Instagram: Everything you need to know!

Instagram: Everything you need to know!

Instagram is a social media app that allows users to share photos and videos from their lives, add captions, edit filters, tweak settings, engage with others, explore and creep, and so, so much more — you just have to know what you’re doing so you don’t get overwhelmed!

July 2, 2018 – Instagram is testing out a question-asking feature in Stories

Instagram Stories are a great way to get feedback from your followers. With the poll sticker and emoji slider sticker, users can find out what their fans really think about…well, anything! I’ve seen individuals ask their followers for opinions about which of two haircuts to get, which of two product color schemes to go forward with, and even how much they loved the finale of [insert preferred TV show here]. However, sometimes you need more details than tapping one of two pre-selected options or sliding a dot all the way to  provides. What if you’re an artist looking for suggestions on what to draw? Or what if you want to know why fruitbabe91 thinks you’d look hot with a hipster mullet?

You may be in luck. According to a report by Richard Gao over at Android Police, it seems that in addition to IGTV and the multitude of other new stuff Instagram has been rolling out recently, the social media platform is testing a feature that allows you to ask your followers questions in Stories. With this feature, your question will appear in a little rectangular sticker in your story, followed by a text box that your followers can fill to their heart’s content, whether they’re providing some insight about a book you’re considering reading or roasting you into oblivion. It seems like it could be a great way to get the info you’re interested in without everyone and their brother clogging your inbox with DMs, though we can’t yet verify whether the responses get sent via DM anyway or if, like with polls, they remain a part of the Story.

Though not everyone is seeing this feature pop up within the app, users from Spain to Indonesia (pictured above) have spotted it and have been able to test it out. The feature also hasn’t been confirmed by Instagram as of this post, but we’ll likely be seeing something about it very soon.

May 22, 2018 – #HALLELUJAH: Instagram finally adds a Mute button

Have you ever been super annoyed with someone on your Instagram feed, but you don’t want to unfollow them at the risk of ruining your friendship/relationship? Then you’re going to be incredibly happy to hear about Instagram’s new Mute button.

If you didn’t already know, you can already mute Instagram Stories by pressing and holding them and then tapping the mute option, but Muting entire profiles and posts is an entirely new feature.

Instagram said that it added this feature to make your feed more personalized, but it acknowledges there was clearly user demand. “We’ve also heard it may be a useful tool for managing complex social dynamics,” said a rep for the company. (BuzzFeed)

You can mute someones profile by tapping on the three dots in the upper left of their post and tapping the mute option.
May 22, 2018 – ‘You’re All Caught Up’ — Instagram now lets you know when you’ve scrolled through all your daily posts
Ever since Instagram broke its chronological timeline and opted for this… random nonsense that we experience every day (I could use stronger words, but I wont), it’s tough to distinguish what you’ve scrolled passed and which post is new and certified fresh.

Sometimes you can get into what I like to call a Scroll Hole that keeps you trapped in your social media bubble, constantly liking posts you’ve already double-tapped while slowly going insane every time you refresh the app.

Now Instagram has introduced a new feature that lets you know when you’ve scrolled through everything once aka the ‘You’re all Caught Up’ feature.

But when will it appear on your Insta? Probably not any time soon…. Read More>>
