It’s Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ world – and we’re just living in it. Online, that is.

We don’t know how either star finds the time to maintain a thriving movie career seeing as how they flirt with each other non-stop on social media. For example, on Monday, the Age of Adaline actress posted a very sexy, very shirtless picture of her husband to her 2.4 Instagram million followers.

So we take a look at the married couple’s best social moments, while deciding: Who’s better at the Internet?

ROUND ONE: LIVELY

Huh?? On March 4, Lively Tweeted envelope emoji, poop emoji and envelope emoji (again) at her husband, managing to make feces seem adorable (for the first time ever?) as the whole world tried to guess what the secret married-couple message meant. The symbols are likely an inside joke between the two of them, but Lively is 100 percent calling the shots here: The Tweet received 800 re-Tweets and more than 1,828 favorites.

ROUND TWO: LIVELY

On April 4, Lively took a jab at her husband’s ogling eyes for his Woman in Gold costar, Helen Mirren, with this Instagram pic, captioned as such: “Should I be concerned that my husband’s never looked at me this way? #WhereAreThoseEyesWanderingReynolds #HelenMirrenIStheSexiestWomanAlive #WomaninGold.” The picture’s ‘like’ count just surpassed 193,000.

ROUND THREE: REYNOLDS

We present this April 16 Twitter pic of Reynolds as a child without comment. The photo (and his brief caption) already speak volumes.

ROUND FOUR: REYNOLDS

The Green Lantern star’s retaliation took two weeks, but definitely packed a punch, as he humorously responded to a Lionsgate Tweet that had called Lively and her Age of Adaline costar Michiel Huisman a “perfect pair.” “Uh I can HEAR you,” her adorably jealous husband Tweeted, racking up more than 2,700 retweets and 6,000 favorites.

ROUND FIVE: LIVELY

The steamy pic of Reynolds that Lively posted on her Instagram had the following text: “Studies show that if you are afraid of spiders you are more likely to find one in your bedroom. I am afraid of Ryan Reynolds ” The post has received more than 199,000 likes (and counting).

GRAND TOTAL – LIVELY: 3. REYNOLDS: 2.
Analysis: While both contenders are highly adept at social media, Lively ultimately pulls ahead with her frequent Instagram usage (Reynolds has yet to create an account), secret poop emoji messages and steady stream of cutesy jabs at her husband.

In conclusion Ryan Reynolds, please get an Instagram?
