Abstract

Content creators, arbiters of style and taste-makers – these are just some of the terms that explain the relatively recent phenomenon of social media influencers (SMIs). These are individuals who regularly use social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Snapchat, to create and share content about their perceived expertise, enthusiasm or experience in a given area. They can build large consumer followings by virtue of being seen as original, creative, entertaining, informative and accessible.
