Let’s just crown Justin Beiber as Instagram King of the year, shall we?

By posting a pic four months ago of his royal self and “uncle Will,” AKA Will Smith, Sir Justin soared to the top of Instagram’s heap of fame.

We, apparently, really really liked that photo. As of this week, we liked it about 1,496,070 times, according to the Instagram blog that has posted the photo-sharing site’s Biggest Hits of 2013.

While Bieber took top honors for “Most Liked Instagram,” the “Most Instagrammed Day” of the year went to – drum roll, please – Thanksgiving/First Day of Hannukah, AKA  “Thanksgivukkah.”

And what about Top Hashtag? According to the blog post:

Every day, all over the world, there are around 55 million photos uploaded to Instagram and with those thousands of different hashtags are used as a way to connect and share those images. Whether it’s for connecting around a singular event like a wedding or for distributing real-time footage of a natural disaster, hashtags on Instagram help people connect with our community, find new followers, and share photos with more people. This year’s top hashtag on Instagram was ……

Another drum roll, please…


And just in case you don’t believe them, Instagram sends along some of the “fun #love Instagrams.” Check em out:




Last but certainly not least, we’d be remiss if we failed to mention what the “Top Geotagged Locations” were in 2013. Here’s what Instagram says about it:

We took a look at the location trends to find the most-Instagrammed places of 2013. Like last year, a popular location in Thailand tops the list. The Siam Paragon (สยามพารากอน)—a massive shopping complex, movie theater and aquarium in Bangkok—was our top spot, edging out 2012’s most-Instagrammed place, Bangkok’s International Airport. Suvarnabhumi Airport dropped to number nine, while the Eiffel Tower dropped off the top-ten list altogether.

A mall replaces an airport as the top location!?!?!? Will wonders never cease?
