Forbes Recognizes Top Influencers of Social Media; This Quarter – Fitness, Beauty, and Home
Each is respected and admired and hold tremendous influence over millions. And now, they get proper recognition. Forbes has released a list of the top influencers in each respected market ranging from fitness, comedy, fashion, and food. The top influencers will be released three at a time, each quarter of the year. Forbes will not include established celebrities who already have a large following before moving to social media. Instead, they will focus on influencers who’ve turned platforms on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook into fortunes and empires. (Some of these individuals make as much as $300,000 per YouTube video).

Beauty – Zoe Sugg, this 27-year-old British is the beauty queen. She became famous by posting makeup “hauls” online and now has her own beauty line “Zoella Beauty.”
