As Instagram hits its ninth year of operation, the community of users is steadily growing and Insta famous stars are continuing to rise. Sure, we know the names Chiara Ferragni, Cameron Dallas (both #legend cover alumni), Camila Coelho, Aimee Song and Yoyo Cao, but they’re from the Hollywood of Instagram. Where does that leave our dear old influencers in humble #homekong? We’re at a time that anybody around you could be a potential influencer – that girl standing in front of you in the local coffee shop queue could be a digital ambassador for Chanel beauty and that guy you saw at the gym could be a fitness influencer with 100,000 followers. Heck, even the cat that crossed your path might have its own Instagram account. So, who is definitively “influential”?
Well, fret not! In the past we’ve brought you lists from the “#legend stock index of influencers” (don’t try to look that up, it’s not an official term) with focuses ranging from fashion to global, and from Chinese to Gen-Z. But we think it is prime time we revisited our #legend100hk listing. We thought for the longest time about how to best present this list to you. Initially, we thought of sorting them by category on interest, but that didn’t pan out because nobody is that one-dimensional and opposites do attract – after all, a fitness fanatic can also be a foodie. We will let you decide! Just simply click on the influencer you would like to vote UP and vote!
