Kim Kardashian West Is Only the Fifth Most Followed Celeb of 2017

Embarrassing fact: I never made it past precalculus in math. After graduating high school, I vowed never to take another math course, and I didn't. I hate math, but I love numbers and analytics—which is probably why I now work in digital media.

This morning, Instagram released the mother lode of analytics: their 2017 Year In Review, which looks at all the most mind-blowing data gathered from the app (like, eight of the ten most viewed videos of the year came from two soccer players) and helps us all see just how much of an influence the app plays in our everyday lives.
