Social media has total disrupted the modeling industry. I think it's amazing; the models have unprecedented access to exposure & their fans have a much deeper connection with them.

Still?! It's becoming more relevant everyday for models and business owners alike! At every model casting they ask numerous questions and last of which being "how many followers on Instagram do you have" There's an old saying that relates to Instagram perfectly.
