Instagram Update: Useful features
1️⃣ Hidden Likes
You may have heard the news, or this change may have already happened to your account, but Instagram is testing removing the amount of likes your posts get.
2️⃣ Dark Mode
You can enable/disable Instagram dark mode. Users with operating systems iOS 13 and Android 10 will be experiencing a darker version of Instagram.
3️⃣ Removing Followers
Bots and fake accounts can follow your page. These “ghost followers” never like or comment on your posts and when we have a lot of these followers - our audience isn’t engaging, Instagram think our content isn’t very good and it will limit the amount of people that see it! So you can easily remove them.
4️⃣ Following Categories & Filtering Options
This new Instagram update makes it easier to manage your following and keep tabs on who you interact with the most and least! If you navigate to the list of people you’re following, you’ll now notice some new additions: two different categories: ‘Least Interacted With’ and ‘Most Shown in Feed’ and a small two way arrow icon that allows you to sort your following by ‘Earliest Followed’ and ‘Latest Followed’
5️⃣ Stories ‘Create’ Interface
You can now add Gifs, Countdown Timers, Quizzes, Polls and Q&A boxes with a simple swipe of the finger.
6️⃣ The Arrow Pen in Stories
One of the best ways to get users to take action within your stories is to draw arrows to areas of interest: go to in drawing tools, draw a line – you’ll notice Instagram automatically adds an arrow to the end of any line.
7️⃣ Post to Multiple Accounts
Now it doesn’t matter which account you’re logged in to because you can easily toggle the account you want your post to publish to.
8️⃣ Uploading Multiple Images & Video to Stories
Now you can upload multiple photos and videos to your stories at the same time.
9️⃣ IGTV & Live
You can upload more that 60 seconds long videos in Instagram TV. Also you can’t save your live video in Stories for 24 hours anymore, but you save it to IGTV forever.
