You can now pin comments on Instagram and highlight it for the public. Comment pinning is not new on social media. YouTube has this feature for a long time now. When you upload any picture or video on Instagram, several people see it. Many other users comment over your posts. Out of that some comment maybe really genuine and relatable to your post. But comments are normally in random order. The best out of ten comments may be down on the list.
So, when you highlight a comment, it comes to the top and everyone gets to see it. Also, it’s a good way to weed out the lame and bully comments that are often a bane on social media. The good thing is you can pin more than one comment on a post. As I said, it will propagate positive and genuine comments. A few days ago Instagram rolled out this feature for the public. They even notified their users via Twitter.
How To Pin Comments On Instagram.?
Now, let’s check out how the new feature works on Instagram.
- Launch Instagram
- Go to any post that has comments
- Long press on the comment that you wish to pin
- On the top of the screen in a blue bar, three options will show up: To pin, report or delete the comment
- The pin action will be represented by a Push Pin icon. Tap on it
- Once you decide to pin a comment, a pop-up screen will show up. It will ask you to confirm the action.
When you will pin a comment on Instagram, the person who commented will get a notification about it. You can pin up to 3 comments. Even if your post has a single comment you can still pin it. Your Android device must run the latest Instagram app with build v188.8.131.52.120 to use the new feature.
So, try out the new feature and pin your favorite comment on any of your Instagram posts. If you did not know Instagram has also kick-started a similar platform as TikTok. This portal is called Reels where one can share brief video content of a few seconds.
