Meghan Markle issued warning over ‘fake’ Instagram followers threatening her ‘integrity’

But according to a marketing expert, Meghan’s followers had a “significant” amount (nearly 14 percent) of fake accounts and bots which could affect her “credibility” and “trustworthiness”.

Stacey Wong from digital marketing agency Own Your Space told the Mirror: “The Instagram for American Riviera Orchard showcases a robust following of over half a million, a testament to her powerful personal brand and appeal.

“However, the presence of a 13.77 percent ‘fake follower’ metric reveals a common challenge in digital brand management. Navigating this landscape requires strategic engagement and authentic content to maintain and enhance brand integrity.”

The expert said that the fake followers not only distort engagement metrics but also “undermine the authenticity and trustworthiness of her online presence”.

She explained: “Having 7.25 percent suspicious mass followers and 6.52 percent likely bots or fake accounts presents a significant threat to the integrity of her brand.

“These fake followers not only distort engagement metrics but also undermine the authenticity and trustworthiness of her online presence. With the rise of influencer marketing and the increasing emphasis on genuine connections with audiences, the presence of fake followers can tarnish Markle’s credibility and hinder her ability to effectively communicate with her genuine followers.”

Ms Wong added: “The demographic breakdown of Meghan’s brand audience on Instagram, predominantly female and within the 25-34 age range, indicates a highly targeted market segment.

“This presents a golden opportunity for tailored marketing strategies. Yet, the presence of suspicious followers underscores the importance of continual audience analysis to ensure genuine engagement and brand loyalty.”

The Duchess of Sussex’s representatives have been contacted for comment.
