Well when it comes to superstars like Taylor Swift and Katherine Heigel, the answer could be upwards of 6 million dollars!

In the throws of social media promotion and marketing strategy, be careful where and when you decide to post images of celebrities and other notable figures - unless you are prepared to pay!
