NPR's Top Instagram Posts of 2017

This year brought a wide range of news events and NPR's Instagram audience responded. With a mix of still images and videos, we gained about 350,000 new followers and surpassed our engagement goals in 2017.

Our Instagram philosophy is to share a mix of NPR stories from a variety of topics each day. Breaking news and politics led the top 10 posts of the year but our audience also gravitated to features including baby boxes, a favorite dish from Iran and a lesson on Native American treaties.

The top overall post was from early 2017, showing the Women's March on Washington following President Trump's inauguration ceremony. The rest of the top 10 are seen in chronological order, highlighting different news events throughout the year.
