Although you may have been using Instagram for a number of years and continue to do so on a daily basis, it is likely that there are a number of different functions and features on the app that you are unaware of. We have listed some of these below for you.

See what posts you’ve liked

If you want to go back in time and take a look at all of the posts that you have ever liked before, this can be done by pressing the “hamburger” menu. From there go to Settings, then Account, then press Posts You’ve Liked.

Manage several accounts from a single device

With the app, you are able to manage as many as 5 different Instagram accounts from your smartphone. This is a useful feature for any social media managers out there that have multiple accounts to run all at the same time. To add an account, press the gear icon (Settings) and go all the way down to the bottom and press Add Account. From there you will be sent to a login page where you can login to and add another account.

Add breaks in your bio

In order to better explain what you and your brand are about, you can use separate lines in your bio. However, the process of doing this is not that straightforward. To get around this, write the bio out in a notes application on your smartphone, with the line breaks that you want, and then copy and paste it into the bio section.

Tag other accounts in your bio

When tagging the profiles of other Instagram accounts on your own bio, they automatically become clickable. This, therefore, acts as the perfect place to promote any other accounts, such as sister companies, that you may have on the platform.

Change alignment of your bio

To really stand out from the rest of the accounts on Instagram, you can change the alignment of your bio from the standard left-aligned to either centre or right aligned instead. There are pieces of code that you can download online to do this. Once copied, the code can then be pasted into your bio.

Put keywords in your profile name

So that your account becomes more visible when searched for, you are able to add keywords to your username. This is because rather than names, sometimes users on Instagram search for certain specific words that are related to the industry or product/service.
