The age of the Insta-babes

Apparently, taking sexy, half-naked selfies in front of the mirror all day long can be rather lucrative. Insta-famous Australian model Renee Somferfield (pictured) managed to  launch her own modelling career by posting a lot of photos of herself (mainly clad in a skimpy bikini) on Instagram. With over 516000 followers, she now has modelling gigs rolling in – her latest for Maxim.

Women around the world are flocking to Instagram to get their own slice of this pie. Becoming an Insta-celeb happens everyday. It’s about content all the way, and the demand for semi-naked women is always high online.

With the rise of Insta-fame, I wonder whether we should see this as another objectification of women online or if becoming an ‘Insta-babe’ can be empowering?
