As the end of the year approaches, it's time for throwback posts and lists of 2016, and one of the first few brands who have started releasing these is Instagram. Not too surprising since the photo sharing app has been quite competitive with fellow popular social media app Snapchat.
Over the weekend, they've announced the figures for the most-followed Instagram accounts of 2016 to reveal both surprising and obvious finds. For example, our previous Muse of the Month Selena Gomez is the most followed person with 103 million followers after experiencing the largest audience growth this year—50 million followers. Not to mention, she also holds an astounding eight of the 10 most-liked photos of 2016. It also turns out that women dominate the Top 10 ranking with only Cristiano Ronaldo (No. 6) and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (No. 8) making it to the list.
