Instagram also has a record of all the posts you “like” and you can access them.
The users that you follow or with whom you have had a conversation via Instagram direct message can see the last time you have connected to the application. This is common in messaging tools, and like most of them, we can also hide the last connection.
#11 Visualize our ancient stories
From our profile, we can access all the content that we have been uploading to our Instagram stories. It is a utility more nostalgic than helpful, and that not only shows us the video or photograph that we upload, but also the day.
Click on the clock that appears in the upper right corner of your profile.
#12 How to share publications in our stories
The queen of social networks has a thousand and one details that sometimes happen to us. This is one that many are unaware of despite being well visible in all our publications. With this simple advice, we can share any image, be it our or another user’s, in our stories. The people who follow us can click on the image from the story, and access the content directly. Useful, no? To do so, simply click on the paper plane icon underneath any photograph or video.
Paper airplane icon at the bottom of any publication -> Add publication to your story
#13 Pause Instagram stories
As you can see, sometimes they are small details that are overlooked when using Instagram. And this trick that we tell you now is probably known by most, but it’s good to remember.
When you are viewing a story, you can pause it to devote the time you want. Press on the content you want to see with confidence. If it’s a video, it will freeze, so this is more useful to use with those images that contain extensive messages.
#14 Hide your posts without deleting them
Sometimes we keep an eye on our profile and suddenly there is an image that does not fit us, has stopped us from liking or directly horrifies us. We never erase it because, however horrific it may seem, it is a memory that does not deserve to be eliminated. For this, Instagram has created the option to “Archive” those publications. This will allow us to save the content and that is hidden for users who enter our profile.
Click on the three points that appear on the right side of one of your publications -> click on “Archive”
If at any time you want to access all the archival publications, it is as simple as clicking on the icon in the form of a clock in the upper right corner of your profile. There we will find, not only all the stories that we have been uploading but also all the archived content
#15 Customize the biography of your profile
Our biography is our cover letter in the social network. It is a section that should not be dismissed because it can give a lot of itself. Instagram limits the personalization of the biographies, but this is not an impediment to using external tools that help us to enlarge our profile.
One of the biggest difficulties is that from Instagram we cannot use line breaks, so if we want to add a lot of information it will appear as a little differentiated text stain.
In order to personalize our biography, which included line breaks, we must use any notes tool. We will write the information that we want to appear, with icons and line breaks included, and we will paste them into our profile.
To paste them:
Edit profile -> Biography -> Paste the text -> Click on the save icon in the upper right corner.
#16 Clear search history
You delete our search history can be useful to do a reset of this tab, or simply to delete something that we do not want anyone to see.
Settings -> Search history -> Clear search history
#17 Reorder Instagram filters
This was a secret. If something we are realizing is that Instagram allows customizing the application to our liking, so much that you can order the filters. The social network organizes by default all the filters with which we can edit our images and videos, but what you surely did not know is that you can alter that order. And if you have a special hatred for someone, you can also hide it so it does not appear.
To place the filters to your liking, you must first select the content you want to upload. Click on “Next” to show the editing options and once here keep pressing on your favorites and put them at the beginning. You just have to hold and drag them to the position you want.
#18 Hide comments with keywords
Many haters for your profile? Better than to face them, obviate their existence. Instagram allows you to block comments from the keywords you decide. The platform will hide all those comments that contain the keyword you have chosen, will strike them from your profile
Access the Settings in your profile -> Comments controls -> Activate the manual filter -> write the words you do not want to read again.
#19 Save a photo in drafts
On many occasions, we leave a publication ready to see the light and at the last moment, we repent. Do we lose the whole edition? It is not necessary. At the moment of repentance, and from the options of editing the image, click on the icon that allows us to go backward in the edited one. The message “Save in drafts?” Will appear with which you can save that particular publication.
#20 Get statistics
Statistics are often interesting for companies that have an Instagram profile. With them, very interesting data are obtained to know if the communicative strategies are effective or not. It also allows us to know if our users are active, or on the contrary, they do not pay attention to our publications.
To obtain all this information that the platform provides you, you must go on to have a business profile, changing this option in the settings of your profile to “Change to company profile“.
Configuration -> Change to commercial account
#21 Disable comments in your posts
Instagram allows you to block comments so nobody can say anything about your posts. In the “Settings” section of your profile, you will manage to manage this section.
Access the Settings in your profile -> Comments controls -> Allow comments
#22 Useless data
Using Instagram away from home can quickly consume our data rate. So that this does not happen, the application allows activating the option “Use less data”, so that we save in this aspect. That yes, this can cause the photographies and videos to take more of the account in loading.
Settings -> Use of mobile data -> Use less data
And here’s this top of tricks for Instagram. We hope we have discovered some options that you thought were non-existent and that you can start using. You can already boast of being an expert managing this social network.
