Instagram adds user post notifications (April 2015)
So in one of the latest updates, Instagram has snuck a new feature in pretty quietly. You can now turn on post notifications for individual users that you follow, so whenever they post an image you will be notified via a push notification.
Get Push notifications everytime your favourite Istagrammer posts
It's pretty simple to turn on:
View your favourite Instagrammer(s) profile. In the top right of the screen, click the three dots. From there the option will appear (see image above).
Seems like a pretty handy feature, especially if you follow a ton of people. I still would have rather they made a favourites list or something so that instead of getting unnecessarily interrupted each time one of my favourite Instagrammers post something, I can browse a list of them at my own leisure. Maybe they're worried that we'd only browse our favourites list (making the home feed kind of useless).
Users won't know you've turned on their Post Notifications
I've gotten this question a lot. When you turn on post notifications for someone, they won't know that you've turned it on. It is completely anonymous. The only person that will know is you. You'll get a push notification when they post a photo - that's it.
I hope this guide has helped!
If it has, please drop by my Instagram @itchban and comment ☎️ on my latest photo.
