Instagram has been very famous among the other giant social apps that are taking over the platform. It is an application where you can share pictures and videos publicly or just with your friends. Recently Instagram added a new feature in which you can save posts by bookmarking them in a place in your account to watch later.
It is just like you bookmark websites on your browsers or keep certain screenshots in a folder for later use. You can easily bookmark the respective posts by tapping on the book mark icon underneath the post. Whether one wants to try out a restaurant that a friend posted about later, or pictures and videos of interest everything could be saved. But when, in 2016, Instagram first launched this feature into the updates it stuffed all the saved posts under one head. This, in turn, made it very confusing for the users to find the ones needed.
So to make it better, in version update 10.16, Instagram gave an option in the bookmarks section to from collections. There you can form different folders for the posts that you want to save and name each folder. So this will help others to keep the respective posts with them instead of taking screenshots or visiting profiles.
Here we will first tell you about how you can save posts and form new collections in your profile. And secondly we will tell you how to manage those collections after they are formed.
There is only one disadvantage with this method of saving posts and forming collections. That is the posts might get removed from collections without you knowing. This may happen if the person or page, who uploaded the post in the first place, deletes it.
So first update your Instagram app to the latest version or any version above 10.16 would work.
You can also create a new collection without going in your profile. If you have a post opened in your device and you want to create a collection containing it, this method can be used.
Here we will tell you how you can add posts to an existing collection very easily.
This was all about adding posts into your existing collections and creating a new one. You can even rename an existing collection. Go to the collection, tap the Menu option in the top corner and choose the edit option. There you can rename your collection. You can even delete the collection from there. Deleting collections won’t un-mark or un-save the bookmarked posts that were in it. You can still find them under the “All” tab.
