Selena Gomez Tops The List Of Celebs Making Mega Wealth On Instagram With Kim Coming 2nd
As well as being a breeding ground for selfies, social media is now seriously big business - and these stars are living proof that you can now turn your online presence into a multimillion-pound business.
The first-ever Instagram Rich List has been published, listing the Instagram heavyweights who are bringing in the biggest fortunes in 2017 - with some raking in up to a staggering £425,000 ($550,000) a post.
The list - divided into celebrities and 'influencers' - identifies the stars who are cleverly monetising their selfies and making millions in their field.
Pop princess Selena Gomez tops the list for celebrities, while beauty entrepreneur Huda Kattan pipped British Forumger Zoella to the post when it came to influencers.
According to the team of experts at Hopper HQ, the Instagram scheduling service who compiled the lists, the social media platform has helped propel these stars to wealth beyond their wildest dreams thanks to product endorsements and sponsorship deals.
And while some of them are already millionaires in their own right, others have successfully wielded their online influence into a viable money-making scheme.
