At New Year's Eve, everybody's Instagram feeds are filled with only one thing – the top nine grids of their most liked photographs from the year. However, to get this grid in place, every Instagram user will be turning to shady third-party apps and websites. This is the third year in a row when a trend has reemerged, but bafflingly, Instagram has not found an automated way to curate the top nine images within the app.
Suppose you're an active user of social media. In that case, it's impossible that you don't participate in this trend, after all, isn't it an unspoken rule to join every bandwagon that materializes on the internet? And just think about it, this trend is much better than the other trends that we often find ourselves exposed to. It's actually a wholesome way to take time and look back to our past.
The emotions caused by this casual and brief regression vary – some feel elevated and pleased by the throwback of productive days and major milestones meanwhile others may feel overwhelmed with grief and sadness due to the remembrance of a lost one of failed opportunity.
The point here is that Instagram users enjoy putting together the collages of their best posts. The portal already offers grid tools for Stories along with carried layouts. As a matter of fact, it does have access to data.
In comparison, the latest Spotify trend has gauged our attention – it dominated the entire month of December as users continued to show off their most streamed songs of the year along with other statistics. Instagram must take notice of this and compete by allowing users to show off their music palate through Stories.
While discussing Instagram competitors, how can we forget its alibi, Facebook? Facebook is actually known for utilizing the algorithms to compile year-in-a-review videos for its users. So, we wonder why Instagram has not elevated its game, because clearly, the automating option of "top nine" posts is a no-brainer.
Since the trend is not slowing down after everyone is recharged after December global holidays, third-party apps are skyrocketing on the app store charts. Usually, these apps or services demand personal information, like an email address. Sometimes, these sites even demand on plastering the images with hideous logos and watermarks.
Come to think of it – It really shouldn't be a big deal for Instagram to organize and smoothen this process and fix the problems faced while using third-party apps. Perhaps, next year?
Anyway, if your Instagram is flooded with Top 9 images and you wish to indulge and share your Instagram Top 9 posts, we've got some ideas for you.

"Another important factor was that many clones claiming to be the original Top Nine were posing a security and privacy risk, unknowingly using a fake tool thinking it's our Top Nine tool."
The website also highlights the issues that have emerged due to bogus websites.
"We receive messages from people saying that after they used our app, their Instagram account username has been "hacked", deleted, or modified. In fact, they were unknowingly using a fake tool, thinking it's our Top Nine tool. That's one of the reasons why we chose to make it under the CreatorKit platform, on CreatorKit.com/TopNine."
Hence, the idea is to enjoy all these amazing social media trends without compromising personal information or falling prey to hacking and other dangers.
