The Most Popular Influencers on Instagram 2022


The Most Popular Influencers on Instagram 2022

Wondering who the biggest Instagram influencers are going into 2022? We’ve made a ranking of the biggest Instagram non-celebrity accounts, in terms of the number of followers.

We’ve 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’re also not including famous brands, such as luxury brands like Chanel for example, or travel brands such as NatGeo, and renowned football clubs that are part of the overall top Instagram accounts. In short, we wanted to see who the influencers with the biggest followings on Instagram are; influencers whose main activity is in social media and who created their digital communities online, and that brands can collaborate with.

To find stats and figures (number of followers and how they evolve) that are regularly updated, as well as those for celebrity influencers, don’t hesitate to subscribe to Influence4You’s influencer discovery platform. You will be able to filter your searches with relevant criteria and verticals such as cooking, lifestyle, sports, and travel, for example. This will allow you to optimize your Instagram marketing campaigns and reach your objectives, whatever they may be– brand awareness, lead acquisition, sales, traffic, etc.

Without further ado, here’s our ranking of the top 10 Instagram influencers!
