Here is a Q& A with our founder of Instafamed Paulina (@sheispaulina): Hi Paulina, how long did it take you to get almost a million Instagram followers? I joined Instagram two years ago. When I first joined I had no idea what Instagram was really about and didn't post often. After a year I really started to be active on Instagram and posted more frequently. At this point more followers started to engage with me and it was sort of a "domino effect" from there.
