Instagram recently announced many updates that can make users’ life easy. Among these updates, now you can pin posts and reels on your Instagram profile similar to how you can do on your Twitter and TikTok profiles. Adam Mosseri, the Head of Instagram said while announcing this feature, “Your profile is your space, so we’re looking for more ways to give you control over that experience.”
Users can pin up to three posts on their Instagram profile in 3 simple steps. Once you decide to pin a post on your profile, these posts will always be displayed at the top of your profile, even after you upload new posts on your profile.
For android as well as iOS users, here is how you can pin posts or reels on your profile:
- After opening your Instagram profile, select the post that you want to pin.
- Then tap on the three dots that are displayed in the right-hand corner of your screen.
- Finally, select the “Pin to your profile” option.
This post will appear at the top and you will see a small white-colored pin icon at the right-hand corner of the picture. It is also easy to unpin your profile by following the same easy steps. You can pin up to three posts on your profile and on attempting to pin one more post, you will get a confirmation pop-up on your screen. If you still wish to pin it, you can continue by tapping on the confirm option.
Pinning posts on your Instagram profile will make your favorite images or videos the first thing people see when they open your profile. This feature helps creators and users increase their visibility and choose what they want people to on opening a profile. It will also ensure that some posts are getting noticed by anyone who visits their profile.
This feature was officially announced by the social media platform in April 2022 but was under testing from the beginning of this year.
