Instagram has again added a new feature freshly from another service. Like Pinterest, it has added the latest feature called Collections where you can save other posts. Users can create a gallery of photos in a similar way we create boards on Pinterest allowing users to save a post, set up and label a new collection. The main difference between the collections feature of Instagram and Pinterest is that the collection is made visible only to the users. For saving the post users would have to tap and hold the bookmark icon present below the post and save it directly to the collection.
You can create and name a new collection while saving the post or can also add it to the already created collection. The collection can be created out of the existing saved posts by tapping the plus icon present at the top right corner, give a name to your collection and select the saved posts you would like to add, Instagram clarified.
Instagram stated that: “After introducing the ability to save posts last December, 46 percent of Instagrammers have saved at least one post. Whether you want to plan your next day trip, revisit your favorite artists’ illustrations or always have some animal videos on hand, collections would track the post you want to remember.”
Previously Instagram brought the geostickers to New York, Jakarta, and Sao Paulo. But now people from London, Tokyo, Madrid and Chicago can also access the geostickers. Another feature added to Instagram was a selfie sticker. Whenever users capture a photo or video and tap the smiley face button, they will notice a new selfie sticker along with their profile photo, that lets them take a mini selfie. The introduction of this new collections feature was inspired by Google’s “Style ideas” in Image Search feature.
