Jennifer Aniston's first Instagram post has amassed 15,362,714 likes (as of this writing) since she became one of the platform's newest—and most famous—members less than two months ago. There was such instant frenzy over her inaugural post—a simple selfie of her smiling with her Friends co-stars—that it overwhelmed even the site

As Instagram told E! News at the time, they were "aware that some people are having issues following Jen's profile — the volume of interest is incredible! We are actively working on a solution and hope to have it up and running smoothly again shortly."

"I swear I didn't mean to break it," Aniston's second post read, cleverly featuring a clip of her Morning Show character hurling her phone into a drawer. "Thank you guys for the kind, glitchy welcome."

Just like that, the beloved actress was reborn a social media star in the increasingly vast digital universe, where Hollywood has become a massive planet. 

There was no greater display of social media's orbit of Tinseltown than in 2019, where Instagram posts and tweets served as the instant gateway to baby announcements and split confirmations, engagement ring glamour shots and first-hand feud accounts. It was the place where stars announced new endeavors, poked funsquashed romance rumorsturned up the flirting and fiercely fought—all 21st century style. 

As the new year swiftly approaches, carrying along with it a brand new decade, here's a proper goodbye to the most memorable social media posts of 2019. While we may be leaving these posts behind—and the millions more that took up our screen space this year—as everyone well knows by now, they'll live forever on the Internet.
