It looks being a social media addict has paid off for singer Katy Perry. The pop sensation is the first person on Twitter to reach 90 million followers! That’s more than what the Kardashian sisters have combined – how’s that for perspective. The California starlet is an active social media user, turning to it to let her fans know what she’s up to, where she is and even what she’s eating. Want to follow in her footsteps? Here’s how:
1.Keep It Fresh & Interesting
Nothing draws an audience in more than a pretty picture. Visualise your content before you upload it – think about composition, lighting, mood and framing the subject. It’s also useful to post a variety of content. Nobody wants to see yet another picture of your pet sticking its tongue out. The more visually engaging your posts are, the more people will be willing to share your content and keep those ‘like’ counts climbing.
2. Engage Your Audience
What sets a social media pro apart from the newbie is how they interact with their followers. Be engaging, reach out to your followers and respond to their questions. This give a human touch to what is otherwise just a computer or smartphone screen. It’s easy to blast out a comment or picture on Twitter, but what keeps people coming back to your profile is really how interactive and responsive you are.
3. Remember, Consistency Is Key.
There’s no point in having something amazing to post if you don’t do it on the regular. Whether it’s once a week or three times a day, be consistent when scheduling posts as this is the fastest and easiest way to build a loyal online following. Don’t assume that your social media profile will take off overnight, it won’t. Instead, dedicate time and effort in maintaining your social media presence to experience bigger gains in the long run.

If you thought the “Roar” singer celebrated her social media record in style you’d be wrong. The songstress chose to ring in the milestone by spending a low-key night at home, in her pajamas no less. But she did acknowledge her new status as the queen of social media with a tweet saying “Dang, this is tight.”
