A battle for the ages.
Sometimes all we really want to do is compare and judge celebrity instagrams. For years, however, we have lacked an adequate platform to do so. That’s all changed now, thanks to Instabattle, a new Web app that allows you to pit your favorite Instagrammers against one another and judge their photos side by side, a la Tinder, in a best of 11 series.
The site is pretty bare bones, but features a random battle generator that comes up with some pretty great duels, like Snooki vs. JWoww for a Jersey Shore-themed clash, and CNN vs. Fox, in what is apparently a battle for the title of lowest common denominator.
The website also allows users to input their own preferred Instagram accounts for custom-made matchups. Some of our own were thematic like the above, while others tended toward the absurd, i.e. Joe Jonas vs. National Geographic. (National Geographic narrowly won.) The possibilities are endless here. The world of Instagram is your oyster.
