Starting this week, you can save posts into private collections.
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.
You can find your collections on the saved posts tab on your profile. Just like all saved posts, your collections are also private – only you can see them.
Since we introduced the ability to save posts in December, 46% of Instagrammers have saved at least one post. Whether you want to scope out your next daytrip, revisit your favorite artists’ illustrations or always have your favorite animal videos on hand, collections can help you keep track of the posts you want to remember.
To learn more about save collections, check out the Instagram Help Center.
Save collections are available on iOS and Android as part of Instagram version 10.16 in the Apple App Store and Google Play.
