With more than 200 million active users, Snapchat is one of the fastest-growing social networks. Every brand that wants to attract young people should seriously consider partnering with Snapchat influencers. What’s special about this platform is that you can do so-called Takeovers, where a selected influencer takes over some individual or company’s account and engages with its audience for 24 hours.
In this article, you can learn more about the 10 top Snapchat influencers and what makes them so popular.
No. 1: King Bach
Andrew B. Bachelor, who likes to call himself King Bach, isn’t a new influencer. In fact, if you’ve ever used Vine, you’ve probably seen one of his videos. He was one of the most popular Vine stars, and he continued making similar videos for Snapchat. He became so famous that he appeared in many movies and TV shows.
Here are some of his most significant projects: He was one of the leading actors in “Fifty Shades of Black”, which is a hilarious parody of the famous movie, and also starred in “The Babysitter” and “The Mindy Project”.
No. 2: Logan Paul
Just like King Bach, Logan Paul first started publishing videos on Vine, and later became popular on all social media platforms. He’s appeared in some comedies but, as he said, his ambition is to become a movie director. He has an unusual hobby – boxing.
Logan Paul collaborated with famous brands such as Nike, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Pepsi, and he’s one of the highest-paid Snapchat influencers ever.
No. 3: Frankie Greek
More than an influencer, Frankie Greek considers herself an online journalist and storyteller. Her background in making television shows helped her establish herself as a sort of celebrity host. She often does Takeovers for famous brands and other influencers.

No. 9: Geir Ove Pedersen
America has the biggest number of Snapchat users, so it’s no wonder some of the top Snapchat influencers come from the U.S. However, there are also some very famous influencers around the world. One of them is Geeohsnap – the username of Norwegian Geir Ove Pedersen. He’s worked with companies such as Starbucks and Disney.
Fun fact: He has the same name as a famous Norwegian politician, and that’s why he prefers being called by his Snapchat username to avoid confusion.
