RAINBOW STORY RING
Now you may have noticed while scrolling through Instagram stroys that some accounts have a very beautiful rainbow circle around their profile picture. And you may have also wondered how on earth they got that. Well, it’s actually an awesome thing that Instagram does all in celebration of pride. Basically what happens is when you head on over to the text section type in hashtag pride and then select it from the hashtag section.
As soon as you click the done button Instagram gives you a little notification that says to celebrate pride all stories using the pride hashtag or pride stickers will get a rainbow circle around their profile picture. And the minute you post that story watch as the ring around your profile changes to a very beautiful rainbow. I think this is such an amazing thing that Instagram has done and celebrates. So if you want to change your profile picture to a rainbow now you know how you also do this.
The dual camera is another very cool hidden Instagram Feature that going to blow your mind and I cannot wait to use this more in my stories. So if you swipe along at the bottom until you get to the dual camera option. You’ll see that you can now film with the front camera and the selfie camera at the same time.
I am so excited about this and there are so many other things you can do like adding a little border to that selfie window. You also have a couple of shape options so whether you want it to be a square or a rectangle you decide. Then depending on what type of shot, you’re getting as well you can move the little window around to best suit your story if you want.
You can flip the camera too so that your selfie window is now much bigger and your front camera is in that little frame. finally, you can also scale things up if you want just by pinching out with your two fingers or pinching in. It is super duper simple, and as I mentioned I cannot wait to use this camera feature way more.
And also see what you guys do with it because this can be used in so many different scenarios like at a concert or if you’re showcasing some products. So if you have a personal profile then definitely check this one out for creators and business accounts I haven’t seen this one there just yet.
Now you can pin your favorite comments to the top of the comment section. So if you head on over to any one of your posts right now and check out the comments section. Go ahead and scroll through them until you find your favorite one. Then what you’re gonna do is slowly swipe to the left-hand side and behold there is a little pin icon if you tap on that. A little pop-up notification will appear saying that your comment has been pinned and now it is at the tippy-top. So anytime that someone comes across your profile and checks out your feed.
When they go through your pictures they’ll see all these amazing comments that have been pinned to the top. So just remember that anytime you comment on someone else’s picture and then also if you want to unpin the comments you simply swipe left again and tap on the pen icon and the comments will be unpinned. So go on your feed right now find a couple of your favorite comments and give them a pin.
Next up we have a cool hidden Instagram feature called The Remove Followers feature. Instagram has introduced a way for you to soft block users from checking out your accounts. If you want. So if you head on over to your followers and think you maybe have some bots or any unwanted followers.
Then right next to their name, you will see a remove button if you click on that and then select remove. Instagram will automatically make their accounts unfollow yours. So now they won’t see any of your future Instagram posts or stories and the crazy part is they won’t even know what happened because Instagram doesn’t send them a notification.
POST TO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
If you have multiple accounts then life just got so much easier for you. Because you can actually post to all of them at the same time when you upload a photo on your account Instagram shows an option. That if you want to show this picture on multiple accounts and if you want to show it you can just simply click on that and your one picture will automatically upload to many different accounts.
As soon as you’re ready to click share it’ll post to all of them at the same time automatically. If you can’t see your other accounts there just head on over to settings and right at the bottom over there you’ll be able to add all your various different accounts just by logging in.
