There is a LOT of content on social media. We all have our favorite people that we love to follow. As a business owner, you also have accounts that you like to follow to keep up with your competition. For the two main platforms, it has been pretty easy to get notifications each time an account that you follow posts new content.
In Twitter, you can use Twitter lists to filter out all of the content so that you don’t miss anything from your favorites. On Facebook pages, you can click to receive notifications and you will receive one each time that page posts new content. These work great, but what about Instagram? The only way to keep up with the feed is to go in manually to check out your favorites or hope that you catch the posts live in your feed. If you follow a lot of accounts like I do, it can be difficult to keep up watching all of your favorites, especially when you are looking for content to repost.
Instagram finally got on board and is introducing Instagram notifications! Finally, you will be able to get alerts when something new is added your watched streams. You can turn on push notifications so you no longer have to manually go through the feeds! This feature is available on iOS and Android phones.
To use the feature on the Android phone:
Click the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner of the account you would like to follow
Select Turn on Push Notifications
It’s that easy!
Is this a feature you are excited about?
