Who has the Most Followers on Instagram in 2017? From Kendall Jenner to Selena Gomez, Here’s the Latest List
The topic of who has the most followers on Instagram is indeed a new territory. Just a few years ago, we were all obsessing over Facebook posts and trying to understand Twitter. However, pop culture’s newest social sharing platform trumps them all. With over 600 million monthly active users, Instagram has become the largest social selling platform ever. Its impact is particularly relevant in the fashion industry. Quickly, the idea of collecting Instagram followers and monetizing interactions became a growing business. Before we knew it, people around the world were in a race to become the most followed on Instagram.
Instagram fame has catapulted stars like Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez (who has 115 million followers) into superstardom. Not to say that they wouldn’t have found success without it. However, it certainly wouldn’t have been as viral. The industry quickly took note. From entertainers promoting new albums to celebrities launching multi-million dollar companies, Instagram followers began to carry some serious dollar signs. I’m sure you’re familiar with the likes of Kylie Jenner and her always sold-out lip kit. Certainly a few of Kylie Jenner’s 90 million Instagram followers are also shoppers.
However, in the race for securing the most Instagram followers, only a few can really be on top. In December of 2016, Instagram revealed exactly who these most followed people were. However, a few months have past since that announcement so we logged on and did our own research. Keep reading below to see the updated list of the 10 most followed Instagram accounts of 2017.
