Jennifer Aniston is a woman of many talents.
Number one on the list of her many talents being her ability to have everyone like her.
Ask yourself... who doesn't like Jennifer Aniston? I mean really dislike her, dislike her so much they wouldn't watch her movies or copy her hairstyles...
Still thinking? Of course, you are because no-one dislikes Jen. As I said, it's one of her talents.
And what greater way to demonstrate the universal likeability of Jennifer Aniston than the declarative proof of social media.
Jen joined the world of Instagram on October 15th and in doing so broke the internet.
I'm talking Kim K popping champagne off her backside style...
The surge of fans rushing onto their Insta accounts to follow the Friends star was so overwhelming the server crashed.
It's little surprise then that today it's been revealed Jen set a new Guinness World Record.
Here's what happened...
Hi, Jen.For anyone that grew up watching Friends as I did, the hours spent watch Jen and the gang flounder between the coffee house and Monica's apartment filled us with something more than a sense of familiarity. Those five characters really did feel like our friends.
But just like friends, we make in real life...
Except of course for Jen, who never left.Jen's the friend that never stopped returning our calls, Jen never went off on a three-year trip around South-East Asia to go "find herself", Jen stayed right here. I swear that woman can't have taken a month off from filming for the past two decades- not even for one of her honeymoons. Aside from Friends, Jen has starred in over fifty roles. Meaning that Jen has never been more than a movie trip or a Netflix click away.
Is joining Instagram a risky step?
My fear is that Jen An will post something on her new Instagram that will offend everyone, and then people will ‘cancel’ her.— Jack - J.S. Strange (@Jack - J.S. Strange)1571262213.0
Maybe Jen is just trying to fit in?I mean, who hasn't got Instagram nowadays? (well actually, I don't but I'm also not a public figure.) Anyone who's anyone has Insta in this day and age and despite being social media phobic, the assertion that Jen felt compelled to join the hype shouldn't be that surprising.
Courtney Cox is an avid Instagram user.
Matt Le Blanc uses Insta as a promotional tool.
Reese Witherspoon is the queen of Instagram.
Reese is extremely open on her Insta.
We're all wondering one thing...

New to the app, Jen's still working out what it's all about.Is it about sharing photos of your friends with the world? Is it about promoting your current projects? Or... is it a way to stalk your ex?
Settle down, Justin...
woah justin commented😦🤩 #jenniferaniston https://t.co/3G99FtT10o— soph💘 (@soph💘)1571153843.0
Surely it's a good thing that Jen is on good terms with her ex?That is to say, perhaps seeing what each other is up to constantly through the rose-tinted window of Instagram might not be the best thing that ever happened. I don't know what kind of Insta user Theroux is but it wouldn't surprise me if he posted a lot of late-night stories with come-to-bed eyes.
Justin posted a pic of Jen on her 50th bday.
I wonder if Brad Pitt will ever get Instagram.E! News actually asked Pitt is he would ever get Insta earlier this years. During the press tour for Tarrinto's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Brad made it clear he had no intention of ever joining the platform.
“Never gonna happen."
We're all feeling very connected to Jen right now.

Jen's second post seemed to address the storm.
