What are Instagram's Saved Posts?

Instagram released a new and exciting feature that lets Instagrammers save posts from other users that they can revisit later. Instagrammers will begin seeing a bookmark icon underneath posts in their feeds, the company announced Wednesday. Tapping the icon will add that photo or video to a private tab in their profiles. The account that shared the post will not be able to tell if it's been saved. The update will be released on Wednesday for iOS and Android, and in the coming weeks for Windows 10 devices. It is a useful feature/tool for those who use its app to keep track of new ideas, not just to follow their friends, making it a more viable alternative to Pinterest.
So now when you come across an inspiring video or a photo you want to remember, or an outfit you like or even inspiration for an upcoming vacation, you can now keep track of favorite posts right from your profile i.e. you can save posts you'd like to see again.
Here's how you can save Instagram posts from other users:
  1. To save a post, tap the 'Bookmark' icon below it.
  2. To see posts you've saved, go to your profile and tap the 'Bookmark' icon. Only you can see the posts you've saved. When you save someone's post, they're not able to tell that you've saved it.

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!!
