Learn how to pin your favorite comments in the Instagram app

July 12, 2020

While communicating online, you can choose to transform any simple conversation into an elaborate discussion through its comments section. It is a sure-fire way to boost reader engagement and better manage a conversation when a topic ventures into a place that is uncomfortable. Learning from this experience, Instagram has come up with a new feature that allows users to pin Instagram comments to their posts. Let’s see how to pin your favorite comments in the Instagram app.

As you may know, the comments section is sorted by algorithm, meaning some comments may get lost during the conversation. Through pin your favorite comments capability, you can bring them back in focus.
