Influencers have taken the Internet by storm. English dictionaries included the term ‘Influencer’ back in 2019, but influencers have technically been around for a while. Even without a specific term, ‘Influencer’ used to be reserved for celebrities. But now, thanks to social media, anyone can gain followers and create content. Influencers nowadays even include dogs. That’s right, lots of dog content! And we love it!
