Have I got what it takes to be InstaFamous?

Reckon you're ready for internet superstardom?

If you've ever dreamed of being the next Zoella or of dethroning PewDiePie as the King of Youtube, you've probably got a pretty clear idea of what online fame is all about. A-list parties, adoring fans, tons of awesome freebies and enough cash to fill a swimming pool, right?

Not necessarily.

What you see on screen is rarely the complete picture. The seemingly perfect worlds of the 'InstaFamous' are usually carefully edited portrayals of the life they want you to see. In truth, the odds of achieving online stardom are pretty slim and, even if you ARE talented, hard working and lucky enough to get noticed, there's still no guarantee that fame will make you happy.

It just pays to know what your up against, which is why we've created the handy lil' infographic below...
