Yeah its pretty new. If you download iOS 11 its on the control panel thing when you swipe up.
If you like photos of Vegan food, graffiti, and my kids... amp.rok
My user name on Instagram is rossismyname. I thought I was hella clever when I made it years ago.
This may be a long shot but is there any way to retrieve photos that you have uploaded to Instagram into your “photos” on iPhone? I had photos that I had taken at Deftones in Glasgow but the phone I had them on was stolen and don’t think they were backed up but I have the photos uploaded on my Instagram account. Is it possible to save them to “photos” on my iPhone or am I being to optimistic? Haha
You can go to the instagram website and go to your account, right click and select "View Page Source" (I think it's the same in Chrome and Firefox), on your keyboard hit Ctrl-F(search), and then search for .jpg; the result that comes up, select the whole http address, through .jpg, and then post that in your address bar and enter; the picture you uploaded will now be there for you to save to your computer
That’s great. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. I’m wanting to get the photos framed and on my wall but when my phone got stolen I was worried that I’d missed my chance to get the photos back.
No problem! I've done that a bunch for various landscape accounts I follow, for photos I really like; pretty nifty trick
Systrom and Krieger are reportedly stepping down without citing a reason. That doesn’t sound too great.

Instagram completely changes how users scroll through its feed in biggest update yet
This is the worst major update I think I've ever seen in a social media app
Looks like it's being rolled back at the moment
Whew, it's been rolled back for me now. Ugh
@seatoshiningsea_photography follow my nature/landscape Instagram plz
lol "a bug"
a bug with a "how to use our new feature" tutorial
I think people were overreacting I wouldn’t mind that being an option to view the feed
I use Instagram only because Facebook has an awful interface. It would be great if smb creats Facebook analog, but with better interface.
Anyone else's IG keep crashing today?
Nah mine's been working normally; is it just IG for you that's crashing? Or other apps as well? Might want to try deleting the app and then reinstalling it
Anyone ever deactivate your account temporarily and then find that it doesn't recognize you so you can't log back in to reactivate it after only a few weeks?
Seems like this happens to thousands of people, they have full autonomy to suddenly get rid of your account for no reason and have no troubleshooting department to contact if you randomly get screwed by them. Of course through all of that, they also creepily keep your email in the database so you couldn't register under the same one again even if you wanted to. Social media fuckin stinks, very thankful for Jason.
got a sponsored post from Charlie Kirk “taking down” a high school student of color in my feed this morning. that was lovely to wake up to.
In the past, whenever I'd post a story, I'd only see the numbers of people that follow me who've viewed it; now, I'll get like 150 to 300-something views of the story, 90% of those from accounts that don't follow me. And these stories 99% of the time I haven't included any tagged accounts or hashtags, so how on earth are these people viewing my stories? And I'm noticing quite a few repeat accounts as well viewing the stories, so even though they don't follow me, they're somehow still seeing my posted stories. So weird
I have a lot of people who don’t follow me watching my stories. It used to be bots but now it’s actual accounts. Lots of tattoo artists for some reason.
I just don't get/really curious about how they find our stories to view; is there a section on Instagram I'm not aware of where you can watch random stranger's Insta stories
