Instagram often brings some novelties. Within the platform, we work on some little things every day, which are implemented later, and which users may not even notice sometimes. Sometimes these are small things, and sometimes slightly bigger changes that bring a better experience on this popular social network.

 

7 great Instagram tricks

In our new blog we bring you 7 Instagram tricks and hidden possibilities that you may not have known about, and we believe that at least a few of them will be interesting to you.

 

1. Change the Instagram icon on your phone

Did you know you can change Instagram an icon on your phone?

Instagram surprised users on the occasion of his 10th birthday and provided this (we don’t know why) hidden option. It is reached when you click on Settings and swipe down a few times. These interesting icons that lead to the gift icon are displayed. We don’t know how much this option will be available but it’s interesting that you can choose from as many as 13 species Instagram icon. Give it a try, it's interesting.

2. How to secretly look at someone’s Story?

If you’ve ever wanted to look at someone’s story without that person finding out you looked, there’s one interesting option. The limitation is that you cannot view the story directly on the desired profile, but only within the feed, when the story appears in the familiar, upper part.

When on Feed-in you see the story you want to see, without the person seeing your profile in their reviews, you need to do the following. You click on the story in front of the Story you want to view and drag your finger to the desired story without releasing your finger from the screen. That way you have the opportunity to see what it's all about. It is true that he saw Story you can't look this way. You can see what it looks like in the picture below.

3. How to hide a post from a profile without deleting it?

Ever wanted to delete a particular post from your profile but weren't 100% sure to do so? There is an option that can hide the post from the profile but it will remain in the archive and you can return it to the profile at any time. You need to click on the three dots in the upper right corner of the post and when the window opens, just click on Archive. You can find this post in a more well-known archive Story-I. All you have to do is switch from the story archive to the post archive.

4. Paint the Story as you wish

There are more and more opportunities to express creativity on Instaram story. As through various Story sticker-e (of which there are more and more), as well as through a lot of hidden creative ideas, which you may not have known about. In this blog we present one of them.

When you select the photo you want to upload, click on the “dotted” icon next to the text icon (Aa). Then select the color you want at the bottom. That color, as you probably know, can also be a specific color from a photo. After selecting a color, click on the photo, hold with your finger for two seconds and the entire surface will turn into the color you selected. Now you can e.g. select the eraser in the upper corner and make a certain pattern in the photo. You can see an illustration of the above in the following photo.

5. Story archive by location

Although there is an archive of stories for a long time and we can easily review all our stories and get to the one we published, for example. last year, there has recently been the possibility of reviewing all archived Story-I by location. You can see what it looks like in the photo below.

6. Posts you liked

If you want to have an overview of all the posts you have ever liked, you can find them all in one place via Settings - Account - Posts you've liked.

 

7. Alt text on the photo

Alt text serves to help Instagram algorithm to understand what is in the photo. Instagram uses certain photo recognition technology to "see" what's actually on it. This technology helps Instagram-to show the post to more people who like your type of content. With or text, you also give the algorithm a textual explanation of what is in the photo and it thus becomes even more powerful and useful in the desire to help you grow organically. Although most of all he likes when you sponsor posts.

Since 2017. we cooperate with Digitizer. Extremely precise and professional cooperation. We are seeing results, and given the industry we are involved in, a lot depends on the marketing that Digitizer does. The results are best seen in the number of people who come to the interview. Every time I suggested something, the Digitizer team made sure to make changes to the presentation. Of course I recommend them. They have already been recommended.

We have been working with Digitizer since, I think, the very founding of Digitizer in 2014. A wonderful, long-term cooperation in which the Digitizer team always meets us to meet all our requirements in record time. Great ideas and very friendly co-workers. By cooperating with Digitizer, we managed to raise our website to a higher level, a larger number of people following us on social networks and a larger number of clients in our retail stores. I feel free to suggest to Digitizer my opinion about cooperation and they respect it. Digitizer is a company I recommend to anyone who wants serious collaborators. A wonderful creative team that listens to your needs and desires and turns them into reality.
