Ah, Instagram. We love it, we hate it.

As influencers, we cannot live without it. As a small part of the global community of 800 million, we’re happy to celebrate the big milestones.

From the new stories to the AD debate, Instagram knows how to make sure people talk the most ever-changing app of all times.

If you are looking to celebrate your own top posts, the best tool is probably the site aptly named 2017BestNine.com

Unsurprisingly, avocados and puppies (did you know the top pet of 2017 is @jiffpom – Pomerian, US)

And even if you’re not interested in creating your own Best 9 it can be interesting to see what the Best 9 was for some of the larger accounts you follow.

In case you were wondering, this was Beyonce’s top post.
