How to Get Notified When Your Favorite Instagram Accounts Post Photos

Are there Instagram users whose posts you just love? Really, you check their account all the time to make sure that you didn’t miss anything? Well, get excited because Instagram recently had an update and in that update, you can subscribe to your favorite users. After you do this, you will receive a push notification every time that user shares a post. Are you sold? Let us show you exactly how to get notifications when your favorite accounts post on Instagram in two easy steps.

1) Find The Account You’d Like To Keep Tabs On


Whether it’s adorable puppies, babies, your favorite photographer, or a family member, your first step is to find the account that you would like to follow. Seriously, you will get notified every time they post so make sure it is an account that you enjoy.

2) Turn On Post Notifications

Turning on post notifications is quite simple. Once you are on the profile of the user you want to get notifications from, you need to touch the ellipses. After you touch that, some options will show at the bottom of the screen. You want to touch “Turn on Post Notifications.” Then you will see a gray box that lets you know that your notifications are turned on.
