Who to Follow on Instagram For Dudes

Though I am still a little confused as to what the actual point of Instagram is, that's not to say it is not a fun and worthwhile app.

Whether you're standing in a queue, drinking a cup of tea or coffee, sitting on the bus, waiting for the train, waiting for a friend, watching a TV show that only partially captures your attention, talking to your mum on the phone, eating a sausage roll, lying on the beach or smoking a pipe; these are all good times to have a flick through Instagram.

Women mainly use Instagram to look at filtered pictures of cats, babies, and food, while on the other hand men are much more likely to utilise it as a tool to view filtered pictures of cats, food, and models. 

All 'jokes' aside though, this smart phone app is most enjoyable when you follow a mixture of people you know, attractive famous people and general interest accounts.

The following is a list of follows that men especially might be interested in adding, to complement your mates' pictures of street art and live bands.

TUL Note: After a six-year stint as a freelance journalist in Buenos Aires, Daniel is back in Brisbane to find that his knowledge of Argentinian football is of little practical value here. Luckily, his other areas of expertise, such as eating food, drinking wine, and writing about it, are applicable across most cultures.
