Create your Top 9 on Instagram to share your most liked images of the last year If you're scrolling jealously through an Instagram feed filled with picture-packed collages of the nine most-liked photos from someone's last year on the social media platform – then don't worry, we can teach you how to create and share exactly the same thing! Bucket loads of social media users, from A-list to D-list celebrities as well as friends and family, have been sharing the collages of their most popular shots from the last twelve months with the social hashtag #2019BestNine, #BestNine, #TopNine2019 or #TopNine. Last year, more than four million people ended up sharing the three-by-three grid of their most-liked shots by the time the New Year fireworks kicked-in. And according to developers behind the Top Nine collage, a total of 8,937,900 have already been generated and (presumably) shared with friends this year. But while the Instagram Best Nine – or Top Nine – has become a bit of an annual tradition on the social media site, it's not something that Instagram owners Facebook have built into the software.
Instead, you'll need a third-party app to rank your most liked shots and put them together in the single collage. In that way, it's very similar to the 2009 vs 2019 10-Year Challenge on Instagram that's also taking social media users by storm at the moment. How to create your Instagram Top Nine First up, you'll need to head to either TopNine.co and enter your Instagram username so the service can start finding your most-like shots. If you'd rather use the app, developer Beta Labs has also built a dedicated "Top Nine for Instagram 2019" app available for iOS and Android in the respective app stores. If you're using the website, you'll need to provide a valid email address.
