So, how are you finding posts you liked on Instagram? There’s a big difference between finding the posts that you like and finding the posts that matter. The first is about getting more of what you want, so if you’re not seeing enough of it, then that’s a problem. The second is about getting more of what matters to you. The first means that we can put some effort into figuring out what matters to people and making sure customers have access to it. The second means we need to be willing to listen to our customer base, be they fans or not, and make sure they have access to the things they want or need. How do we do this? By measuring and understanding our customer’s behaviour (user journey).
In this post I’m going to look at some tools that you can use to find which Instagram posts you like, and how to do it. This can be a very effective way of finding new followers, and learning what content is resonating with your audience. In the first part of this post, I’ll walk through some tools that we use for this purpose. Before we get into the tools, there are a couple of concepts we need to cover. First, what is an Instagram account? An account is simply a place where the user has an official presence. It does not have to be an actual business or social network (although technically it is). For example, you could have an account dedicated to your dog or writing blog posts about things you like to eat (or even just posting random photos). The only requirement is that it be a place where the user can interact with other users. Second, as mentioned in the introduction: Instagram isn’t actually all that well suited for product marketing purposes. Let’s take a look at why: If you have looked at any of our previous posts on marketing on Instagram (i.e., looking at our growth), you will see that the average person who follows us uses their profile as a place to share content they like on Instagram with their friends (e.g., @macrumours). In other words, they aren’t posting much new content themselves; they are mostly sharing images/videos from other people who also follow them (and likes/shares) on their own profiles (i.e., accounts). It is possible for these accounts “to follow” us in order to discover new content; however, it doesn’t matter if someone follows us because they typically aren’t posting anything themselves and may not want to be followed anyway — their follower count will still reflect who they follow and what content those people share with them. As such, those following us aren’t really following us unless we are following them too — there’s nothing promoting our products here unless we are either being promoted ourselves by someone else or by someone else who has shared something with us — so again there isn’t much value added by following anyone who follows anyone else . This kind of one-way circulation also extends into Twitter: when you follow another person’s account on Twitter and retweet their content — though it’s often easy enough for people linked
There are several ways of finding posts you liked from Instagram: 1. Go to the Storify page for that person and click on the “View” button. 2. Click on “Follow” and go to the Storify page for that person and click on the “View” button. You can also find them by searching for them on Instagram using hashtags ( #thingcongratulations , #thingsaccomplished or #somethinggood etc.) 3. If someone has a Facebook Fanpage, you can also find their Storify posts there by typing in their name into Facebook (they may have more than one page though). 4. You can also find what they liked by following them directly on Instagram, so you can see what they like — just search for their username in instagram and you should be able to find what they liked by clicking on the “Show More” link next to it (if someone likes something, it will appear as a blue dot in their feed). 5. You can also do it manually, but this is a much harder process: click on Followed, then click “View” and choose your account in InstaGram (and maybe any other accounts you follow as well, if you want to see all of them). Then scroll down until you find your Storify post; if there are many, scroll down further if there are fewer of them; once there are just one or two things, this is usually enough to get started with.
4. How To Find Posts You Liked on Instagram
There are several ways to find posts you liked on Instagram. Your first step is to post a photo of something interesting (a map, an image of a street sign, something really cool) that you think others will like. Then, repost the photo on your own account and post it again on Instagram with the hashtag #liked. You will see people reposting your photo and creating new “likes” for it. The best way to find what others like is to use the hashtag, #liked. Search hashtags such as #like and #likethis and find all the posts people have loved. You can also search for hashtags in specific categories including #fashion, #food, #wedding or #music; or even just look for “#follow” (and then follow all the accounts you see that include your hashtag). In this case, I use InstaPotato which finds a lot of great photos I’ve liked through Instagram and then gets them added to my @instapotato account. This allows me to add photos to my feed without having to search manually for them first.
There is a lot of data out there about what people find and like on Instagram, what they share and post, and even create new accounts for. And with that data comes a lot of insight: Over time, we’ve identified seven primary themes for what people share on Instagram: 1. People share photos that are meaningful to them. 2. People share photos that represent the type of content they produce (for example, funny vs inspirational). 3. People are active during certain times of day (for example, kids vs adults). 4. People post photos that represent their work (for example, food vs home). 5. People post photos in order to share their personality or interests (for example, instagrammers vs coffee snobs).
