For those unfamiliar, just what are “virtual influencers”?
How Do They Function?
All of them were made possible by anonymous but brilliant minds behind companies and individuals with an eye for innovation. They’re the ones responsible for expanding their Instagram followings and shaping these digital characters into famous people.
This character’s appearance, wardrobe, and demeanour were all deliberately crafted by the designers. They also get to pick who they hang out with, date, argue with, and work with in the social media platform Instagram. Even better, they get to keep all of the money they earn through endorsement arrangements.
The influencers are then composited onto arbitrary backgrounds by the content makers. If the virtual influencer is programmed to share a passion for travel, all they need is a high-resolution backdrop image of a far-flung place to fulfil a lifelong dream.
