'Joint Instagram accounts' are all the rage among couples -- here's what you need to know

First comes love, second comes joint Instagram accounts.

FIRST COMES LOVE, second comes joint Instagram accounts…

Folks, we don’t mean to alarm you, but there’s a disturbing trend amongst couples that is beginning to take over.

We are talking about joint Instagram accounts.

Pass the bucket.

Joint Instagram accounts typically involve both parties having a password to one shared account and giving up their own personal accounts.

It’s a bit icky.

But it’s also becoming more and more prevalent.

The reasons why couples opt for joint accounts vary.

Mashable reports that some couples describe it as a “bonding experience” while others merge accounts to “alleviate insecurity”.

We know what you’re thinking — what happens when they break up?



“We are no longer together so will not be uploading anymore I’m afraid.”


Of course, Instagram isn’t the only place it’s at — some couples have also been known to share Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Like Ronan and Storm Keating. (Or “Ro & Stormy”.)

Make it stop.
