We've all got our fave emojis that we use like, every time. But what are the most popular emojis on Instagram? And do you agree with some of these? There's a lot of love and smiles in the top 10, surprisingly.

With the ability to hashtag emojis on Instagram now, online marketing and analytics firm Curalate was able to easily see which emojis were most used on the social media platform. Here's how things shake out since the hashtag feature first was available on April 27th, with usage through May 27th.

Would you believe the red heart was the most popular emoji? The heart shaped eyes face and the winky kissy face came in second and third, respectively, with a range of happy, winky and laughing faces making the top tier. More hearts, lips and a big thumbs up rounded out the top 10.

Check out the rest of the "Top 100 Emojis on Instagram" for the hashtag analysis and see where your favorites landed.

We're surprised to see smiling poo land so far down the list, tbh.
