Instagram tests new features and lets users pin old posts to profiles

Posted on



Gadgetren – Instagram has reportedly tested a new feature that allows users to pin one of their old posts or pin their posts in the profile section.

This information has been directly verified by Tech Crunch through its report. Meanwhile, pin post capability testing is being done by certain users selected by Instagram.

With this feature, the selected user can access the “Pin to your profile” feature, which can be found through the three-point menu that appears in one of the user’s posts. There you will see the ‘Pin to your profile’ option and the selected post will appear in your profile.

This feature was tested with the aim of providing more benefits to users who want to display one of their long-term effects. Pinning your profile to specific Instagram users is a good marketing strategy for themselves and their products.

For example, content creators such as photographers, YouTube users, reviewers, business people, or other professionals so that their long-term effects or products continue to be seen by their visitors or followers.

Posts pinned to profiles will remain forever unless the user disables this feature. This is different from Instagram stories that run only 24 hours a day. However, IG Story posts can still be displayed forever via the Pin Story feature that appears in the user profile.

There is no information or certainty when the PIN post feature will be launched globally and all users in the world, including Indonesia, can enjoy it. It is possible that he will be present in the near future, which is still in 2022.

Earlier, the feature was leaked by Alessandro Palozi on Twitter @ alex193a Yesterday, January 29, 2022. In addition to the PIN feature, Instagram is also testing other features that help users directly support social movements through hashtags such as #BlackLivesMatter, #womensright and #climatecrisis.
