No matter how much you’ve used Instagram, there’s always a new trick to learn. So, we’ve gathered a few of the lesser-known Instagram hacks to help you make the most of the app. Have you ever been in a social media brainstorm,
and … if only you could pull up that social video you saw last night. It would be the perfect example to kick things off. Turns out, if you’ve liked it, you can. Just go to your profile and click the “Options” button. Then, select “Posts You’ve Liked.” The bigger your following gets, the more people will tag you in their posts. You can find all of these under the “Photos of You” tab on your profile. If there’s any you want removed, tap the three dots, choose “Hide Photos,” and check the posts one-by-one. If you’re like me, you have one filter you use all the time. Good news — you can reorder the filters so your favorite is front and center. Start by uploading a photo. When it’s time to add a filter, scroll all the way to the right and tap “Manage.” Hold and drag on the three gray lines to move a filter. Hit the white check mark to hide any you don’t want to use. Speaking of filters, did you know that warm filters get more engagement than those that highlight cool tones? Test me on it. Try out Lark, Mayfair, or Rise on your next post. I’ll admit, this next Instagram hack is simple, but it took me awhile to get. I wanted to insert a line break to separate my caption from my hashtags, but the return button was missing. All you have to do is tap the 123 button to bring back the “return” key. You could also put those extra hashtags in the first comment of your post to keep things uncluttered. Finally, let’s deal with one of the biggest Instagram frustrations: linking to an external site. While you can’t link in your posts, you can update the link in your bio as often as you want. Use your captions to encourage people to “click” the updated link in your bio. That’s a wrap. Let us know any tricks we might have missed in the comments.
