Like Twitter and Facebook before it, Instagram is a massive, rapidly expanding beast of a social network. Instagram combines two things that people these days really seem to value: a captive audience to view their excessive collection of selfies and not having to read.
Requiring no reading or writing, it's definitely the laziest social network in that the ability to see is pretty much all that's required to utilize it. That doesn't paint a pretty picture for the future of humanity, but it does allow us to follow hundreds of people with the bare minimum of investment.
The only major issue with Instagram is, after it's imported every existing contact on your computer, not knowing who else to follow. There aren't really any comprehensive lists out there, so a fair amount of "legwork" (which doesn't involve the actual moving of legs) is required to keep a steady stream of interesting photos in your feed.
That is, obviously, where I come in. I follow hundreds of athletes and various folks from the wide world of sports on Instagram, giving me a pretty good grasp on who's worth a follow. Women in sports are particularly active on Instagram, because they have the good sense to know that photos are far less likely to spark controversy than running your mouth on Twitter.
Here are 30 women in sports you absolutely, positively should be following on Instagram.
