Is It Possible To Have Two Instagram Accounts?
As a business owner, social media manager, or content marketing expert, I’m betting you’ve asked yourself: “is it possible to have two Instagram accounts?” Well, the time has finally arrived—it is now possible for anyone to manage multiple Instagram accounts.
This is a brand new feature following the release of version 7.15 for iOS and Android. Now managing multiple Instagram accounts for your 3 dogs, 2 cats and bird will be a lot less time consuming.
Seriously though, this is hugely significant for those social media managers who, in the past, were all consumed by this task. Now those same managers will be able to optimize your presence on social media because of all the time they’ll be saving.
The feature will become live gradually throughout the week to all users and it will allow the user to manage up to 5 accounts.
Adding and Switching Between Multiple Instagram Accounts
To add another Instagram account from your mobile phone, go to your profile page. From there, click on the settings cog in the top right corner and find “ADD ACCOUNT”. And like magic, you will be taken to a login screen allowing you to connect to another account.
To switch between these accounts, all you have to do is tap your username at the top of your profile page and select the account you wish to manage. Another way to do this is to hold down on the profile icon in the bottom right (this can be done from anywhere within the Instagram app) and the list of accounts will appear for you to choose from.
Removing an Account
Switch over to the account you’d like to remove, once there, return to the settings cog and “LOG OUT” of the preferred account.
A New Way to Engage with Images
With this update comes a new way to like, comment and share the pictures with a DM. While viewing photos in the grid format you can tap and hold to expand the image, giving you the options like, comment or share.
