What is the new “Collab” feature of Instagram?
Instagram VP of Product Vishal Shah recently announced the feature. Collaboration is an abbreviation of collaboration. He said that collaboration and information sharing are a big part of many users’ activities. To test this process, we have also worked on the Collab feature, which people can use to participate in Feed Posts and Reels.
Does the Collab feature combine likes and comments from two accounts?
Keep in mind that using this feature, one post will appear on two Instagram accounts. But the question that arises here is what is the task of likes and comments?
This type of post contains both likes and comments from both accounts, so it can have more likes and comments than individual posts.
Putting together Instagram posts with Collab
This feature is currently being tested in the UK and India and may not be available to everyone in the UK and India. Sometimes Instagram activates new features only for some accounts and sometimes it does this for all people in a country. Of course, there is no more information available on how to publish Instagram’s collab feature.
If you are in one of the countries of India and the UK and the Collab feature is not activated on your Instagram, you can follow the steps below:
- Enter the App Store / Google Play software
- Search Instagram
- If there is an update button, click on it
After updating, check if the Collab feature has been added to your Instagram.
If you still do not have access to the new feature of Instagram after updating the software, you should wait for this feature to be offered to more people.
What is the difference between collab and mentioning?
By mentioning, users have to tap on the photo to see the mentioned people, and the followers of the people you mentioned will probably never see your post unless the mentioned person shares the desired post in the story. share Although it has the same application, it is different from Collab.
However, in the Collab feature, account usernames are displayed above or next to the title (even in another person’s account). This feature has the potential to increase your following because other users will see your ID directly.
