It’s New Year’s Eve, which means your Instagram feed – if it’s like me – is probably full of people posting »The top nine« One of their most liked photos this year. But bafflingly, for another year, everyone will be turning to superficial-looking third-party apps and sites to create. Because again, Instagram has failed to offer an official and automatic way to take care of photos within the app. »
As someone who personally enjoys using the nine best formats for a look at a year of good baked photos, I was left in awe over this. Users seem Love Assemble your collages for a look at last year of posts. Instagram has already introduced network tools to post photos to your story in various layouts. And lo and behold Certainly He has access to the data.
Just look at the popularity Spotify’s Wrapped in Review feature, Which dominated the month of December as users viewed the most streamed songs, genres, and stats. Instagram should be aware of the trend – Instagram stories are one of the most popular places users review their taste for music.

However, it looks like 2020 will end with Instagram dropping the ball on this seemingly obvious feature. I think there is always 2021.
