Justin Bieber Is First Instragram User To Hit One Million Followers Milestone

Teen sensation Justin Bieber has quite the following - both online and offline - but now has proof that he is one of the world's most adored idols, after becoming the first Instagram user to reach one million followers.

Considering it was just eight months ago that Bieber posted his first Instagram photo, he managed to notch up 1,700 followers within an hour of signing up. Since then, the singer has shared 281 images and follows 15 other Instagram users, including celebrities such as his girlfriend Selena Gomez, boxer Floyd Mayweather and son of the Fresh Prince, Jaden Smith.

Bieber is closely followed by Gomez to be the second most trailed after Instagram profile, with singer Taylor Swift and reality star Kim Kardashion following close after.

The Canadian singer is quite active within the social networking circle, with 18.6 million Twitter followers under his belt, 41.5 million people 'liking' him on Facebook as well as enjoying 2.3 billion views on his YouTube channel.

More and more celebrities are enjoying the benefits of reaching out to their audience via social media platforms, allowing them to interact with their fans whilst increasing their presence. Bieber and Lady Gaga are examples of such successes, with their profiles set to increase both online and offline.

The rise of the photo-sharing site has reached dizzy heights, what with the recent celebration of achieving the registration of 27 million Instagram users.
