best nine is a popular aggregation and summary post practice on Instagram, supported by services like https://2017bestnine.com/ (archived, now taken over) which only ask you for your username then return a 3x3 grid of your 9 most liked photos of the year, a photo-specific Year in Review.

To use it you must have support for:
- Year in Review
- Brainstorming: It should be possible to build an indieweb version into your own site, or even a service that asked for an indieweb site URL, checked all photo posts from the past year, created a grid of the top 9 posts by number of likes. Advantage: more total likes from backfeeds and indieweb sites. Extra credit: detect if site delegates webmention receiving to webmention.io or herokuapp, call its API for likes
