How to turn comments on or off on your Instagram posts?

You can turn off commenting to prevent people from commenting on an individual post. When you turn off commenting, any comments that are currently on your post will be hidden, and people will no longer see the option to comment below your post. If you turn commenting back on for a post, previous comments will be restored and people will be able to comment again.

To turn commenting off or on for a post you've shared:
  1. If you are using an iOS device, then tap 'three horizontal dots' or if you are using an Android device, then tap 'three verticle dots'  located above your post.
  2. Select Turn Off Commenting or Turn On Commenting
  3. You can also turn off commenting on a post before you share it. On the screen where you add a caption or location to your post, scroll down and tap Advanced Settings, then tap Turn Off Commenting.

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!!
