The world of social media has recently been taken by storm as Instagram users have united to make a post of an egg the most liked post on the platform.

As Kylie Jenner recently held the record for the most liked post after the birth of her daughter, Stormi Webster, she has been one-upped by Instagram account ‘world_record_egg’. In early January the account posted a simple photo of an egg captioned, “Let’s set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram. Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this.” The post currently has 50,916,327, almost 3 million comments, and the account itself currently maintains approximately 8.9 million followers. Although the post of the egg had surpassed Jenner’s 18,697,985 likes and over 2 million comments, Jenner remains ahead with her 125 million followers.

The power of social media was demonstrated when this simple trend brought millions of people together to work towards a single goal.
