What We Learned From The 10 Most-Liked Instagrams Of 2015

What We Learned From The 10 Most-Liked Instagrams Of 2015

Turns out Instagrammers are just like us...

Getting yourself onto the annual list of the most-liked Instagrams is kind of a big deal. In 2015, apparently it means getting over two MILLION likes – which, for totally unhelpful reference, is more people than live in Slovenia.

The top 10 is a little bit predictable – apart from our cover girl Selena Gomez’s impressive seventh place with a simple 'fav sweatshirt' post.

The Jenner sisters cleaned up, with Kendall book-ending the list by taking 1st and 10th place – remember that heart hair pic? But undeniably, the biggest winner is Taylor Swift, (who has currently got the most followers of everybody in the world), with five out of the ten most liked pictures of 2015.

Scottish DJ Calvin Harris features in all one of them, while Meredith, her cat, was in three. So we know who the real winner is here… All hail Meridith Gray, Taylor Swift’s Scottish Fold! Meridith effectively got 6.9 million likes on Instagram this year. That’s more than the WHOLE of Austria.

What can we ascertain from the most liked pictures? The Instagram community likes cats, Taylor Swift, grey jumpers, flowers, babies, couples and graduating...!

Someone who was noticably abscent? Kim Kardashian. Kim seems to have fallen out of favour somewhat, going from number one in 2014, to a no-show in the top 10 in 2015. The winning pic from last year - of her and Kanye kissing on their wedding day - would have come in at ninth place in this year's competition. 

We were less amused to see Justin Bieber has fallen off the rankings (just when we decided we actually like him). His 2014 reunion pic with Selena - starting the biggest are-they-aren't-they saga in history - got 1.9 million likes at the time. 

But enough of throwbacking to 2014. Check out our run down of this year's top 10 Instagram posts, below....
