Instagram is now the leading social media app in the world. Right after Facebook bought Instagram back in 2012 for $1 Billion, the giant has left no stone unturned to improvise the features of the app. There’s hardly a month where you don’t see a new feature updated. The recent Reels feature by Instagram is a best alternative for those countries where TikTok is banned.

Express yourselves with stories, posts, videos via IGTV, and now Reels as well. We’ve tried every single feature in Instagram and we observed that Reels is gaining an exposure slowly as compared to other existing features. Those 15 seconds videos in Reels are just like expressing your thoughts in 140 characters on Twitter. If you ask us, to be honest, it’s an art in itself.

The Explore section is what we love the most where you can check out various contents from the creators around the world. It shows only those contents which are of your interest and this is based on the accounts you follow, posts you like, stories you view and videos you watch. So make sure you follow the right people so that you can make the most out of the Explore section.

Apart from this, you can also connect with friends and loved ones with video calls and instant messaging. Moreover, you can share stories of your whereabouts to make sure everyone in your group knows about your travel trips! These stories can also be saved as highlights if you want to view your stories even after 24 hours.

There are a lot of privacy customizations in Instagram through which you can decide who to allow you to tag in stories and who can message you directly. This gives you enough privacy options to choose from.

The best feature Instagram has launched in the past is the online shopping feature. You can now shop products from your favorite brands without moving to any third-party websites. Yes, you heard that right! It’s a complete online shopping experience within Instagram itself! Try it now!
