Pin Instagram Post
Post pinning on Instagram is one of the long-awaited features for users, who want to be able to highlight their favorite posts that might be way down on the profile. The feature may also be useful for content creators who post frequently and want to highlight specific posts.
Currently, there is the ability to pin ‘Stories’ on the profile, but the new feature they are preparing would extend this ability to posts.
The feature will be similar to Twitter ‘s existing feature that allows you to pin tweets to the top of your personal feed.
