Instagram Notifications: A Quick Rundown
Mar 30, 2016
Chances are you’ve noticed a lot of buzz on social media about Instagram changing. But before we all go up in arms over the latest Instagram update, we’re here to give you a rundown of the changes, and what it means for you as a user.
We like to stay on top of all the latest social media news, and recently wrote a blog about the breaking Instagram update news. A rolling stone gathers no moss, so Instagram keeps rolling out the changes; the latest update brings notifications into the mix.
Because the algorithm that orders your feed will be changing, only the posts deemed relevant to you will appear in your feed. Posts that get major action are more likely to be placed in your feed, which means the posts that get less likes will get left in the dust. In order to keep up with your friends and favourite profiles, you can now activate notifications for individual profiles.
How do they work?
For each profile you want to keep up to date with, you can activate push notifications that will inform you whenever that user posts a photo. This ensures you won’t miss out on content that may otherwise be deemed “less relevant” to your feed. To turn on notifications for profiles you wish to follow, you click on the “three dots” on their profile page, or beside their photo in your feed.
Will people still see my posts?
Sure they will! You can remind your loyal followers to turn on notifications for your posts. To keep your posts in others’ feeds, save the title image we provided at the top of this page, and post it on your Instagram profile as a reminder for your followers to turn on notifications for your posts.
