Everything You Need to Know About Instagram FAQ

Earlier, we posted a detailed article on all the common questions that people had on SnapChat. Next in the series is Instagram. Surprisingly, there are certain things on Instagram that can be quite complex. For this article, we dived through all the problems and issues people had on Instagram. Whether it has to do with problems uploading new videos or making changes to your privacy settings, we cover as many topics as we can. If you have unanswered questions then feel free to comment using the form at the bottom of the page. We will try and get back to you as soon as we can.

1. How to get a lot of likes on Instagram?
This is a hard one. In general, people who stick to one theme for all their photos generally do better than those who just post random pictures all the time. For example, let's take a look at Dan Bilzerian. He posts photos of guns, money, and naked women. It's definitely unique compared to the other image offerings on Instagram. Unless you are actually popular on some other platform, it is going to take some time to build up a good number of likes. Here are some easy tricks. First, make sure you are targeting hashtags that aren't overly popular. You want to make sure there is enough time for a lot of people to view your image on that hashtag. For example, rather than going for something as broad as soccer, try and break it down even further. Use specific hashtags like #soccertricks or #soccerfreekicks. That way, there is more of a chance that people are going to view and like your photos. Another thing to do is to follow people who have similar interests as you on Instagram.

2. How to see private Instagram profiles?
Unfortunately, unless you are some hacking mastermind, there isn't a way to see private Instagram profiles unless people accept your friend requests.

3. How to tag someone in comments?
This is really easy to do. All you have to do is to type the @ sign then type in the person's username. You should see a drop-down box as soon as you type in the @ sign. Once you post the comment, there should be a link that directs you to the person's Instagram profile.

4. How to merge photo and video into one Instagram?
There isn't a feature on Instagram that does this for you. Instead, you will have to rely on other video editing apps to add these cool features. For example, an app liek PicPlayPost in the Apple Store can help with merging videos into cool photos. This is also a great way to get new followers because you are offering something that is different to ordinary photos or videos. Try it out!

5. How to become Instagram famous?
Again, this goes back to my point in question one. You have to stick to a common theme. Brainstorm ideas and think of things that you can post photos of on a regular basis. For example, do you like to play basketball a lot? If you do then think of ideas to take cool photos or videos while playing basketball. It may involve some unorthodox basketball tricks or funny pranks. Make sure you do something that has the potential to go viral. It can also be things of informative nature. For example, you can do series of videos that help people learn the basics of the sport.

6. How to know who unfollows you?
This is pretty difficult to find out, especially if you have a large number of followers to begin with. There are some third-party apps that may help you track all your followers but if you want to do it yourself then you will just have to look through your list manually and see who is missing.

7. How to change my Instagram name?
This is easy to do. First, go to your feeds tab. Next, click the edit profile button. You should then see a text field where you can alter your name. Keep in mind how important your name is in getting new followers. Unless you are just using your Instagram for the purpose of sharing with close friends, you should try and be a little creative with your name in order to catch people's attention.
