We all know that celebrities (and we know that term is often applied very loosely) can earn a sweet buck with Social Media posts.

Actor Busy Philips (from White Chicks, Cougar Town and so much more) recently came out after a Cosmopolitan article praised her 'realness' on Instagram, to explain that she actually earned more from Social Media posts last year than she did acting.

It has also recently come out that when it comes to the gender pay gap, being an 'influencer' was one of the few careers in which the inequality was swapped, with female influencers out-earning their male counterparts by a third.

But just how much are these women earning from their #spon posts?

Well, a Swedish personal loan company called Advisa has apparently figured out an algorithm to estimate how much each post is worth based on celebrity follower counts.
