A picture of Will Smith and Justin Bieber was the most-liked Instagram photo of 2013


Folks, what you are looking at above was the most-liked Instagram photo of 2013. Is it any surprise that instead of artsy composition and striking subject matter it features two uber celebrities? The recipe for success if Justine Bieber and Will Smith bro-ing out (throw in a peace sign for good measure).

The photo’s status was revealed as part of Instagram’s yearly re-cap, which ranked #love as the hashtag of the year behind #selfie and #tbt and reconfirmed that Thanksgivukkah was one of the social network’s biggest days ever. Instagram also covered the top cities and locations of the year, which not surpassingly included Times Square, Disney World, and Las Vegas among others. The full list can be found over at Instagram’s blog (along with plenty of great shots to take a gander at).

Have a great shot from 2013 you want share? Drop it in the comments below!

      This is even worse than that time Kanye West became the biggest douchefag on the planet (in Peter’s voice and the FCC not making you change the dialogue).

  • Drew Fyock

    “Justine” – haha!

  • Tbone

    Seemed to have missed that picture. Thanks Phandroid for ruining the end of the year for me.

    ..thus confirming Instragram’s status as one of the top Douchestinations on the internet.

    This isn’t meant to be rude but how does this wrap into Android news?

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Instagram is an app for Android devices. Phandroid covers all things Android+mobile related. Was a fun post. *shrugs*

  • Chimphappyhour

    Idiocracy just got that much closer to being real.

    • Henri Conradie

      Now there just needs to be a tv show called “Ow, my *alls!” lololol

      • Chimphappyhour

        I thought MTV had that?

  • http://Phandroid Steven

    Really who on here gives a rat’s ass.
    How about some carrier holiday device sales going on now or early next week?
    Something worthwhile like the Note III, HTC ONE, GALAXY S IV.
    Don’t waste our time with the mini free 2yr contract crap either

    • No_Nickname90

      Would you really like to see another article about those phones? Because we haven’t seen like thousands of articles about the Note 3, HTC One, and GS4.

      I mean, what’s new in the Android world today? It’s pretty much a standstill now. The only thing they can show is what the ads on this site are already showing already. LoL!!

      I’m just waiting for that article about San Andreas being released. =.D

      • WhoaManWtF

        I would rather see anything Android related an app or game review… damn near anything tech related really even…

        • No_Nickname90

          This is about Instagram, an app. It’s talking about what was Instagrams most liked picture.

          What’s the problem?

          I’m not even being sarcastic, I really want to know what’s wrong with this article? Why is it not Android related if it’s about an Android app, which you said you would rather here about?

  • steveb944

    Come on PHANDROID. Fans of ANDROID. What the hell is this doing on my feed. I thought you guys were better than this.

    • No_Nickname90

      Calm down. There is nothing wrong with a little variety.

    • NinoBr0wn

      Better than..?

  • Dan

    The epitome of awesome and douchiness captured in the same pic.

    ps. I’ll let you guess which one Bieber is

    • NinoBr0wn

      Lol leave the little punk alone.

  • CallofDuVy

    Why is this on an Android related website?

    • Geek Man

      I guess, the Camera they used was an Android device.. lol

      • Del373

        Doubtful, knowing it’s Bieber they probably used an iPhone. :/

  • Subzer0

    “when little girls grow up and realize he was never cool” moment..

  • Morris

    Wtf? This does not belong on phandroid.

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Are you saying you aren’t a….. Belieber? O_o

      • No_Nickname90

        Calm down.

      • Fodografes

        Don’t mind him/her they have the …..Fever!

  • Morris

    I’m still mad get this crap off of here.

  • Hrethgir

    And crap like this is why I stay away from Instagram. Will Smith is cool, but Justin is ass, and there’s nothing special about that photo at all. Also, the stupid filters piss me off, why take a good picture and make it look like there’s something wrong with your camera?

  • guitarist5122

    Kevin Krause is trolling Phandroid again. Accept this time it isn’t with rubbing his Apple love in our face, it’s torturing us with a completely irrelevant article about a picture with a kid that is completely irrelevant (unless you’re a teenage girl).

    • No_Nickname90

      So does this mean there shouldn’t be any more app reviews on Phandroid? Hmm…

  • http://stevealbright.com Steve Albright

    I wonder where his other hand is?

    • Henri Conradie

      George Takei would say: “Oohh myy!”

  • Henri Conradie

    People are raging hard. I hope they realise Bieber is just another pop culture icon who will become less relevant in due time.

  • Henri Conradie

    Besides, Chris seems to be the most likely culprit to troll on Phandroid by creating something like this. Probably just for our benefit so that we know what’s popular. Now we can mock it. Problem, pop culture? ;D

    • No_Nickname90

      Trolling would have been talking about Rebecca Black’s new song, Saturday. LoL!!

      That ending though. =.3

      • Henri Conradie

        I haven’t even heard of it. No doubt that it would have made a trolltastic Phandroid article, haha.

        • No_Nickname90

          It’s funny. She starts off CLEARLY making a reference to her song Friday. LoL!!

          It’s some party song, so the music video is a party. They have this blow-up doll like floating around and I’m all like “Rebecca be gettin’ down like that!?” LoL!!

          • Henri Conradie

            Should screenshot and photoshop Krusty the Clown from the Simpsons into it. “Get down with the clown!” Lol.

  • Bob Meyer

    Just one more illustration of the collapse of western civilization.

    • lookatmyfunnyusername

      yes because two people posing for a pic is just the worst thing ever/

      • Bob Meyer

        No, because a totally trivial picture of two unimportant people was the most “liked” picture of the year. We’ve become a people that cares more about what Justin Beiber does than we do about truly important things.

        • lookatmyfunnyusername

          it’s instagram I don’t think people go on to learn things, I know I don’t, they go to look at pictures they like. Now the infatuation with celebrities and other vapid things is a problem but I’m sure it’s has been like that since the dawn of man. Genius is rarely ever appreciated in it’s lifetime outside of intellectual circles. All the the truly important things will be remembered. The important things of the past are remembered today because they affect our lives as will the important things of today be remembered.

    While most of you were commenting on how this isn’t android news, you failed to notice comedy gold ‘Justine’ ahahahah, good one.

  • socalrailroader

    That was actually a doctored photo, they added the pointing finger, the actual one just had the middle finger pointing at Justa boobie. :D
