Instagaram users can revisit their best photos of 2017 and share these with friends in the form of a collage. A tool called 2017 Best Nine will let people select the nine best pictures of the year 2017 and form a three by three collage. To use the tool, the Instagram profile must be set to ‘Public’ and not ‘Private’. Once the collage is created, users can change profile privacy settings back to ‘Private’, if they prefer this.
The 2017 Best Nine tool is not integrated into Instagram, and users will need to head to 2017bestnine.com to get started. Next, a user will have to enter their Instagram ID and hit enter. The tool can take up to 10 minutes to create a collage of nine of their best pictures of 2017, based on the number of likes. There’s no need to log into the Instagram account on this thirty party website as only the ID name is required.
The 2017 Best Nine tool also shows a user the number of the photos they posted in 2017, and the total number of likes these pictures received on the social media site. Users have the option of replacing pictures generated by the tool with the ones they prefer. The collage comes with a header that reads, “#2017bestnine” while the caption reads, “Thank you for your likes!”
