We’ve reached the end of the year, a time for celebration and reflection over the year that was 2016.
It’s the time of the year that people begin to make lists and reflect on their best and worst moments counting down top 10 of everything.
Instagram, one of the leading social networks in the world, is no different.
As the New Year gets closer and we say goodbye to 2016, Instagram have put together lists of things like top emojis, events and hashtags allowing us to reminisce and see what really went on during this year.
So, without further ado, here is what 2016 looked like through the eyes of Instagram.
First up, we’ll start with the top 10 most-used emoji on Instagram for the year, used in comments, captions and hashtags.
- Classic Red Heart
- Heart Eyes Face
- Laughing Face With Tears of Joy
- Kissy Winky Face
- Two Pink Hearts
- Smiley Face
- A-Okay Hand Sign
- Peace Hand Sign
- Party Cone
- Blue Heart
Yep, apparently everyone was bursting with love this year because not only was the classic red heart the most-used emoji, but it was one of three heart emojis to make the list. Awww how nice.
The use of the heart emojis goes hand-in-hand with the most-used Instagram hashtag of 2016, which happened to be…drumroll please…
Yep, #love was the most used hashtag all year. We agree it’s not exactly the most exciting, but at least people were spreading the love, right?
