It might not be obvious, but most of them only have 1% engagement rate which means that only 1% of the followers are truly “authentic.” However, don’t get me wrong. These “1%” are crucial and responsible for more than 80% of the trending topics.

Selena Gomez has 134.5 million followers, but her average likes is only 1.3 million, which yell out her engagement rate to be 1.02%. Even though Cristiano has just 1.6million likes in the latest ten posts, he still gets a higher engagement rate than Selena Gomez. We can also see that Leo Messi has the most top engagement rate above 2%.
