    People like to feel important, when someone follows there account they get the scene that they are important. I guess you could compare it to, the felling of a famous person or something like that.

    - facebook can connect with friends
    - twitter can connect with new and interesting people (facebook pretty much lost that niche)
    - instagram lets you become a photoshop guru and share your creations with the world

    The interesting part of instagram for me is that only 15% provide all of the content that is shared.
