New Instagram Features you SHOULD Know



Hi Business & Social Media Lovers

Did you know that Instagram made some changes recently?? Like real recently, last night recently!!!! Well if you didn’t know I am glad you stopped on the blog so that I can update you on the Instagram world.

Before I tell you the hottest two features recently released on Instagram, I do want to say that I PRAY Instagram will not be the new Facebook (I know they are owned by Facebook) and have updates EVERY DAY!! Although most Facebook updates are for the better it is very annoying when you have to redo all of your curriculum almost every week because of their constant changes.

End Vent! Lol


Now back to the new updates that I actually have to say I love.

New Feature #1You can link multiple accounts without logging out

When they released this feature a few weeks ago I felt like God answered one of my prayers. As a Social Media Strategist I have tons of accounts that I managed and it was so time consuming and ANNOYING when I had to logout and log in just to post one simple picture or comment or respond to a comment. Tip: Be very careful with this feature. You always want to make sure you check to ensure you are posting under the right account.

To add additional accounts, you must go to your profile page, click on the settings and scroll to the bottom and click add accounts. Once you added the account you can switch accounts two ways, by clicking the profile name on your profile page or holding the picture at the bottom right hand corner!

FYI: You can add up to 5 accounts.

New Feature #2Video View count

This literally happen yesterday; Instagram allows you to see how many people viewed your videos you posted. I personally like this feature because you are able to get better analytics and see what content is working better when it comes to pictures vs. videos.

    Thanks so much for the updates on these features Dr. Lucas! I think the multiple account option is indeed a dream come true for social managers. I only have my one account so I really did not think about this before now. Regarding the second update, this seems like a no brainier. Online short form and live video is the reninassance of social media right now so it’s interesting how we are developing the applications faster than the tools like this to support and track the effectiveness. I don’t think Instagram is in any danger of becoming like Facebook so no worries there.

    Have you heard about IG switching to most relevant posts in users’ feeds vs. Chronological posting? I’m kindof concerned about this, but should I be?
