Instagram Begins Rolling out New Collections

The popular social media app Instagram adds value to its existing collection features by letting users create libraries of posts they can share with friends. The Instagram team declared on Twitter that you could save the content into a “collaborative collection” that you and your friends can view and access to contribute to.

It was back in 2017 when Instagram first launched its Pinterest-like-collections feature, which allows you to save and arrange the post into respective categories, while this update puts a spin on things by allowing your insta friends to add posts of their own.

The CEO of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, updates channels revealing that you and your friends can save posts from your Instagram feed and explore pages and DMs too.

To get started using this feature, you need to hit the bookmark icon at the bottom right corner of the post that you want to save, choose the option to build a new collaborative collection, suggest a name and then toggle on the option that says Allow friends to join this collection. Over here, you may add up to 250 people to your collection.

The app says the user can also create a collaborative collection within a chat. Once done, anyone using the chat can add or remove the content from the shared collection. It is an amazing and fun way to brainstorm different perspectives or share humorous posts with your friends.

On the other hand, remember that if you add a post from a private account to a collaborative collection, it can be viewed only by those who follow it. And if a creator decides to delete a post you have already added to your collection, Instagram will automatically remove it from the collection. You cannot make a collaborative collection private once it’s created or share private collections you have already created with others.
