Scrolling on Facebook and noticing Instagram’s latest announcement to pin Instagram posts got your heart beating fast? Same here!

The “Pin To Your Profile” Option

The concept of stories highlight applies to pin Instagram posts, too, although it will not work exactly the same way. Once someone visits your profile, they can see your top three posts and immediately obtain the information you want them to have.

The “Pin To Your Profile” option is available in many countries. If you’re not seeing the option to pin posts on your feed already, it’s just a matter of time. 

Pinning specific feed posts lets you emphasize the content you want to announce to your profile visitors. For instance, if you’re a jewelry store online, you can pin Instagram posts that are most relevant to your audience. 

You can pin posts that could be special offers, top three reviews, available discounts, or other significant aspects, like product displays or mentions as the best jewelry store online.

Pin Instagram Posts (Android & iPhone)

Once you’re logged in to your Instagram account, whether an Android mobile or iPhone, tap on your profile and select one of your posts. If you click in the top right, you’ll see the “Pin To Your Profile” option.

Unpin Instagram Posts (Android & iPhone)

Pinned posts are not meant to be forever on top of your profile. You can easily remove them from the top of your profile anytime. When unpinning a post, it will return to its initial place in your profile grid.
