Use post notifications to stay in the loop with your favorite posters. Enabling post notifications will ensure that you never miss a post from a user. You can enable these on a user-by-user basis so that you can customize who you get them from.
Follow the user you want to receive post notifications for. You can be notified every time a specific user makes a new post as long as you are following them. If you aren't following the user first, you'll receive an error when trying to turn on post notifications.
- To follow someone, open their Instagram profile and tap the "Follow" button.
- Tap the ... (iOS) or â‹® (Android) button at the top of the user's profile. This will open a new menu with several options.
- Tap "Turn on Post Notifications." You'll see a small system pop-up indicating that you've enabled post notifications for that user. You'll now be notified whenever that user makes a new post. You can later turn off specific user notifications using the exact same method.
