Instagram influencers are everywhere whether they are actual celebrities or just normal people who have accumulated a massive online presence. But not all of those influencers’ followers actually exist. Have you ever wondered which celebs have the most “fake followers”? Fasthosts.co.uk analyzed celebrities’ and influencers’ Instagram profiles to determine who had the highest percentage of fake followers:
Kylie Jenner wins that contest with the highest percentage of fake followers. Out of 223 million people who follow Kylie, 63 million accounts are fake or bots. 63 million people is approximately the population of France! The Jenner’s and Kardashians are an ever-running theme in the fake following breakdown with Kendall Jenner taking second place. Following the sisters in seventh and ninth place are the pair’s half-sisters, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian.
Many high-profile figures are on the list including singers, athletes, and actors. It’s worth noting however that most of the celebrities with the “fakest” following online are singers. Nine out of the top 25 celebrities on the list are from the music industry.
However, having fake or ‘bot’ followers, doesn’t automatically mean that celebrities paid for the follower boost. It does however prove that you can’t believe any numbers that you see online. And while many people get stressed over follower numbers, those people you see with tons aren’t all legitimate. While followers, real or fake, do not accurately represent the fame of an individual, people may associate the number of their online following to their worth or popularity.
