts are likely to have articles separate from their owners, right? Would anyone object if I removed the @account wikilinks? Grayfell (talk) 23:03, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

I removed them. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 14:21, 2 September 2017 (UTC)


Is this really a relevant inclusion for this list? It seems like to me that it means birth country for humans but nothing is stated in the article to suggest this. Emir of Wikipedia (talk) 14:49, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

Priyanka Chopra (INDIA) is ahead of Adidas. Ritesh 911 (talk) 22:51, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

More content[edit]

I think this list should include up to 100 accounts at least, and in the list of most followed by country there should be other category if the most followed account is a brand, i think we must add a person account. MatsLP (talk) 03:08, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

I am expanding this list[edit]

Please, dont revert these changes. Im just trying to add more information. Also i need someone who knows how to put references because i don't know what mistake im making and i can't fix it MatsLP (talk) 23:01, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Chris Brown[edit]

Some clown changed the hyperlink to Chris Brown's wiki page and replaced it with David Beckham's. Please fix. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:32, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

Length of list[edit]

At the recent Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of most-followed Instagram accounts, there was a clear consensus that a list of 50 items is not notable and not supported by sources as required by WP:GNG, but a shorter list would be. As Subuey (talk · contribs) pointed out in this edit, multiple sources exist to support a list of 25. Therefore, that is how long the list should be. If the list is to be lengthened, we need multiple source coverage to support it, not just a single source. ~Anachronist (talk) 21:15, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

I don't understand why I had to point that out since you initiated the Afd. And there is more than one source for 50+. Subuey (talk) 00:37, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
There is? Then cite them and expand the article. ~Anachronist (talk) 00:45, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Ariana Grande profession edit request on 2 December 2018[edit]

Ariana Grande is an actress as well as singer, the wikipedia on her clearly states that she is a American singer, songwriter and actress.. What about Victorious and Scream Queens and all the other shows she's acted in. 2001:8003:888F:E800:BCD9:98F5:C091:B0FC (talk) 13:31, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

 Done, it now reads "Musician and actress" as her profession. --BlueFire10 Let's talkabout my edits? 14:20, 2 December 2018 (UTC)


change ((Drake)) to ((Drake (musician)|Drake))

The sentence containing it was just a trivial list of random names from the top 50—I removed it altogether. Prefall 16:06, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

Why the Facebook box?[edit]

I'm not sure of why the big box at the bottom detailing Facebook links is on this page... shouldn't it be on the Facebook page? Thank you, if anyone can clarify that, please. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:03, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

Instagram is related with Facebook as it is owned by Facebook. Therefore there are a few links in this infobox to other Facebook owned products such as Instagram. --BlueFire10 Let's talkabout my edits? 09:11, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

For data integrity purposes... why is Trump left off the list? He has 59M followers. EHarrispsn (talk) 04:39, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

You're looking at the wrong page. He has 59 million followers on Twitter and is listed as such at List of most-followed Twitter accounts. His Instagram has 12.4 million followers. Prefall 04:57, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

The @Instagram account: unfair advantage?[edit]

How come Instagram's own account has over 309 million followers? I have a few IG accounts, but I never saw a prompt to follow IG. Have others seen a prompt?

I suggest that the lead be changed to:

This list contains the top 50 accounts with the most followers on the photo and video-sharing social platform Instagram. As of August 2019, the most followed male is Cristiano Ronald, with over 178 million followers, while the most followed female is Ariana Grande, with over 161 million followers. The most followed brands are National Geographic, with over 116 million followers, and Instagram's own account, with over 309 million followers. Fifteen accounts have exceeded 100 million followers on the site.
