8 billion people on November 15, 2022. That is the figure projected by the UN to be reached in the coming weeks. But how many people are using Instagram worldwide? According to data published by Meta, the number of instagram users worldwide is 1.28 billion. More than 16% of the world’s population therefore uses this social network.
But if this is the global figure of Instagram usage what is the Most liked Instagram post in History? Brace yourselves. The photo with the most likes in Instagram history is of an egg. Posted by Chris Godfrey’s @word_record_egg account this account managed to break the guinness record by reaching 56 million likes. The photo was posted on January 4, 2019.
Most liked IG post
Yes, you read that correctly. The photo with the most likes in history is a picture of an egg. The photo became a meme within seconds of its creation. This was definitely a phenomenon that created interest and debate among experts in the field.
The second most liked Instagram post in history is the pregnancy announcement of Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriguez. The Instagram post, published on Oct. 28, 2021, reached 32.6 million likes. But why did Ronaldo’s post receive so many likes? The explanation is also given by the number of followers the current Manchester United player has. In fact, Ronaldo has 493 million followers on Instagram and is the most followed account in the world on Instagram behind only the official Instagram account, which has 557 million.
In third position, however, is the photo, posted by former rapper xxxTentacion, which received 30.1 million likes. In the top 20 positions among latri we find the photo of the America’s Cup victory with Argentina’s Lyon Messi posted on July 11, 2021 and which received 21.8 million likes. Or even the photo of Billie Elish who when she showed her blond hair received 22.7 million likes.
