Instagram and its many filters may be responsible for the wave of faux nostalgia, but now that the year's winding down, it's time for some actual nostalgia.

The most unsurprising bit is, perhaps, the fact that Justin Bieber has been named the proud owner of the number one most liked Instagram photo. Here is his masterpiece in all its glory:

Other top dogs include #love as the number one most used hashtag (although #selfie and #tbt aren't too far behind) and Thanksgiving/the first day of Hannukah—because Thanksgiving ain't Thanksgiving until your Turkey's in black and white.
