Instagram is like the image gallery, media player and texting app on your phone all in one. While Instagram has seen a significant rise in users, in fact at the last count, it just surpassed the 1 billion user count, there are people who have leveraged the growing popularity of the image-sharing app to grow their influence.
Interestingly, these influencers can be found in any niche including sporting, entertainment, music, fashion, business… you name it. So, regardless of your interest, there’s surely an influencer for you.
But, for this post, we’ll only focus on the top of class, crème la crème of the influencer world. Ready to see if your favorite influencer made the list?
2019 was an active year for Cristiano Ronaldo who is also fondly called CR7 by fans on Instagram. He jumped ahead of singer Selena Gomez recently to become the most followed celebrity on the photo-sharing platform and has since maintained that position.
With more than 204 million Instagram followers, only behind the eponymous @instagram account, CR7 is without doubt our top influencer by fans count.
Die-hard fans can expect the Juventus player and Portuguese national football team captain to translate his successes on the app to the pitch. And, if you are rooting for him to score more than 20 goals this season, you can go online to place your bet with Unibet to show your support. Or bet on Ronaldo to score the most goals on Euro 2020 this summer, with an excellent odd + 900 from Unibet.
Ariana has come a long way since she first came to the spotlight in 2008. She started her career as part of the crew in the Broadway musical, ”13” and went on to play Cat Valentine in the teen focused, Nickelodeon TV series “Victorious.”
She switched to music as she followed her passion for singing. By 2013, her first debut album was released after signing with Republic Records.
Ariana is a Grammy award winner and multiple award nominations including been nominated as the Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.
Dwayne Johnson (The Rock)
Dwayne Johnson with more than 172 million followers on Instagram takes the third spot as our top influencer. Dwayne has over the years reinvented himself from a wrestler – WWE fans would definitely remember his wrestling days – to a world-famous actor, entertainer and businessman.
He constantly shares backstage images of the movies he is in, talks about his family and his workout routines.
Following a break from social media, the self-styled “queen of social media” is without surprises sitting pretty on the number four spot in our top Instagram influencer ranking.
The “Good for You” crooner first came to public notice after her role in playing Alex Russo on the Emmy Award winning Disney channel TV series “Wizards of Waverly Place”
Gomez went solo with her first studio album “Stars Dance” in 2013 which became the first in many albums on the Billboard 200. Two years later, her second studio album “Revival” achieved platinum certification by RIAA.
Kylie takes our number five spot on the biggest Instagram influencer list. The youngest in the Kardashian-Jenner clan she was recently named the youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes.
While many people questioned why Kylie is described as “self-made” by the publication, one thing everyone can agree on is that she’s smart and has worked her socks off to get to where she is – at least, her 162 million Instagram followers is an evidence of that.
Aside from her regular appearance on the “Keeping Up with The Kardashians” TV series, she also has a thriving beauty company, Kylie Cosmetics and a spin-off TV show “Life of Kylie”.
