    Hawk-eyed social media users were quick to spot the difference between the record-breaking picture and the new image, and are now wondering what this tiny crack might eventually lead to.

    About two weeks after posting a photo of an egg which recently became the most-liked Instagram post, the @world_record_egg account released a nearly identical photo, and it seems people dig it as well.

    The new picture, which features an egg with a slightly cracked shell, has already accrued over 4.6 million “likes”, about 14 hours after it was posted.

    The image also sparked a flurry of activity on social media, with people wondering what it could mean.

    The original egg photo was posted on 4 January, with the account’s owner urging the audience to help them “set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram”.

    This undertaking proved to be a huge success, with the image accruing over 49 million likes by 19 January, vastly surpassing the amount of “likes” amassed by the previous record holder Kylie Jenner.
