From the little account of the career achievements of Cristiano Ronaldo, it is clear to see how he has come to have the most Instagram followers. Yet, the field of play and the world of social media are entirely two different realms. So, how in fact did he become so popular on Instagram?

First of all, as one would expect, he uses Instagram to share updates about his career life with his fans. You can find photos of him and his teammates getting ready for a match or arriving at the venue for the day’s game. With this type of direct updates from no less a person than Ronaldo himself, it is only natural that every one of his teaming fans across the world would want to follow him on a platform where he makes such updates by more visual than textual means.

Even more, apart from his career life, Ronaldo also shares some of his most intimate moments on Instagram. He posts loved-up photos of himself and his family on vacations or just having a nice quiet time at home in his mansion. This almost always brings him closer to fans who relate to him not just as a beloved star but simply as a man. This explains why he is so popular and has the most followed Instagram followers.
