Though we are trying to stay positive during these lockdown hours, the crisis time is adversely affecting our mind and overall fitness. To beat the quarantine blues, Facebook owned Instagram is introducing a new feature to its app called Guides.
As our daily average time is increasing on social media, Instagram is taking steps to make it more resourceful and contributing in uplifting the health of its users.
With the new feature Guides, you will be able to discover recommendations, tips and other content from your favorite creators, public figures, organizations and publishers on Instagram easily.
To view a Guide, you have to visit the profile of participating creators or organizations and tap the middle icon. If you want to learn more about a specific post, you can tap on the image or video to view the original Instagram post. You can also share a Guide to your story or in Direct by tapping on the share button.
This new approach of Instagram for promoting a healthy community is definitely a huge step taken by any social media platform, making Instagram ahead in its game.
Starting today, you can check out Guides – a new way to discover recommendations from people on Instagram. 🙌
The first Guides focus on wellness and mental health content from respected organizations and creators. ❤️
