How to get your Instagram Top 9
How to get your Instagram, It’s an honored tradition, even if so many of our pics this year were taken inside our homes during quarantine. In the olden days, people used to screenshot this report and post it to their actual grids. These days, that’s unheard of, but you’ll definitely see them on everyone’s Instagram Stories. Here’s how you can get in on the action.
1. Pick a website
There are two main services that’ll pull your nine most-liked posts together for you: Top Nine and Best Nine. They’re very similar to each other, but there are a couple of key differences.
Top Nine functions as both a website and an app. If you choose the app route, you can actually opt out of handing over your email address in the process, whereas the desktop version doesn’t allow this. It can also search both private and public accounts. Best Nine doesn’t ask for an email at all, but it does seem to run quite a bit slower than Top Nine, and it can only search public accounts. Both promise not to sell your data to any third parties within their privacy policies.
2. Input your handle
Like I mentioned earlier, the different apps will ask for different things, but your handle is essential information. Top Nine will also reroute you the 2020 edition (now part of CreatorKit, which houses video and design tools for social media) from the main website if you’re using the browser version, so make sure you’re in the right place.
3. Literally just wait
The sites will do the work for you, it’s just a matter of how long you want to wait. Top Nine’s browser version told me to download the app for the process to take just “seconds, rather than minutes,” but since I gave it my email, it actually also emailed my top nine to me upon completion, so I didn’t have to sit on the site.
Best Nine’s disclaimer warned me it could take up to 10 minutes, but from personal experience, it seems to take even longer. I have no patience, so I will personally be skedaddling right on over to Top Nine.
