  1. Justin, your explanation was very thorough, appreciate, I have Ipad 3 and Iphone 4 and I cannot @mention to people commenting on my photos. I have tried, my husband has and I do not get pop up at bottom of screen, it goes directly to my page. I have searched and searched for some answers on net to no avail and want to acknowledge those who have acknowledged me. Thank you

  3. When you have a locked profile, and tag another person (or IG) can they still view that photo?

  4. THANK YOU! Now i’m done spending a ridiculous amount of time writing all the names manually, scrolling up and down to check if i spelled it right!! This is just SO much easier, thank you for this article <3

    Someone mentioned me somewhere, but the post wouldn’t load and now I can’t find the user or the notification anymore. Is there a list where I can find past instagram mentions?
