This week, Instagram released the numbers for some of the year’s most popular accounts as part of its “2017 Year in Review.” The social media platform included numbers on the most popular designers, hashtags, models and celebrities, with categories based on both the total number of followers and the general activity around the accounts.
While no one beat Chanel when it comes to the number of followers, Dior, Hermès and Louis Vuitton received the most social media attention in 2017. This ranking was calculated using both the amount of new followers gained and the activity around the account, which includes comments, tags and likes.
