1. She Got Her Start On Vine
When it comes to being popular on social media, Savannah is somewhat of a veteran. She got her start on the now defunct platform, Vine, which allowed users to post short video clips. At its peak, it seemed like Vine was going to be next in line to become one of the most successful social media platforms.
