A new TikTok and Twitter trend is seeing people find the first photo they ever liked on Instagram and sharing it with their followers in videos that are garnering thousands of views. Here’s how to check yours.
While TikTok is now the center of viral culture online, Instagram was once perhaps the most popular social media platform out there, and many have had the same account for years, even dating back to when they were teenagers.
Now, a new trend on TikTok and Twitter is prompting people to find the first post that they ever liked on the platform, and share the results (no matter how embarrassing) with their followers.
