What Type of Instagram Character are You?

May 2018

But let’s be honest, the people around us fall into some pretty obvious stereotypes. Do you really think that only applies to everyone else? Are you REALLY that different to everyone else?

Who doesn’t love putting things in boxes? We sure do! So throw caution to the wind: read on to discover your hidden Instagram character!

Which one of these matches your Instagram character?

The Foodie

The Foodie generates a stream of brunch posts, frequent users of the hashtags #foodporn. You love to snap every meal you eat and every coffee you sip. You can usually be found brunching at boutique cafes and dining at restaurants.

The Average Joe

Joe is a fictional character who associates with ‘an ordinary person’. You use Instagram to post only when it is convenient for you, other times you’ll be found sitting creepily behind the curtains and watching the world go by.

The Lurker

We’ve all been there – 54 weeks deep into someone’s profile, about to zoom in when your finger accidentally double taps and the whole world comes crumbling down. An accidental like for an experienced lurker is embarrassing to say the least but that is part and parcel of using Instagram to track people’s lives. This stereotypical grammer loves to keep tabs on what their followers are up to.

Typical Lurkers: #yourex #yourcrazycousin #yourbiggestfan

From the pictures you post, to the filters you choose, Instagram can reveal a lot about you! Of course you may not fit perfectly into one of these stereotypes, there are plenty of others out there, but after clear calibration and research these results show where majority fit into the broader scheme of the gram.
