This Star Makes Millions Off Social Media

Last year, Forbes magazine got flak for naming Kylie Jenner the world’s youngest self-made billionaire. Critics pointed out that Jenner came from a rich and influential family and was hardly “self-made.”

But now, it looks like that criticism was misplaced. Kylie, in fact, makes a fortune as a social media influencer. HopperHQ.com, a site that ranks social media influencers, says Jenner earns about $1 million for every picture she posts on Instagram. That’s more than many Americans will make over the course of their lifetimes.

“The 21-year-old reality star and Kylie Cosmetics founder has taken the top spot on HopperHQ.com’s Instagram Rich List for the second year running,” Market Watch reports. “And that’s more money than many people without at least a bachelor’s degree make in a lifetime, based on census data that finds someone with an associate degree earned $1.1 million on average, while high school graduates earned $910,000. (Those with a bachelor’s or more made $1.8 million and up over the course of their lives.)”

The second-highest-paid social media influencer is singer Ariana Grande, who earns about $966,000 per Instagram post. Grande has more followers than Jenner, with 159 million followers to Jenner’s 141 million. International soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo has 173 million followers, beating both Grande and Jenner. He is the third highest-paid Instagram user, garnering about $$975,000 per post.
