2019 was, to say the least, an eventful year, it thus follows that the most popular posts of 2019 in India would be all about these events that made the year such a memorable one. Want to up your social game and drive up the likes?
As we start 2020, let’s take a closer look at the posts that made it to the top 10 in 2019.
Since India is the largest market for YouTube globally, let’s start with YouTube. Video consumption has only gone up in this country since the advent of cheap 4G thanks to Jio. So without further ado, let’s look at the top 10 posts for the year 2019 - ranked according to engagement.
Just a quick note - I’ve excluded all posts that are affiliated with politics.
