Instagram the mobile photo-sharing application and service was launched in October 2010. Instagram has a bundle of beautiful features including visuals ranging from graphic designs to photography.
New Collections Feature By Instagram
Last year in December, Instagram have provided a feature to save your favorite posts by other users. By clicking on bookmark logo at lower right corner users can save the post for future use. Although this option is available there is no way to organize the saved images.
But this no longer will create a chaos as Instagram have planned to make users task easier. Users can now save the photos that they like in a separate private collection similar to Pinterest, which will make bookmark feature more useful.
The new collections feature rolled out by Instagram can assist users to sort images, GIFs, film screenshots for future reference.
How To Trigger Collections Feature?
In order to use this feature, users should first have the latest version of Instagram which is 10.16 installed on their iOS or Android device. Just keep on viewing the feed until you find an option like save. Then click on bookmark icon present below that post and add it to your collections. You may create new collections or add to an existing one.
You can also sort the posts and add it to the newly created collection. You can do this by clicking on “Saved” section of your Instagram profile and tapping the “Collections” tab and then clicking on “+” icon. By doing so you can create a new collection and select the photos that you want to add to this. All the posts saved by the users are private and not known by other users.
Instagram Mimics The Feature Of Pinterest
The new feature added to the company is similar to the bookmarking feature of Pinterest. The only difference is that in Pinterest you can make your collections public also.
In addition to this, Instagram has included one more feature that allows users to add selfie stickers to in-app stories which were seen in Snapchat as well.
