Sorry, Kylie Jenner.
The internet can be a funny and weird place, with records and feats that can be achieved by nearly anyone. Take the case for Instagram – before today, the most liked image on the social media platform was Kylie Jenner’s post about her daughter. That image alone has more than 18.1 million likes.
But that has now been dethroned by an image of an egg – yes, the most liked Instagram image of all time is an egg – currently with 23.4 million likes as of this writing.
The image was originally posted on January 5th, with a caption that jokingly said: “Let’s set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram…” While it was clearly intended as a joke, the image was then liked and shared which ultimately became the most liked image on Instagram.
But why an egg? No explanation was given, though it does shed light on how easily you can get your 15 minutes of fame on social media.
