Instagram’s biggest trends of 2017

Instagram has released its 2017 Year in Review and it's no surprise who takes the top spots. 

Selena Gomez (130m+ Followers), Christiano Ronaldo (116m+ Followers), Ariana Grande (115m+ Followers), Beyonce (108m+ Followers) and Kim Kardashian-West (104m+ Followers) take out the top five most followed celebrities. 

While #love, #fashion and #photooftheday have proven to be the most popular hashtags throughout the year. 

The most followed celebrities also took out the most liked photos of the year, with Beyonce's stunning pregnancy announcement becoming the biggest moment of the year.

That was closely followed by the birth of Christiano Ronaldo's twins and the revelation that Gomez has been fighting autoimmune disease Lupus. 

10,315,380 people liked Gomez's photo which shows her lying in a hospital bed holding hands with close friend Francia Raisa who donated her kidney. 

Unfortunately New Zealand did not make the top ten for the most instagrammed cities or locations. 

New York, Moscow and London were the most instagrammed cities, while Disneyland Los Angeles, New York's Time Square and Central Park took out the most instagrammed locations. 

Social media presenter Shannon Redstall spoke to Duncan Garner.
