Trending Social Media’s Top Influencers With Loads Of FollowersBy Ana J
TikTok is the youngest and fastest-growing social media platform right now. With 1 billion active users worldwide, it surpasses Twitter, Snapchat, and Reddit! TikTok is now capturing audiences’ attention at the level of social media giants like Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. Influencers who came out of the platform became household names like Charli D’Amelio, Khabane Lame, and Addison Rae. Much like with any platform, the earning potential starts with having an engaged audience. The TikTok algorithm allows for new influencers to gain notoriety quickly. Your initial follower count does not prevent a video from going viral if the initial audience finds it entertaining. Influencers on the app are not just Hollywood celebrities but regular teenagers recording videos from their bedrooms. The question is, how much are these new influencers worth?
