Instagram was introduced as a social media platform in the year 2010. At that time, it did not gain any popularity as it was the time when Facebook was one of the most preferred social media platforms. After 10 years what started off as an obscure and bizarre platform where users only shared pictures and videos, became a big business. The content might be something that hasn’t changed much but Instagram became a platform that has given influencers/bloggers and many other entities a chance to enhance their reach. This was when users were allowed to use hashtags and photo-tagging as well.
Instagram today has become one of the largest and the most lucrative platforms where even celebrities can work their side-hustle and stay connected to their fans and people who are interested in doing business with them. Celebrities cash in on followers who are eager to know what they are wearing, what’s their favorite hangout place, where they dine-in or simply be in their leisure hours, who they are dating and many other aspects of their celebrity life other than the usual limelight.
The intense scrutiny fans and the media places on the celebrities contributes in a positive way to these celebrities.
