Today, there are the verified influencers who have millions of dedicated fans on their Instagram. There are also micro influencers - those with between 2,000 and 50,000 followers. But when are you really Insta-famous? Â


If you thought you were already Insta-famous with 2000 followers, then you are wrong. You obviously need a lot more followers if you really want to stand out on the Gram. Do you aspire to become an Influencer? Then that can be annoying now with all the others that have gone before you.

Online 'celebrity'

Don't worry, luckily you don't need millions of followers to be considered an online celebrity According to The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), everyone with more than 30,000 followers is considered an online "celebrity," meaning that they must adhere to strict advertising and regulatory requirements. These are social media guidelines especially for influencers who post a lot of advertisements and collaborate with sponsors.

So, now you know how many followers you need to call yourself Insta-famous! Â
