"Insta-famous" is a coined term for a person who is famous on Instagram because they have thousands of likes and followers. They usually posts selfies, food that they eat, places they have visited or some of their friends to update their "fans" or followers on a daily basis. Some of these insta-famous people use automated Instagram DM to thank their fans. Instagram allows users to send different types of automated messages.
