Week #3 – Breathe New Life into Old Instagram Posts With New Hashtags

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

By adding new hashtags to your older posts, you may rejuvenate them.

If you had an image that didn’t get the attention you felt it deserved, or if you didn’t use all the hashtags you’re using on more recent posts, you can still add those new hashtags to older posts. As long people are searching for those hashtags, your old posts may enjoy new attention and even be Liked now.

How To Add new Hashtags To Your Old Instagram Posts (by iPhone):

First select an older post then scroll to the bottom.
Tap the 3 dots …
You have 4 choices:
Delete – to delete the entire text and type from scratch
Edit – to edit the text you already have
Share – to share on other Social Media accounts and also edit the text you already have
Cancel – to return and do nothing
Choose Edit then add the new hashtags to the text and save.

Bonus Tip: You don’t need a huge Instagram following to get Likes on your Instagram posts. If you know how to use hashtags and choose the hashtags people search for, you can increase your Likes by many and even earn more followers.

This begs the question, are you using hashtags that people use most?

Week #2 – How To Edit Your Instagram Post

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

Sometimes, in the moment means you don’t have time to double-check your spelling, tag the right person, add a specific hashtag, or use geocode. Reviewing the post later, you may wish to add more and fix the errors, and you can.

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

First select your picture and scroll to the bottom.
Tap the 3 dots …
You have 4 choices:

  • Delete – to delete the entire text and type from scratch
  • Edit – to edit the text you already have
  • Share – to share on other Social Media accounts and also edit the text you already have
  • Cancel – to return and do nothing

Make your choice.

Week #1 – How To Delete an Unwanted Instagram Comment

@catherinenetweb

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.
