A day or two to go for 2016 and Instagram is flooded with 2015 #throwbacks. Here’s how you get yours.
2015bestnine.com is a website that will go through any public Instagram account and find the nine most popular images and arrange them in a grid.
All you need to do is visit the site and enter your Instagram handle. It crunches the numbers, and voila! your grid of nine most popular posts is ready. They also add a banner with stats like total likes to the number of posts and a Thank you from you to your followers.
But if like me, your posts-to-likes ratio isn’t flattering, you can get rid of the banner all together by selecting the ‘Picture only version’ option under the image.
To share the image, you could save the photo post or just share the link to your grid on Facebook or Twitter with a single tap.
If you’ve already shared your best nine posts, just search for #2015bestnine to track it.
If you enjoyed this summarisation of individuals by their top Instagram posts, you might want to sign up for the beta test of their upcoming app, Nine. It’s like Tinder for Instagram accounts. You can swipe right to like or left to dislike the grid layout of someone’s Instagram posts.
The app will start beta tests in January and you could be one of the first to try it out.
