Saving your Instagram posts

Instagram possesses over a billion active users every month; however, it still hasn’t rolled out the feature on who saved your Instagram posts. There are millions and millions of posts being updated every day. Every user is following their favourite person, celeb, or brand. So, when they see something that they like, they save it to their collections. Regardless of you having a private or public account, your posts can be saved by others.

But you won’t be notified when someone does so. However, there is a trick that allows you to know the number of people that saved your content. Here, this option is present in the advanced feature of Instagram insights in your account settings. However, you do have to turn your personal account into a creator or business one to do so. From there, you can know which posts are generating the most engagement among your viewers.

Asking Your Viewers

Another easy way to track the followers who have saved all your posts is by choosing to ask your audience. You can also choose to directly ask them; however, the task of sending a dm to every follower is time-consuming and slow. So, we would advise you to follow the following steps:

  • First, you need to head to the post that you are interested in knowing the insights of.
  • Proceed to take a screenshot of the post (picture). If it’s a video, then you can screen record it or take it directly from your camera roll.
  • Now, you need to proceed to your Instagram homepage and press on your “Story” icon present at the left side of the top of your screen.
  • Start uploading the screenshot or screen recording that you just took to your Instagram story.
  • You need to start typing a text asking your viewers about who ended up saving the post.
  • Tap on “Done” once you finish typing and share it with your followers.

Here, you can expect your followers to react to the story. But you have to remember that not all of them will reply to your story post. Also, the poll may not always be that accurate. However, you will get an idea of the number of users who have interacted and saved your post to their collection.

Will Instagram Notify Users?

Well, if the roles were reversed and you wanted to save someone else’s post, then you can do so without having the fear that Instagram will notify the user. Just like everyone else, you also come across content that is cool and fun. You can start saving posts and filling your collection without any worries. Instagram won’t disclose your identity at all. The users can see the insights regarding the number of people who saved the post but without their identities.
