Week #1 – How To Delete an Unwanted Instagram Comment


Instagram wants you to post images and short videos, in the moment, from your phone.

Whether you wrote a comment that you wish you hadn’t or want to delete someone else’s inappropriate comment, there is a way to remove Instagram comments.

I came across this when the last 3 images I posted received the same comment from different users “Did you receive my message?” followed by some emoticon symbol. None of these 3 posters follow me, Like the image, or tried to contact me before. They add have many (fake? bought?) followers and made an identical ridiculous comment.

You cannot remove an Instagram comment from the Instagram website.
You cannot remove an Instagram comment from within Hootsuite. (If you can on other Social Media managing S/W, please let me know.)

You CAN remove an Instagram comment from your mobile.

How to Delete an Unwanted Instagram Comment on an iPhone:

First, select your picture and scroll to the bottom.
Tap Comments
Find the comment that you’d like to delete and swipe your finger from right to left.
2 icons show up on the right:

  • The arrow – to return and do nothing
  • The red trash can – to delete the comment

Tap the red trash can.
3 options occur:

  • Delete and Report Abuse
  • Delete (only)
  • Cancel

Choose the level to delete the post and poof, the comment disappears.

1 Critical Way for Authors To Sell More Books On Twitter

The Networking Web - Catherine Saykaly-Stevens - Author - Speaker - 1 Critical Way for Authors To Sell More Books On Twitter

A Plea to Authors Active on Twitter Who Want to Sell Books:

140 Characters Is No Place to Sell Your Books

– Stop Selling and Start Tweeting Compelling Content!

How many times have these tweets filled your Twitter feeds?

  • Buy my Book #BuyMyBook
  • Buy My Book – It’s on sale
  • Buy my Book – $0.99 – today only
  • Buy my Book – download for free today
  • Like my Facebook Page – and buy my book

If repeated messages to buy or download books have never worked for you, why would it work on  others?  Repeated sales messages is the fast way for an author to find themselves Unfollowed.

Most authors on Twitter have developed a rapport and/or history with their followers. Still, there are many authors whose Twitter feeds are only repeated sales messages then they wonder why they’re not popular or getting sales.  There will always exceptions to this rule and celebrities exist in a ‘verified’ class of their own.

Post and tweet content that will grab our attention

  • Tell us why this book will appeal to us.
  • Add snippets of your research and offer interesting tips you’ve learned.
  • Offer details about your characters, plots, and story that will hook us.
  • Show us how clever you are with your writing.
  • Post articles – your own or draw attention to articles that relate to your book’s subject matter.

Funnel those interested readers seeking more of your content to your website. There they can learn about you and your books.

Now you’ve earned your opportunity to sell. Your chances of selling books are also much higher.

*In case you do not already have an author’s website to funnel online traffic to, you are missing out on an opportunity.

Good luck to you and much success!
