Sorry Kylie, but the most liked post on Instagram is now an egg.
Instagram has over 500 million active daily users. Every second of every day, people like photos posted from their favorite brands, friends, celebrities, and influencers. While some users battle for the most likes through posting content, others simply enjoy engaging with the content on their feed. But why do likes really matter? Well, Instagram helps drive the economy. The highly followed influencers you know and love use their platforms to share products and brands straight to your feed. Likes fuel the economy through the power of marketing. If you were wondering what posts receive the most attention on Instagram, you have come to the right place. In this blog, we will give you a rundown on the most liked Instagram posts. From your favorite celebrities to the most popular egg in the world, you will not be disappointed!
On January 4, the world came together to break the world record for the most liked picture on Instagram by liking a photograph of an egg. With 53.7 million likes, the egg successfully became the most liked photos on Instagram by a landslide. The egg beat out Kylie Jenner’s most liked picture on Instagram by 35 million likes in January of 2019. The caption of the most liked post read, “Let’s set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram. Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this.”
The second most liked Instagram post pictures Kylie Jenner holding the hand of her newborn baby, Stormi. After keeping her pregnancy to herself, she broke the internet when she broke her silence on the pregnancy. The photo has racked up over 18 million likes and is one of Kylie Jenner’s four posts on this top 10 list. This photo once held the title of most liked photo on Instagram, until the egg challenged her claim of the world record.
With over 16 million likes, the top third most liked Instagram post is from rapper XXXTentacion before his death on June 2018. The photo picturing the rapper’s side profile still remains one of the two photos on his Instagram feed. Prior to his death, he released a music video in which he attended his own funeral… oddly eerie.
