In recent years, Instagram has added new features to its platform that give users more control over their page’s design.
Now the company has rolled out a new feature that allows users to pin specific posts to the top of their profile.
What is Pin to Profile on Instagram?
Instagram has officially followed in the footsteps of Pinterest, Twitter and TikTok and now allows users to keep their most popular posts at the top of their page.
Now users can pin up to three posts to the top of their pages and it looks like they just posted them recently.
The posts can be either images or rolls.
According to The Verge, the feature has been in the works since earlier this year and was first spotted by reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi.
Instagram later conducted a formal test in April before officially launching the feature in June.
How do I pin posts to my Page?
When users click on one of their images, they are now greeted with a message that reads, “Now you can pin posts to your profile.”
To pin posts, users need to follow a few simple steps, including:
- Select the post you want to pin
- Click on the three circles in the top right corner
- Select “Pin to Profile”
Unlinking photos involves the same three steps, but users simply select Unlink from Profile instead.
What have people said about the feature?
Shortly after the feature was announced, several users took to Twitter to offer their opinions.
“Being able to pin posts to Instagram profiles is actually pretty cool,” wrote one user.
“I lost maybe an hour this morning deciding which posts to pin…” added another user.
While some users loved the feature, others accused the social media app of copying other sites.
“You can pin posts to your Instagram profile… they’re so dying to be Tiktok,” said a third user.
