If you take your Instagram #FeedGoals seriously, there is reason to celebrate.
Instagram’s newest feature allows users to “Archive” already-published photos. This means you can hide a photo from your feed without actually deleting it.
Let me demonstrate.
This is my Instagram feed. As much as I like that pink-haired selfie I last posted, it doesn’t quite mix well with the overall theme of my feed.
I don’t want to delete it, but I don’t want to keep it on as I feel it ruins my aesthetic. Old Instagram would’ve made me make a hard choice. But now…
Voila! Your feed is as it was but without the repercussions.
With a simple tap, you hide the offending photo without deleting it. That means you keep the comments, the hearts, the post — and your feed cohesive.
It’s still there, but not really. It keeps the photo in an archived folder only you can view.
The best part? You could just decide to post it back up anytime you want. It’s like a break-up without consequences; the best of both Instagram worlds!
Now, this may seem like no big deal to some but if (like me) you’ve struggled with the proper documentation of your Instagram life versus the look and feel of the IG feed you aspire to have, this feature is a godsend.
Now, excuse me as I archive a bunch of mismatched photos.
