Local actor Tosh Zhang's popularity shoots up once again following the release of The Lion Men, with him having amassed nearly 100,000 followers on Instagram so far.

According to a report on Lianhe Wanbao, this number exceeds those of other actors who have had wider exposure on screen, such as Elvin Ng, Ian Fang and Romeo Tan.

Social networking sites such as Instagram, Twitter, Weibo, and Facebook are now important tools for artistes when it comes to connecting with their fans.

Not only can celebs share the latest updates about their lives with fans anytime, these communication platforms also allow them to clarify misunderstanding and gauge their popularity.

A comparison of the Instagram accounts of Singapore's young male artistes shows that Zhang has more followers than fellow The Lion Men co-stars Noah Yap and Wang Weiliang, as well as other popular television actors.

With more 99,000 followers, Zhang heads the list with his bad boy image.
