Why Is Selena Gomez Hailed As The Queen Of Instagram 2016?

As reported by CNET, Selena Gomez accounted for eight of the top 10 most-liked celebrity photos in 2016 and has more than 103 million followers. Only Instagram itself has more. Gomez's most-liked photo this year was a Coca-Cola ad, with 5.9 million likes. Gomez is one of the several under-40 female entertainers who dominate Instagram, the Facebook-owned social network said Thursday.

The 24-year-old recently completed a questionnaire for Thrive Global about her heath, and she revealed that she’s made significant changes in her life lately. For starters, she’s keeping her hands to herself when it comes to using her cell phone. MTV reported that Gomez has opened up about what her life’s like after taking a three-month, self-imposed hiatus, and she paints quite the peaceful picture.

“I recently took 90 days off. During that time I did not have my cellphone. It was the most refreshing, calming, rejuvenating feeling,” she admitted. “Now I rarely pick up my phone, and only limited people have access to me.” Gomez said the last time she felt burned out was “three months ago, before I took a hiatus to take care of myself.”

Know About Instagram

Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them either publicly or privately on the app, as well as through a variety of other social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr. Originally, a distinctive feature was that it confined photos to a square shape, similar to Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid SX-70 images, in contrast to the 4:3 aspect ratio typically used by mobile device cameras.

In August 2015, version 7.5 was released, allowing users to upload media captured in any aspect ratio. Users can also apply digital filters to their images. Videos resolutions now include up to 1080p since July 2015 and length is now up to 60 seconds since January 2016. With the enhancement of Instagram Stories with the newly introduced Live Video, users can create and share videos with length up to 60 minutes.

Instagram was created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, and launched in October 2010 as a free mobile app. You can easily download it an App Store, for iOS or Google Play, for Android users. The service rapidly gained popularity, with over 100 million active users as of April 2012 and over 300 million as of December 2014.
