I’m not sure how exactly it happened, but Instagram has slowly but surely become our society’s official indicator of popularity. If you want to be a so-called “influencer”, you need people – lots of people – to like your stuff on Instagram.
To show you how it’s done, let’s take a look at the 15 most liked photos on Instagram.
Ronaldo With Family
That’s 11,3 million likes for someone’s family picture. Weird how internet works.

This list is going to have more Cristiano Ronaldo in it than the Ballon d’Or recent winners, isn’t it? 11,7 million likes for this picture.
Kylie Jenner and Daughter Continued
11,9 likes this time. Must be a better angle.
