Instagram archives

Let’s be real: Instagram is all about how many likes and positive comments users can rack up. People will even go as far as not posting an Instagram in the first place if they don’t think it will get enough likes. Others delete after a couple hours if the photo isn’t gaining enough traction, or if they’re embarrassed of it for some reason.

Instagram is giving users a new option with the archive feature. Just go to the “…” menu in the upper right above your posted photo > Archive. To see posts you’ve archived, click on the clock icon to right of your username at the top of your feed. All archived photos live there and only you can see them.

To “un-archive” photos, simply go to the “…” menu on your archived photo > “Show on Profile.” It’ll show up in the chronologically correct place with all of the original likes and comments. So instead of deleting your post next time, just archive it in case you feel the need to re-post it in the future.
