So your parents have finally heard about Instagram now that it’s been purchased by Facebook for $1 billion, but we bet you knew about it waaay before then. Like, you’ve probably already been exposed to all sorts of Instagram users. Some are awesome, some just plain annoying. Now, it would be mean to call out any of our friends, but if Glee were real life and McKinley High existed somewhere else besides Ryan Murphy’s imagination, we’re pretty confident that the different types of Instagram users would be reflected there too.
Rachel Berry: The “I Love My Boyfriend Sooo Much” Instagram User
Ms. Berry would only post two things: self-indulgent snaps of herself and gratuitous shots of her main squeeze. Yeah girl, we know you got a BF and you’re in happy-happy dreamland, but some of us ain’t so lucky! Rub it in our faces, much?
Brittany S. Pierce: The Space Cadet Instagram User
You’d definitely see this space case getting up close and personal with stray cats in alleyways, going heavy on every filter possible to make her snaps look extra trippy. In fact, I’m pretty sure that’s how Brittany sees the world — through a perpetual Instagram filter that exists in her mind.
Sue Sylvester: The Braggart/Stalker Instagram User
We’re well aware that Coach Sue has no patience for hipster shenanigans, but she’d definitely use Instagram to keep tabs on her Cheerios (and, you know, probably Zac Efron). Maybe if she’s feeling generous, she’ll post some pics of her winning trophies looking extra epic. But she’d never make them look too retro! Her victories aren’t a thing of the past, you know.
Finn Hudson: The Confused Instagram User
“What’s Instagram? How do you use it? Isn’t a filter something you put in a fish tank?” These are all questions Finn would ask, for reals. (Rachel would have to help him navigate the app… and then request that he snap multiple photos of her so she can practice being famous and having paparazzi document her every move.)
Emma Pillsbury: The Girly and Adorable Instagram User
Emma would share photos of adorable things, like a really shiny pair of Mary Jane shoes or a cute-as-a-button baby in a carriage. Then she’d add the pinkest and prettiest Instagram effects, paired only with clean-cut borders of course.
Artie Abrams: The Retro-Obsessed Instagram User
As we saw manifest with his Christmas special obsession, this wannabe filmmaker likes everything old school. He’d try to make all his photos look like they’re from a long-ago era. Not just modern-retro, but actually old. Like, black-and-white old.
Kurt Hummel: The Over-Share Instagram User
You know that one friend who posts a new Instagram pic 65 times a day, every day until you know what they ate for breakfast, the grade they got on their math midterm, and the shoes they’re thinking about buying? That would be Kurt with an iPhone.
Do you use Instagram? If so, what kind of user are you? And whaddya think–did we get these Glee characters pegged?
