OInstagram is one of the most used applications worldwide, along with Facebook and WhatsApp. And all that success has led to several Instagram improvements over the past few months. This app is nowadays much more than an option to edit images and share them with friends. Instagram has become an excellent tool for marketing and social outreach. In order for you to know everything that Instagram has to offer, we have created a post where we will explore some of the most secret features of Instagram. I am sure you do not know at least some of these tips.
After reading our articles, let’s go to the list!
Send photos in private mode
A few months ago, Instagram added the possibility to send photos only to preselected friends, and it could be done to a maximum of 15 friends. Once shared with them, your friends can comment and enjoy your image, just like in the Instagram Feed. To do so is, in fact, very simple. Edit the photo as usual and then instead of selecting the “Followers” option, choose the “Direct” option, as shown in the image below:
Then choose the friends with whom you will share this image. Remember that you can choose a maximum of 15 friends. After sharing, go to the upper right corner of your Instagram account, as shown below.
Click on the image and see if it was shared with the correct friends!
If you are seeing an image similar to the one above, with your profile highlighted and your friends’ “clearer”, it is because you did everything correctly.
Ignore messages from some people in the
Instagram The option of direct messages is interesting, however, it can often be used in a slightly awkward way … If you have that friend who is always sharing content with you privately, Instagram gives the possibility to remove this option to that specific friend. Just click on the three points that are in the upper right corner of the image. Then something similar to the one you see below will appear. Ignore direct messages in Instagram Choose “Ignore posts from this user” option and from now on he will not be able to send you any more direct messages to you.
Remove tags from images

Instagram Instagram filters are great! However, they have a very large “counter”: they can only be used without you posting the image. That was something impossible … until you read this text! To use the filters without posting the image on Instagram, just leave your iOS or Android in Flight mode and then use the filters and try to publish the photo. At the end, an error image will appear, but do not worry, it is purposeful! When Instagram uses filters but can not publish your image, it is automatically saved to your mobile photo folder. Now you can have the image with filters without posting it on Instagram!
Remove the location of the photos
By default, Instagram uses your location to create a tab on your profile, informing you where you’ve taken your photos. But if you are a more discreet person (just like me) and do not like to divulge where you are, just remove the location option. To do so is very simple. When it’s time to publish, remove the “Add to Photo Map” option as shown in the image below. Turn off Instagram location
