Kim Kardashian has broken another social media record, becoming the most followed person on Instagram in the whole entire world!

With a whopping 44.1 million followers, Kim has officially overtaken former reigning queen Beyonce, who has a measly 44 million followers in comparison. Anyone else feeling a bit insignificant right now?

If you ask us there are loads of reasons to give Kim a follow, no-one else causes such a stir with their multiple flawless selfies, or belfies for that matter! The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also uses the platform to put rumours to rest, share adorable pics of her daughter North and even offers rare glimpses of husband Kanye West.

Now this might seem like fairly insignificant news, but it was through Instagram that Kim caused the contouring craze and it's safe to say daily make-up regimes have been far more complex ever since. The reality star even released a book 'Selfish' dedicated to the art of the selfie, which as the description suggests contained a load of Kim selfies.

Reaching such dizzying heights of Insta-fame must have it's downsides though. Kimmy will never understand the adrenaline rush of reaching the '11 likes' milestone which sees usernames replaced with an actual figure. It just never gets old.
