It’s hard to miss all of the year end stories on the web this time of year, and it’s no different on Instagram where nearly 40,000 users have been using Statigr.am to create short videos of their best photos from 2013. To get started, visit Statigr.am and connect your photo account. The video tool digs up your five best photos from the year and turns it into a simple slideshow. Due to the site’s popularity, you might experience a delay in getting your video.

If you want more than five images, try using Everlapse, which is a flipbook tool for your top 20 images. Users on Twitter also have a highlights reel feature, it’s FollowMe from Vizify, a more elaborate video editor with more music options and stats of your Twitter history. Users on Google Plus don’t have to do much of anything, the social networks have automated videos of the year in review available to all users.
