If you want to succeed at social media, it helps to be either a) hilarious or b) famous. The guys who make up The Lonely Island—Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer—are fortunate enough to be both. To capitalize on what we can only assume is their vast store of social savvy, WIRED asked the guys, who also wrote/directed/star in Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, for their hottest tips on making the Internet your own personal fiefdom. Need to know the best face to make in a Snapchat selfie? Having a hard time figuring out which filters to use? Just want to get some more followers? The guys who brought you Ras Trent and “I’m On a Boat” are here to help. Their advice may not be useable by everyone, but it’s still pretty funny. (For the record, we don’t recommend you actually follow their advice when it comes to bots.)
