Instagram | Users can now operate multiple Accounts
One of the biggest online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service Instagram has confirmed that it has been testing a feature to allow switching between multiple accounts on its iOS app.
For Instagram users with multiple accounts, life has just became a lot easier than before.”
Instagram released a new feature to allow switching between multiple accounts on its iOS and Android apps. Its users are now able to add and switch between five different accounts. It had started testing account-switching for iOS users last week. Back in November 2015, Instagram tested this feature for Android users, but the company did not reveal how many iOS users were able to switch accounts.
Instagram users who updated to version 7.15 of the app will find an “Add Account” option in the app’s settings. Once you add a second account, you’ll be able to switch to it quickly by selecting it from a new menu at the top of your profile page. Whenever you get a push notification, you’ll also be able to see the related account.
Earlier, people could not store multiple Instagram account logins at the same time. If you wanted to switch between accounts, you had to log out of the current account and log back in under the different credentials. It seemed that Instagram really wanted people to maintain only one profile identity, but as the photo-sharing app became more prevalent, the need for multiple accounts also grew. People who already had a personal Instagram account perhaps wanted to start another one for their small business, or they were tasked with maintaining an Instagram profile for their company or brand. This is very useful in some or the other ways.
Instagram was probably also influenced to create this feature by how younger people use the app. According to the New York Times, kids these days like to compartmentalize their social presence with multiple accounts. One is a “fake” private account, or a “finstagram,” where they share unflattering selfies, drunk pictures, and funny memes. Then they have a “real” public account, or a “rinstagram,” that they consider their official grownup profile in case their parents, teachers or employers look them up. By making it easier for these young users to switch between accounts, Instagram might increase how long they remain engaged in the app and boost ad revenue. This is the great idea of collecting more wealth by making users happy and satisfied.
