Cristiano Ronaldo has set a world record by passing the 500 million follower mark on Instagram. The social network launched in 2010 is the second most used in Latin America, according to eMarketer.
Social media presence goes far beyond vanity. Instagram is no different. The platform that entered our lives in 2010 is among the most popular with the younger generations and its good management allows it to penetrate the market.
That’s why it’s very interesting to know that today a record has been set on the app. For the first time in its history, a user has reached 500 million followers.
Cristiano Ronaldo is the first user to have 500 million followers on Instagram. The leader of the Portuguese national team at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar has reached a milestone on the social network. Although this number had already been reached, only the Instagram account itself had done so. Therefore, it is a world record.
What is the reason for Cristiano Ronaldo’s success on social media?
In a recent interview before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the former Manchester United star gave a singular answer.
It’s not just because I play good soccer, I think the rest is relevant, you have to be charismatic. I think that being beautiful also helps,” said “CR7” . “I do not know the real reason, but I am a fruit that people want to bite,” he added.
