YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. It was founded by Steve Chen, Chad Hurley and Jawed Karim in February 2005, and the first video was “Me at the zoo” uploaded by Karim on his channel in April 2005. Although the most-viewed videos were initially viral videos, such as “Evolution of Dance” and “Charlie Bit My Finger”, the most-viewed videos were increasingly related to music videos. In fact, since Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”, every video that has reached the top of the “most-viewed YouTube videos” list has been a music video. Although some of the previously most-viewed videos are no longer listed on the site, reaching the top of the list is still considered a tremendous feat.
In November 2005, a Nike advertisement featuring Brazilian football player Ronaldinho became the first video to reach one million views

This list contains the top 20 posts with the most likes on the photo and video-sharing social networking service Instagram. The most-liked post on Instagram is a photo of an egg, which has been liked by over 54.3 million different accounts as of March 2020. The post is also the most-liked internet post of all time of any website. The like function has been removed in certain countries such as Canada and Australia in a trial to reduce the negative effects of “competition” on the platform.

The following table lists the top 20 most-liked posts on Instagram.

Two accounts have more than one of the most-liked posts in the top 20: Kylie Jenner has seven, and Selena Gomez has two.
