1 76

In just the past 3 months, Instagram has introduced a lot of new features. It can get hard to keep up, but they are some hidden Instagram features that you need to start using. They’re all really easy to use, and with some consistency, you can benefit from them.

Instagram Saved Collection Folders

The first one that I’d like to highlight is “Saved” collections. With this feature, you can collect any photo from Instagram and put them folders. You can customize and organize the folders however you’d like. These collections will help you stay organized and manage content in a whole new way!

The best use of this feature would be to place photos together by category. That way your saved content will be easier to refer back to for future reference. You could also use this to categorize posts by certain Instagram users whether that be influencers, bloggers or personal friends. This is also a good way to keep track of any collaborations you may have with certain pages on their posts. 

To use this feature, tap the bookmark icon under an Instagram post, and hold it. The options to save the photo in a collection will come up. Here, you can add it to an existing collection or make a new one. These collections are private for only you to see.

I like to place photos together by category. I made a folder with food and travel. In “food” I’ll place all photos that either has mouthwatering footage, my favorite foods or future recipes. In “travel” I’ll put photos of places I’d like to visit someday or posts of places I’ve visited in the past. 

The best part, you don’t have to use a third-party app! It’s all on Instagram. This way you can look back on posts whenever you’d like. This is a great way to store amazing memories for future reference. You could also keep entertaining fail videos or inspirational content in one place. To use this feature, tap the bookmark icon under an Instagram post, and hold it. The options to save the photo in a collection will come up. Here, you can add it to an existing collection or make a new one. These collections are private for only you to see.
