Instagram’s sneakiest hidden feature might be the greatest one yet
How did I not know about this?
If you're one of the few in the dark, please, let me bring you into the light.
Instagram has a feature that arrived some time ago, but without much fanfare. I think we were probably all pretty annoyed by the algorithm change that won't show our timeline in order (tbh I'm still annoyed). But this feature is actually useful, and I can't believe I didn't know about it sooner.
Archive allows you to "hide" photos from your feed without having to delete them. The photos are simply stored in an "archive" until you decide to add them back to your feed.
As someone who wanted to "rebrand" her Instagram, archive became a shining beacon of hope. I could hide all of my old or ugly photos without having to delete them and the memories attached.
How do you archive?
Go to the photo you want to hide
Click the three dots at the top right corner and you'll see this message pop up. Simply click on archive once you're sure you're ready to hide the photo.
Go back to your profile
Click that cute little clock at the top right hand corner and it will bring you to your archive. You'll be able to see all the photo you've archived in chronological order.
To bring a picture back
If you want to add the photo back to your feed just click on the photo and hit the three dots at the top right. You'll see this menu and then just click "show on profile". Once you go back to your profile the photo will be back in its original slot.
See? Super easy and super life changing.
Archive is also good if you're a shady bitch and need to hide photos for a short period of time. Or if you're a not shady bitch but trying to be a professional lady. Applying for jobs and want to make sure you look good and wholesome? Archive those wild pics until the contracts are signed, my babes.
The rules of 2019 have already been decided and there’s nothing we can do about it
People are already mad
by Caroline Phinney
I feel kind of bad for 2019 because people are already mad at it and it hasn't even started. It's like when you get with someone following a breakup and you're already assuming they're cheating on and lying to you, because why would anyone ever be genuine? How can you blame us though? Even if…
An Instagram influencer told us how to travel the world for free (or at least cheap AF)
Fine, I’m the Instagram influencer
by Nian Hu
So everyone's always asking me how I'm able to afford all of my many, many glamorous vacations to exotic destinations like Thailand and Greece. The answer, of course, is that I'm chronically broke and I literally wear the same three shirts over and over again. Now there's a solid money-saving hack! But another part of…
