Most popular Belgium-based influencers on Instagram 2018

Most-followed influencers on Instagram based in Belgium as of July 2018

Most popular Belgium-based influencers on Instagram 2018 In July 2018, Gaëlle Garcia Diaz was the most-followed of all Instagram influencers coming from Belgium. A popular YouTube vlogger, the Belgian had a relationship for several years with fellow-vlogger and actor Jimmy Labeeu (who is not mentioned in this ranking, despite his Belgian origins). Most influencers in this ranking, however, are either active in music (such as rapper Roméo Elvis, DJ Amelie Lens, singer-songwriter Angele and Dutch singer and Belgian resident Josje Huisman) or in fashion, like Matthias Geerts and Chloé Kitembo. Instagram users in Belgium were typically women, aged 18 to 24 years old, which could be a potential explanation for these interests.

Instagram had three million active users in Belgium. When compared to the rest of Europe, though, Belgium did not rank among the leading countries when it comes to the use of the photo app. The share of the Belgian population that used Instagram was lower than, for example, that of Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and its neighbors Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

In a 2018 survey among teenagers from Flanders (the northern, Dutch-speaking part of Belgium), Instagram was said to be the third most used app Facebook and Snapchat. Compared to the same survey held in 2016, however, the application saw the biggest increase of all social media platforms.
