Updates updates updates… everything changes but still stays the same. Or does it??
Instagram’s latest changes is actually quite useful… Guides.
Another cliché, it does what it says on the tin, and to be fair its pretty user friendly with helpful recommendations and tips in an easy-to-digest format. They allow users to follow a curated flow of posts with commentary, which is great yeah.
Originally this was rolled out only to the health and wellness industry to help with people that were struggling with Covid-19. However, this feature is now being rolled out to all users.
Here is how to get around the new feature, hit the plus sign
From there, you then have 3 categories to choose from.
*Places: guides for travellers or Instagrammers who blogs about places.
*Products: catalogues of the products you use eg: what you use to create content whether you’re a YouTuber or a Content creator.
*Posts: Make something from the posts you have already created eg: select a few photos you have done and give tips on how you made them look consistent with a filter.
Obviously, this is my interpretation of what you can use them for, have a look and see what they can do for you.
You can also share these in your stories or share with people you know with the paper plane. This is a whole new way to get your products and stories out there.
If you have not got it yet hold onto your hats as I think it could be a game changer for some people.

Now I could suggest a ton of ways to use this new feature to your advantage but then I could be here for eternity, and we all know I don’t like to waffle so I am just going to leave this here.
