Revisit your most-liked moments of 2018.
Instagram is often criticized as a place that allows people to present a hyper-idealized version of themselves. But in a world that has quickly become a blazing dumpster fire, where’s the harm in that? Instagram is for flirting, reposting memes, and getting over 200 likes on that one really good selfie you took in the summer. Thanks to Top Nine, you can remember your Instagram best nine of the year with ease.
