With a little help from social media platforms, celebrities are no longer a bunch of people hand-picked by casting directors and Hollywood producers. With platforms that allow everyone, regardless of their background, to express themselves, many ordinary people have become Internet stars. One of them is Karen Ip, who is best known by her digital name Fruitypoppin.
Karen Ip found her star through Instagram and has used her popularity on the platform to shine on other social media platforms like YouTube.
