Top Social Media Influencers to Follow in 2022

Afluencer Correspondent

When we talk about social media influencers, we usually think of top names like Logan Paul, PewDiePie, and Huda Beauty. While these names are extremely popular with a great pull, they’ve reached a point where it is difficult for not just small but even big brands to get a hold of them.

They charge millions and hence aren’t suitable for all kinds of businesses. This new year, you should concentrate on influencers who are about to go big. It makes a lot of sense to work with new and growing names.

People look for new talent, they’re very likely to listen to their recommendations. Also, they’re affordable and easy to work with. In this article, we’ll have a look at 25 top social media influencers who you can work with in 2022.

Let’s start:

#1 Aditi
