    If you look at the statistics:

    http://socialblade.com/instagram/compare/fuckjerry/thefatjewish/daddyissues_

    @thefatjewish and @fuckjerry have much faster grow than other accounts (such as @daddyissues_) in the comedy. You can't say its because comedy is saturated because then the growth curve for all 3 accounts would be the same.

    Do you think its just simple higher quality content?

    Are you sure they aren't simply buying followers?

    I doubt it. Looks all organic to me and the engagement is about right.

    People are a fan of fans.

    If one pre-pubescent tween enjoys the tweets - they're going to tell all of their little friends about it.

    People are scared of being "out of the loop", so they just like whatever is currently in trend; it works the exact same way with music.

    The music that some artists make isn't necessarily BETTER than anyone else, they just have the right amount of buzz/marketing to succeed.

    But the grow rate is way different even back when fuckjerry and thefatjewish had 500K follows.

    My guess would be S4S as well. And thanks for sharing these accounts. They have some pretty nice memes to steal, lol. I've been looking for memes to sprinkle in with my normal posts to get better engagement.

    True, lol...but I've been looking for a "go to" account instead of just going from account to account looking for some. I don't post memes often on my main IG account, only when things get a little dry and I have nothing else to post about.

    I don't know about fuckjerry, but @thefatjewish has gone mainstream!
    He's invited to events, is on covers of magazines and even has his own brand of Rose.
    This has certainly played a role in his growth.

    Because they aren't generic comedy accounts, they are a brand, they have a face to the profile.

    That's an excellent point. But were they brands before or after the IG fame? It looks like they used IG to create their brand and now are verified accounts as a result of that. Looks like they hopped on the IG train early and utilized every trick in the book. They probably did S4S at some point and then the snowball effect took over.

    thefatjewish guy has a book coming out where he talks about how he became IG famous and used social media to create his brand. Sounds pretty interesting. I wish I had hopped on the IG train when the app first dropped. I still remember wanting to be on IG but had an Android and had to wait til app came there to get started on my business IG account. That's my only regret about not having Apple, lol...because I really wanted to work IG early but was like oh well, it's not on Android and didn't really push the issue.
