Ever feel like your Instagram feed is just the same stuff over and over again? Yup, us too. It’s probably because 99.9% of pics uploaded can be broken down into these nine categories. We bet you’re guilty of a few of these!
1. The food porn shot
Who can resist snapping a sneaky picture of their #vegan quinoa salad? Or that gorgeous fudge brownie that’s just been sat in front of you? If all your followers don’t get food envy, the meal may as well not have happened.
2. The cozy couple selfie
Soft lighting? Check. Radiant smiles? Check. Kissing is optional, but it helps.
3. Hot dog legs
Perfect for making everyone back home jealous.
4. The from-above slimming selfie
Such lovely cheekbones! Admit it, your lips automatically go into pouting mode as soon as you raise the camera above your head.
5. The surprised face selfie
Can be used to express surprise, joy or simply as a variation of the standard selfie.
6. Your feet from above
Yay for walking.
7. The plane window shot
This is the ONLY way to announce that you’re off on holidays. Bonus points if you also upload a picture of your passport and boarding pass next to your airport coffee.
8. The mirror selfie
A totally shameless opportunity to show off your outfit on those days you think “DAMN, I look good.”
9. Inspirational quotes
Usually to do with following your dreams or finding your one true love. And they MUST be set against a filtered sunset background or a starry night sky.
