Navigating Instagram Icons: Easily Understand the Updated Interface
Are you overwhelmed navigating Instagram™ icons? Instagram™ is always changing, but don’t worry because it’s only getting better. In fact, these updates are making it easier for your followers and buyers to find your business.
But with the Instagram™ changes it’s easy to lose track of how to navigate the app. Here’s everything you need to know about navigating Instagram™ icons.
Let’s start with the basics of navigating Instagram™ icons. A recent update makes it easier to share in all the Instagram™ neighborhoods.
While it’s great to consistently share Instagram™ Stories and Instagram™ Lives, it’s still important to show up in the Instagram feed. Now, there are two ways to post to the Instagram™ feed.
How to Post from the Instagram™ Home Screen
First, here’s how to post from the home screen. Instagram™ recently moved the plus sign icon to the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Tap on that icon and you can now post in any of the Instagram™ neighborhoods, including your feed.
How to Post from your Instagram™ Bio
The other way to add a post to your Instagram™ feed is by tapping on your avatar.
How to Keep Track of Instagram™ Notifications
Part of navigating Instagram™ icons is understanding where to find your notifications. Don’t just post and dash. Remind your followers that there’s a person behind your avatar. That includes keeping an eye on your notifications.
You can now find the notification icon in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. This is still where you’re able to see your likes, comments, and followers. I recommend scheduling time every day to check your notifications.
The Instagram™ Direct Message inbox also allows you to connect with your followers. Your newsfeed and explore tabs are also in the same spot on the Instagram™ interface.
How to Share Instagram™ Reels
One update that I’m particularly excited about is Instagram™ Reels. These 15-30 second video clips are becoming the go-to content on the app.
With Instagram’s recent updates, Reels are now front and center in the navigation bar. Instagram™ not only wants you to create Reels, but they want to make it even easier for people to find your content.
