Our 10 Favorite Instagram Posts This Past Year

Cue reminiscent thoughts.

Well, there you have it. Another year of never-ending contributions to the bottomless well of photos and videos that make up what is our beloved Instagram.

Whether you love it or hate it, social media has become somewhat of an integral part of our everyday lives. The platform serves as a conduit for some of the best, worst, funniest, gnarliest, most diverse content from all over the world, with its proliferation fueled by … us.

While we don’t know the trajectory of social media and its involvement in our everyday lives, we do know what was trending from our page during 2017. Here are your top 10 performers from @GrindTV‘s Instagram in the last year.
