I know, I know, it's not a rocket science to know the answer. But what makes it?
It looks like the only girl people don’t feel bored to watch again and again on Instagram is Selena Gomez. She kept her position intact on the most popular photo sharing site in 2016.
Not only that Gomez kept her top position on Instagram throughout the year, but she also earned the maximum followers this year. The music star got 50 million new followers in the past 12 months. More than 105 million people follow her on Instagram as of today! And following is the most popular post by Selena Gomez on Instagram:
It’s not like that Gomez is the most famous person on the planet. Stars like Tylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, and Beyonce, who are far more popular than Gomez in the real world have fewer followers on Instagram than the ex-girlfriend of Justin Bieber. Still, what makes her the most famous star on the photo sharing site?
American magazine Vanity Fair has done some research to get the answer. The magazine thinks one of the reasons for her popularity is that she doesn’t post very often on Instagram. That keeps her fans waiting for something new, and when she posts a picture, it feels like an event to celebrate to her followers. Another major factor is that her fans are highly engaged. She gets a hell lot of reactions from her fans once she posts something on her account.
“I try to find a good balance of just being 100 percent myself and knowing when to post a really good selfie with good lighting,” the 23-year-old singer and actress has told The Hollywood Reporter when asked the reason behind her popularity on Instagram.
Let’s not forget about her on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber. Some people just try to relate her every picture with the status of her relationship with the singer, which is currently in off mode. However, the gossips and rumors surrounding the relationship keep her on discussion frequently.
