Top 100 Instagramers
Instagram is huge. However, just how popular are the top 100 Instagramers?
Now, you might have an idea as to who would be top of that particular list when it comes to popularity but there are certainly a few shocks in store both with the names and also how many people are following them as well.
You will of course be aware of what Instagram is, unless you have been living on the moon or something, and it is no surprise to discover that Instagram itself is at number 1 with over 180 million but it is after that when things start to get interesting.
What you then find is that there are a number of famous women battling it out for the coveted position of the most followed human on Instagram and it is probably not in the order you would expect especially when you discover that Selena Gomez is actually top of the pile with a staggering 94 million followers. Next, you have Taylor Swift with 88 million followers and you then drop down to Ariana Grande with 81 million before Beyonce and then Kim Kardashian (who most would have put at the top) makes an appearance.
But what about the most followed guy on Instagram? Who makes it to the number one spot with guys on the top 100 Instagramers? Well, with this there is probably less of a surprise as it ends up being Justin Bieber who is the most followed guy with 77 million followers. This actually means that he is the 7th most followed person on the website so he is doing not too bad.
When it comes to the world of sport, then the person that comes top is soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo who comes in just being Justin Bieber with a total of 72 million followers. With this, he is way ahead of any other sports person on the top 100 Instagramers list as he then has several of the Jenners close behind along with a number of other musicians.
However, it is not just individuals that are able to make their mark on this website as companies and organizations also know how to take advantage of Instagram from a marketing point of view. Take for example Nike. They are in 13th place of the most followed accounts on Instagram with a staggering 59 million followers and close behind them are accounts linked to National Geographic with 57 million followers which is still pretty impressive.
But what are the surprises on this list? Who appears to have less followers than you would perhaps expect considering who is finishing high up on the list?
Well, perhaps one person would be Miley Cyrus as you would expect her to be battling against the likes of Justin Bieber when it comes to using social media and the years she has spent trying to build her following. In this instance she has kind of lost out as she currently sits in 20th position with 49 million followers so she has a lot of followers to build if she wants to get near the top ten.
Another surprise is probably Katy Perry. She is a huge success on Twitter but she seems to be lagging a bit on Instagram. She has more followers than Miley but she is still sitting in 17th position and is probably not best pleased at that.
But how many followers do you need in order to get into the top 100 Instagramers? Well, probably less than you imagine because in 100th position at this moment is Vogue with 11 million followers and it is pretty tight down there at the bottom as well. However, this list is certainly something that is constantly changing but it does give you some insight into who is popular and who is perhaps just not doing as well as you would like to think.
Perhaps the main thing to take home about this is the simple fact that the most popular people are really being followed by a crazy number of people and these celebrities need millions more in order to move further up the ladder. Can they do it? Well, only time will tell.
