In Instagram, it has been observed that certain types of photos or images get liked and shared more than others. It goes without saying that amazing photos will always get more attention. An image of the Himalayan landscape will always be a crowd puller in comparison with an image of a spoon, unless there is something magical about the spoon which is clearly obvious in the image.
