Friends (or chums if you prefer) you can definitely add on Instagram/Facebook. No reason not to. I added loads of people at various points from high school, and vice versa, it's not a big deal.

As for teachers, I think it depends on the teachers. I've certainly followed a number of mind on social media, bearing in mind that it totally depends on the relationship you had with them -- one of my "teachers" I knew 99% from the fact that we had a friend in common, you don't need the details, but that I knew was ok because it was a unique situation. I also "friended" most of my teachers from my college days after the fact. I think it helps to message them if you're unsure and just be like "I'd love to keep in touch if you're able to", but I also don't see it as a big deal to send a request and let them figure out their comfort zone with former students on their own
