After posting my personal picks for my favorite Instagrams of 2017 in my last blog post I got curious about my own choices as opposed to the ones that got the most “likes” on the Instagram app and the most “likes” on my Timeline. Knowing that the viewers are quite different in both places I thought it would be interesting to see where opinions overlapped and here are the results.
First up, just as a reminder, here are my personal choices, my favorites from each month of the year:
This set, not by month but by the most “likes” on the Instagram app, in order of popularity:
I thought it was interesting that the most popular one was an Instagram of Instagrams!
And now, the most popular ones from my Facebook Timeline, these picked by people who are connected to me more personally than a lot of my Instagram followers, also in order:
As you can see, a few overlap but the one that I felt was the most significant when I had to identify what I thought was my most meaningful photo of 2017, the one of Maddie praying for her parents during Hurricane Harvey, is the one that showed up in all three places.
Seems all three sets of observers were on the same page with that image.
