Who has the most followers on Instagram


 
In the last decade, Instagram has become one of the most popular picture-sharing applications on the market. Released in 2010 and purchased by Facebook in 2012, the app surpassed Twitter in monthly active users with 400 million in September 2015, with an estimated 18.7 billion images hosted at the time. It boasted 500 million monthly active users in June of this year. So commanding the Instagram leader board has become no small feat. The popular accounts of Selena Gomez and Kim Kardashian have made news cycle waves for surpassing their fellow celebs. Selena Gomez became the most followed person on Instagram, surpassing her best friend, Taylor Swift. As of the very moment of this posting, Gomez is followed by 69.7 million people, which is more than the entire population of France. Gomez is said to have reached 100 millions followers as of june 2016.

Now, Selena Gomez is not the most famous person on the planet. She is not even the most famous person with an Instagram account but still possesses the maximum following. This what social media can do to you. It can make you famous. The singer-actress with 89 million followers doesn’t have a social media consultant or a method behind her backstage pics and well-lit selfies:Instead, “I go, ‘Oh, that would be great for Instagram.'”

In this age of competition for followers and likes, stars often hire digital consultants and carefully curate their social profiles. So it might come as a surprise how little thought Gomez gives to the Instagram feed that has become the app’s most followed. It comes in a moment when I capture something happening, and I go, Oh, that would be great for Instagram. I should post it. I know it’s boring, but that’s genuinely what I do. Since bumping Taylor Swift from the top spot in March, Gomez has amassed 89 million followers at press time. “It wasn’t my goal to be the most followed person,” demurs Gomez, 23, but she’s not hiding how much she enjoys the app: “It’s my favorite social platform.” As told by Gomez to a daily news channel.

Instagram audiences are predominantly young – recent U.S. data states that half of Instagram users are aged 34 years or younger. Fall 2015 data reveals that Instagram is also the preferred social network of teenage internet users and one of the most-visited social networks among teenagers in the United States. Brands are keen to reach Instagram audiences as users of the social network show high engagement rates with the displayed content. As of July 2015, Nike had close to 19 million followers on the social network. Other popular fashion brands were Adidas Originals and luxury brand Louis Vuitton as sourced on statista.

Selena Gomez is the first celebrity to reach 100 million followers on Instagram, and she hasn’t even posted anything on her account since August.

The 23-year-old actress and singer, who is currently taking a break from social media and public life because of lupus side effects, which include anxiety and depression, ranked as the most followed person on Instagram in July with 89.2 million fans. By pushing into 100 million followers, she hit a new milestone.

The record number of followers cements Gomez as the reigning queen of Instagram. An unofficial title she’s held since July, when a photo she posted became the most liked on the platform, with more than 5.6 million likes.

Gomez outranks fellow Instagram celebrities like Taylor Swift (91.5 million followers), Beyoncé (85.4 million followers) and Kim Kardashian (83.7 million followers).
