Follow Frank Gore on Instagram

Posted Jan 18, 2014

San Francisco's all-time rushing king now has an Instagram account and wants you to follow him.

San Francisco's all-time rushing leader is now on Instagram.

Frank Gore wants you to follow as soon as possible.

"Tell everybody to follow me," Gore told me in the locker room this week after I checked in with the nine-year veteran to confirm his account was legit.

Gore has never been on any social media platform, but he decided to join the picture-sharing service after he was pursuaded by friend Vernon Davis.

As of Saturday, Jan. 18, Gore has 49,017 followers with just 11 photos posted.

Some of those followers are his 49ers teammates.

Donte Whitner, however, was unaware of Gore's account.

"That's him for real?" asked the hard-hitting safety who has a locker next to Gore. "He didn't even tell me about it."

Michael Crabtree and NaVorro Bowman both said they liked seeing Gore's arrival on social media. And both star players promptly followed Gore when they heard of the @fg2132 account being created.

Patrick Willis, too, smiled when he found out about it.

"I'm about to follow him," Willis said.
