How to explore photos and videos on Instagram?

New to Instagram? Don't know how to explore photos and videos on Instagram? No worries. Here are some quick and easy tips for you to explore Instagram photos and videos.
Activity Tab:
  1. You can explore Instagram photos and videos from the 'Activity tab'. The Activity Tab will show you the recent activity of the people whom you follow. To see, open the Instagram app and tap the heart icon located at the bottom of your screen and then tap "Following" to see activity from the people you follow.
  2. Tap "You" to see the most recent activity for you, including users who have followed you, @mentions for you, and likes and comments for your photos and videos. (Instagram notes that the "Following" tab won't work for users who follow more than 1,000 people.)
From the 'Search & Explore' Tab:
  1. Search and Explore tab i.e. the Magnifying glass icon located at the bottom of your app page. As you tap the 'Search and Explore' icon, Instagram shows photo and videos and also users whom you might like. Instagram selects the posts which are liked by the people whom you follow or which have been liked by large numbers of other Instagram users. 
  2. If any of your posts appears in 'Search & Explore' list, you will receive a notification.
  3. Only photos and videos that are shared publicly will appear in Search & Explore, and posts that were shared privately or shared through Instagram Direct will not appear in Search & Explore.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
