Did You Know You Can Do These Four Things With Your Instagram?

Written by Jimmy Rustling

Instagram is one of the biggest social media platforms. Within the first month of creation, it gained 1 million active users, and within the first year, that number soared to 10 million. Now, there are 1.44 billion monthly active users sharing content almost daily. It birthed influencers, a massive brand promotion platform, and a space for people to connect and share their lives with other people. Yet, there are so many features that people don’t use that could enhance the user experience. Below, we’ll explore four that you might not know about.

Bookmarking Posts

Instagram’s bookmark feature allows you to save posts you like so you can revisit them later. To use this feature, all you need to do is tap the bookmark icon on the one you want to save, and you’ll find it added to your saved posts. You can access your saved posts by tapping the profile icon and selecting the bookmark icon.

Story Archive

Instagram’s story archive feature automatically saves all your stories for you to revisit later. To access your story archive, go to your profile and tap on the clock icon. From there, you can view all your past stories and even repost them as new stories. Similarly, you can archive every picture or video you’ve ever uploaded and add them again to your page whenever you want.

That is an excellent feature if you want to store content without people seeing it – perhaps you have photos you don’t necessarily want people to see: but don’t want to lose. What’s even better, you can then delve into that archive and look at, a platform that allows you to make photo books from all the photos you have on social media in one beautiful book.

Close Friends List

The close friend feature allows you to create a list of people you want to share your stories with. This feature is great for sharing more personal or private moments with a select group of people. To create a close friends list, go to your profile, tap on the three horizontal lines in the top right corner, select “Close Friends,” and then add the people you want to include.

Activity Status

Instagram’s activity status feature lets you see when your friends are active on the app. This feature is useful for knowing when it’s a good time to message someone. Sometimes you don’t want others to see when you’re active – you can turn off your activity status by going to your profile, tapping on the three horizontal lines in the top right corner, selecting the settings option, Privacy, and then Activity Status.

Instagram is one of the best platforms you can use. It allows you to share special moments with people closest to you, it’s educational and hilarious, and the app is constantly evolving to make the user experience one of the best. The more time you spend on it, the more you will discover. Whether you use it for business or personal, everyone can get more out of their Instagram account.
