10 Instagram Tips you Probably do not Know

Have you just started Instagram and are you dazzled by all the possibilities, buttons, swipes and hidden filters?

It seems like everyone is using all those cool things from Instagram, but you are looking drowsy and linger at the base.

Shall I give you 10 great tips, which you can immediately try on Instagram?

1. Never miss a message from your favorite account again.

Do you find the timeline of Instagram quite cluttered and are you afraid that you miss messages from good friends? You never miss a message from a friend when you make a report.

That’s how you do that:

  • Go to your friend’s profile.
  • Click on the three dots at the top right of the screen.
  • Select ‘Enable message notifications.

Now you get a notification every time your friend posts a message, even if you are not on Instagram. Then put in the Instagram app on your phone that you want to receive notifications.

2. See what your friends are doing on Instagram

Are you curious about what your friends are doing on Instagram? Fortunately, there is a way to see all likes and reactions in one place.

That’s how you do that:

Click on the heart at the bottom of your screen. > Select the ‘following’ tab and there you will see all the activities of the people you follow.

3. Save messages so that you can view them later

Do you ever see messages that you want to view later, or do you want to keep? Did you know that you can bookmark them for later?

That’s how you do that:

Simply click on the bookmark icon below the message and save it.

4. Use Instagram photo and face filters

It is nice to occasionally apply a filter on your Instagram photo It should be very obvious, but those filters are sometimes a bit hidden.

That’s how you do that:

  • Press the camera icon at the top left of your screen
  • Or swipe to the right on the screen (you will also be in the photo stand)
  • Press the emoji on the bottom right, those are the face filters. Just try it out. You can easily do that without anything being posted on Instagram.
  • Now take a photo by pressing the gray-white button
  • If you swipe over the screen to the right on the left, you can try the photo filters
  • If you do not want to post the photo with filter on Instagram, you can still save it.

5. Use more links in your Instagram bio

Because you can not place clickable links in an Instagram message, the link in your bio is very important. You can refer to it if you want people to go to your website or blog. But you can only put 1 clickable link.

You can also use a so-called link hub . I use the Linktree app for this.

That’s how you do that:

  • Create a free account on
  • Link your link-tree account to Instagram
  • Add the links to your link tree

Add your personal link-tree link to your Instagram bio

6. Remove photos in which you have been tagged

Has someone ever posted a photo and tagged you in there. If you do not want that photo to be shown in your profile, you can delete the tag.

That’s how you do that:

  • Go to your profile (profile icon at the bottom right of your screen)
  • Click on the tag tool
  • Then you see all the photos in which you have been tagged
  • Select the photo you want to delete
  • Press the three dots on the right above the photo
  • Select Message options
  • Select Delete tag

7. Use certain hashtags to get more followers

If you’ve just started with Instagram, you do not have many followers right now. Using hashtags is the best strategy. Using the right hashtags increases the reach of your message. More people will then find your message and you will follow.

That’s how you do that:

The hashtags that you can use to get more followers are:

Nowadays hundreds of thousands of people on Instagram use robots to automate many of the difficult and boring tasks. Those robots are also called Instagram bots. Some of these Instagram bots are worth gold, while others ruin your reputation and may even cause you to be banned from Instagram. So it is important to use technique and do a little research first what it all means. Always use the best Instagram bot that is provided by sites or service providers that you can trust.

8. Save a message as a draft

Have you ever started making an Instagram message and suddenly did not have time to finish and / or post the message? You can then simply save the message as a draft and continue later.

That’s how you do that:

  • Create or choose a photo as you usually do
  • Write the text if necessary
  • Press the back arrow
  • You will then see the option to delete or save your photo
  • Press ‘save’

9. Find more people to follow

In the beginning you will mainly be busy with following and liking people yourself. Eventually they will follow you back automatically. But how do you find those people to follow. Very simple in ‘Discover people.

That’s how you do that:

  • Go to your profile
  • Click on the burger menu (the three dashes) at the top right of your screen
  • Select “Discover people”
  • You can find your Facebook friends here and the people in your address book
  • On the tab ‘Suggested’ are interesting people, who you often already know, or who follow you, to follow you yourself
