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:
- To save a post, tap the 'Bookmark' icon below it.
- 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.
