When Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger first introduced Instagram to the world back in 2010, little did they know, in less than a decade, their photo-sharing platform would turn into a selfie-filled, multi-billion-dollar platform used by over 700 million users worldwide.
While Hollywood stars and sports personalities have more than their fair share of Instagram followers with Selena Gomez leading the game with 125m followers, followed by Ariana Grande 112m, Cristiano Ronaldo 109m, Beyonce 105m, Taylor Swift 102m to Kim Kardashian’s 102m followers (as seen on August 23, 2017).
