7 most popular teenager Instagram accounts

I did some research on the users of Instagram and there are approximately 200 million users that are sharing their photos with the World. I wanted to know which accounts these 200 million people follow and I came to the surprising result, that 41% of Instagram accounts are created by users under 25 years. That’s why I wanted to find out what the most popular teenage Instagram accounts are.

#1 Kendall Jenner

Is it because of her role on E’s famous TV show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ that she has so many followers? Or is it the fact that she also happens to be a supermodel? We don’t know but with 36.7m followers on Instagram, Kendall Jenner is easily first on our list.

Kendall made Instagram history when her picture received 2.6m likes, the highest amount of likes so far.

#2 Kylie Jenner

Coming in close to Kendall, her sister Kylie Jenner has 36.5m Instagram followers. Kylie also made her debut on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’.

Kylie often posts pictures with celebrities such as Tyga and Pia Mia, possibly where some followers stream from. She and Kendall have a fashion brand with a well-known store called ‘Pacsun’ which they advertise on Instagram.
