Instagram: Organize your Bookmarked Posts in a Private Collection

A good news for Instagram lovers! Instagram has introduced a new feature which enables us to save posts into a folder called collection and you can also pin the posts you want to save for later. You can also create different folders to organize the post accordingly.

Once the post is saved, you can view it in your private collection.


The new feature added resembles the feature from Pin Interest wherein it allows us to pin the post to our boards and we can categorize them as well.

The feature was first introduced in December last year. As a user at some point, we might have wanted to save the post or video or funny memes to view them at a later date.

With bookmarking tool, you can privately save the post and view them later, therefore no hassle of downloading a photo to your phone to chug up the memory on the device.
