Instagram, owned by Meta, is rolling out ‘Your activity’ and several other features.
As of now, things like comments, likes, story sticker reactions, etc. will be able to be batch managed – deleted, archived, etc.
The company said in a blogpost that it started testing a new way for people to manage their Instagram activity in one place at the end of last year.
As a result, this new feature, called ‘Your activity,’ will start rolling out for everyone in the near future,” it said.
People will also be able to sort and filter their content and interactions by date as well as search for previous comments, likes, and replies to stories from specified dates all in one place.
The platform can be used to locate content that users have recently deleted or archived, to view their search history, to determine their time spent on the platform, as well as to download information.
It was announced earlier this year that the company would provide ‘Security checkups’ to people whose accounts may have been compromised. Users worldwide can now take advantage of this service.
Instagram post image previews on Twitter
New features are introduced frequently on social networking sites like Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp and others to maintain the interest of users. Several new updates posted by Instagram recently promise to improve the way users’ content appears outside of the app. According to Instagram’s blog, these updates will take effect in the coming weeks. “We heard your feedback and are looking forward to better showcasing your content in more places and helping you grow your audience,” Instagram said in the update. Users now have the option of including an image preview in their tweet when they share Instagram posts to Twitter from public accounts. Your content is highlighted and a preview of what people can expect when they click your link.
Instagram hopes this update will provide a better experience for users scrolling on Twitter who are interested in seeing a preview of Instagram content. It is evident that people share their images, reels, and videos on Instagram with those they follow. A public Instagram account is all that is necessary in order to view an Instagram preview on Twitter, regardless if it is your own or someone else’s.
An image preview will appear as a Twitter Card with a thumbnail when you link to a public Instagram post from a tweet. In addition to the preview of the image, the caption from the post is displayed when you share from Instagram to Twitter. Furthermore, by clicking the preview link on Twitter, you will be taken directly to the Instagram post. When shared to Twitter, all types of feed posts, including photos, videos, carousels, and reels, will be previewable. At least for now, stories are not displayed as previews on Twitter.
Instagram profiles can also be embedded on websites, in addition to tweeting previews. You can now share previews of your profile and up to six of your latest images to encourage people to view more. Previously, public users were able to embed posts on external websites-now, you can share previews of your profile and up to six of your most recent images. The service will first be offered in the United States, and more countries will follow soon.
You can embed an Instagram account on a website by following these steps:
- Go to the profile you want to share.
- Click the gear icon to access your profile. You can also access another profile by clicking the three dots
- Click on “embed,” then “copy embed code.”
- Paste the code into your website to show a preview of your profile.
90 secs reels
Alessandro Paluzzi, an engineer and tipster on Twitter, recently announced that Instagram is planning to extend the reel length to 90 seconds. Currently, reels are limited to 1 minute on Instagram. While TikTok, the original inspiration behind reels, allows videos up to 90 seconds, it’s not clear whether Instagram will follow suit. No official announcement has been made by Instagram regarding this new feature.
Paid subscriber mode
Earlier this week, Instagram started testing its subscriber mode in the U.S., and in the coming months, it will be available internationally as well. It will work like the Patreon and Only Fans models, with users paying a subscription fee to access exclusive content, stories, and live videos.
3D avatar mode
Instagram introduces 3D Avatar features on its platform as a part of its mission to be metaverse-ready. Based on Mosseri’s definition, avatars are dynamic representations of users that are superior to profiles. Each avatar will have a backpack in which to keep their NFTs and other digital assets. Right now, users can use this feature by going to Profile then Menu then click to Settings , click on Account and now Make your own avatar, to try it out. At the moment, avatars are only available in DMs and stories.
