Top 10 Instagrammers of 2022 in the USA

Instagram is a highly visual social media channel, and therefore is in many ways the perfect medium for brands to tell their story. All they need to do is to ensure that people actually see their Instagram images and engage with them.

A few well-known brands have built up sizeable Instagram followings themselves –  Nike with 186 million followers and Victoria’s Secret with 70.9 million followers have done an amazing job with their own accounts. However, this is well beyond the capabilities of most brands. The average company can reach a much higher audience by working with one or more influencers. But finding influencers on social media containing more than 100M+ profiles can be daunting to brands. That is the reason that influencer platforms were first set up – to simplify the influencer search process for brands.

It is not a simple process determining who the top Instagram influencers are, and it would be impossible to categorically state who were The top 10 Instagrammers.

Therefore, we listed only the top 10 Instagrammers in terms of the number of followers. We decided to limit this ranking to “real” influencers, meaning we didn’t count celebrities (actors, singers, or reality TV stars for example) or other public figures (politicians, famous sportsmen, and other famous personalities who wouldn’t have needed social media to achieve their fame).

Furthermore, we also didn’t include famous and luxury brands for example – Nike, Victoria’s Secret, Louis Vuitton, Chanel; or travel brands such as NatGeo, and renowned football clubs that are part of the overall top Instagram accounts. In short, we only wanted to see who are the influencers with the biggest followings on Instagram; influencers whose main activity on social media is to create engaging content for their digital communities online, and that brands can collaborate with.

Without further ado, here’s our ranking of the Top 10 Instagrammers of 2022 in the USA!
