I follow a number of photographers on Facebook. But they are not well known outside of FB, so not likely what you're asking for.

There are a number of notable figures from the last 40 years-ish, and they are easily googled. Many are dead now, so social media is not going to happen, and frankly, if you want to find the good ones, start out elsewhere. Once you locate one, you can see if they use social media.

The problem with social media is that a lot of good work gets ignored. What value are likes? Answer: zero value.

So do the hard work of looking around, or find a meetup and discuss with other photographers and get personal recommendations based on what you like.

You've provided no parameters here, which makes any suggestion worthless.

Your second question is unclear. Video for what?

It would help if you identified your area of interest. Do you prefer landscape, portrait, wedding, street photography or one of the many other genres available. I have about 60 different ones I follow. Give us a hint and we will help you out.

Look up famous photographers like Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, etc. For street photography look up Gary Winogrand, Eliot Erwitt, etc. Look for videos about those photographers. Likes on social media are mostly meaningless, people seem to like everything they see.

I don't understand the fixation with "Likes"?  My posts hardly ever get likes, that doesn't keep me off Facebook.  The FB pages below are hardly "Must follow", just what I follow -

Rachael Talibart does mainly seascapes, and it also excellent for black and white.

Nigel Danson's youtube channel is very good for discussing the more artistic elements of landscape photography rather than the technical details.

Tony and Chelsea Northrup are very good for very technical stuff, but every week they also do a live show where they review pictures that people have sent in, which is quite useful for getting ideas about what makes a good photo and more importantly, what makes some photos not work. They tend to do a different genre or theme of photography each week and this week was actually street.

Faye Dunmall posts some excellent landscapes on Instagram.

Emmanuel Lubezki (the cinematographer for the Revenant, Birdman, Gravity, etc) has a fairly impressive Instagram account. Like his films, he seems to favour really wide angle stuff. Scroll down to his earlier posts for some really impressive candid portraits.

What area of photography do you enjoy?  Also, this ties into both your questions, so knowing what area of interest would be helpful.

Follow some of the greats like Ansel Adams.  You'll need a library card for that one.
