The Bold Italics have created a handy Instagram infographic titled, ‘Game of Likes.’ The cheeky chart predicts how many likes each photo you post on the popular image-sharing network will get. Social media superstars and selfie queens everywhere must be rejoicing.

The chart is designed in a board game format. As players move through the board, they can collect ‘likes’ if they are applicable to their photo. At the start, each player is awarded several free likes from their “family, friends, stalkers and frenemies.” Other popular like-guarantees are food porn, DIY (art, meals, babies), excessive hashtags, travel photos, nature and landmarks. Unfortunately, shirtless mirror pics will cost you some likes; the game advises you go directly to Tinder instead.

Once you tally all the likes you have accumulated, you’ll have an estimated total of the likes your photo is worth.
