When it comes to the world of Instagram, you’ll be glad you took a selfie with your favorite celebs
The world of digital photography is no stranger to the idea of taking a selfie — at least, for some celebs.
But what if you were one of them?
A new study by the Journal of the American Medical Association found that selfies with famous people are more likely to be more memorable.
The study examined 1,638 people’s Instagram posts from 2011 to 2014 and found that celebs who took selfies with their celebrities were more likely than those who posted photos without them to have more Instagram followers.
The researchers also said that photos posted with celebrities were also more likely for those with high scores to garner more likes and comments.
“Celebrity selfies are also more popular with Instagram users because of the large number of celebrities who have their own Instagram accounts,” study author Dr. James O’Neill, a researcher at the University of Southern California’s Graduate School of Business, said in a press release.
“They may be able to use the platform as a platform for engagement and promotions, which in turn could lead to higher engagement.”
Celebrities have long been considered as the pinnacle of social media.
With the rise of social networks like Instagram, it’s not surprising that some celebrities are getting more into the act.
The new study suggests that celebrities aren’t just using Instagram to engage with fans, but they also can benefit from the platform to promote their products or promote their careers.
“We believe the importance of social platforms to the business of social engagement is growing,” O’Neil said.
“More and more, we are seeing the benefits that can come from utilizing these platforms for promotional purposes, which could lead advertisers to make a more informed decision.”
Celebbrities also have more clout than the average person in terms of how many followers they have, so it makes sense that they might want to keep their posts to themselves.
According to the study, the average Instagram user had 6,200 followers in 2014.
The average celebrity has over 8 million followers, according to the report.
In total, there were 3,769,037 Instagram followers for celebrities in 2014, according the study.
The number of Instagram followers of celebrities with the highest scores is 1,874,936.
The highest-scoring celeb had 3,892,742 Instagram followers and was ranked number two.
O’Connell said that when it comes down to Instagram and the rest of social networking platforms, it is important for celebs to be mindful of how they use it.
“The Instagram platform has become a very powerful tool for social influencers to reach a wider audience, and we encourage celebrities to be responsible with their content,” O’monney said.
He added that the study shows that there are plenty of people who don’t know what to do with the platform.
“Instagram allows celebrities to create their own content, and some may even be using it to promote themselves, but we believe that the influencers can benefit more from using the platform responsibly,” he said.
The findings were published online on June 10.
