2017 was the year of family and relationships. If 2016’s top-liked list featured snaps of career achievement and brand partnerships, most of the top-10 most liked Instagram pictures of 2017, except for two, portray intimate moments of affection and announcements of new family members.
One thing hasn’t changed much: Selena Gomez still is a strong chart-topper. Even though, she is not the star of the show of this year’s list, she has four of the top ten spots.

3rd Most- Liked: Selena – Thank-you picture to Francia Raisa- her organ donor and best friend
I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
