Top Snapchat Influencers to Follow in 2023

With over 300 million users across the globe, Snapchat is arguably one of the most widely used social media platforms. As 2020 subjected millions to staying at home, social media users have become more dependent on receiving quality content from influencers. This has provided the ideal opportunity for brands to collaborate with social media influencers in a bid to increase their followers and promote brand awareness.  Many top commercial brands have established Snapchat marketing strategies which entice the app’s Gen Z audience. From MTV to Buzzfeed, brands and Snapchat influencers are making the most of the network’s 249 million daily active users. 

From news and entertainment, to sports and lifestyle, many industries use Snapchat’s Discover page to reach new audiences. By partnering with Snapchat influencers, brands are creating endless possibilities for audiences to engage with their content. Compared to other social networks, Snapchat’s different attributes encourage all sorts of social interaction. 

We live in a new reality where face-to-face communication is not always possible, so it comes as no surprise that Snapchat influencers are on the rise. Their ability to create raw, authentic content is encouraged by innovative features such as the drawing tool. As a result, many social media influencers have taken to Snapchat to create meme-worthy images that often go viral. 

The majority of Snapchat’s most followed users got their start on other social media platforms such as YouTube and Vine, but have since garnered a huge presence on Snapchat.
