Forbes Announced its’ new quarterly Top Influencers List in April 2017. The list ranks ten superstars from three unique categories. The first list featured influencers from Beauty, Fitness, and Home.

Standouts of the first list included:


Lilly Singh

Hannah Hart

King Bach


Damon and Jo

Kiersten Rich

Murad and Nataly Osmann


Mari Takahashi

Sonja Reid


Through their partnership with Traackr, influencer analytics firm, they measured reach, audience size, propensity for virality and engagement related to their area of expertise.

To make it fair for organically grown social media accounts, Forbes only included influencers who made it big by building their fame from the internet up, rather than established celebrities who also happen to have large audiences online.

The influencers also only mostly post in the English Language.

The September Categories will feature Parenting, Pets, and Fashion followed by Food, Tech & Business and Sports in December 2017.
