Instagram provides a space for a digitalized self-presentation of individuals as well as organizations. Being image-based, it creates an illusion of credibility and intimacy thorough a connection to reality, such as places, people, or events. However, not all Instagram users might have a real individual or organization in the background - public campaigns, for example, might choose to act independently of an explicit backer. In this paper, we explore the possibility of creating a purely artificial, avatar-based presence on Instagram. Our findings indicate that while an avatar can gain visibility and presence, it may require greater investment to engage followers in a reciprocal interaction. © 2019 by the authors.
