Let’s make a little clear what Collections is and what are its work principles.
As Instagram declare:
“Starting this week, you can save posts into private collections.”
So, what actually does it mean?
About 4 months ago, social net Instagram provided to users an opportunity to save posts to take a look at later, because of like, or any other reasons.
This option was very demanded by users who previously had to made screenshots of all the stuff they liked - the amount of consumers of such like approach made some around 46% of Instagram users.
Now Instagram said that there is a thing, named Collections - it’s a tool which can help to divide bookmarked posts into different types of groups, what cam makes the organisation of content simple and clear.
Now about how to operate with Collections.
When the Instagram content is saved - whether it will be video content or image - it doesn’t matter, Instagram will ask you if it’s necessarily to save it to already created collections or into the new one.
It’s simple, convenient and practical.
Instagram provided such kind of tutorial on the Collections use:
“Tap and hold the bookmark icon underneath any post to save it directly to a collection. You can create and name a new collection when you save a post, or you can add it to one you've already created. You can also create a collection out of your existing saved posts. Tap the plus icon in the top right corner, give your collection a name and select the saved posts you'd like to add.”
Reasons to use Collections for users
For sure it’s a service for those people who are deeply integrated into the world of Instagram, but we have to understand that there is an audience, who do not want that their messages to be touched by anyone.
It means that we have to provide a little explanation about who will see the saves.
Another point is about the Collections number.
We are sure only about that user can have 4 collections so far.
When the Collections option could be started to use by Instagramers?
The start of option is expected as for Andriod and as for iOs users by this week.
Dy you planify to use new instagram option - Collections?
Whether do you think that Collections will make Instagramers life easier and comfortable, or it will make mass and complication?
