In this digital age, the end of the year remains a prime time to reflect – only now can we get virtual help to help us think about what the best parts have been over the past 12 months

The Instagram Top 9 is perhaps the best-known end-of-year tradition where people use technology to see which of their Instagram posts got the most likes in the past year and then share that data in a grid format

While posting report screenshots on Insta profile is an outdated practice from “the old days,” as Mashable puts it, many of them have still been posted on Instagram Stories in the past few days of the past few years

Would you like to know how to make your own top 9? Here’s how to do this before we usher in the new year

These two free websites are solely for the purpose of identifying and formatting your most popular posts. Top Nine is available as both a website and an app, with the latter not requiring an email address, and Best Nine – this for public accounts only can be used – is just a website and works much slower (“Please note that due to high demand, your request now takes about 10 minutes to process,” warns the website).

Top Nine has a “Save & Share” button that makes it easy for you to post the grid-based report to your Instagram story, and if you’d rather upload it manually, just save the picture to your phone’s camera roll or take a screenshot of it Then open Instagram and upload the picture to a story

Voila! While 2020 was probably not the most photogenic year in the memory for many, we made it and it’s still worth remembering the highlights (and maybe leaving the lowlights behind)
