Millionaires on Instagram: Millennials’ Display of Experiential Luxury and Personal Branding Strategies on Visual Social Media

We use content analysis and thematic analysis to analyze and discuss the strategies held by micro-celebrities. We argue that the use of geo-tags can be seen as the materialization of experiential luxury on Instagram.
