When you post a photo or video on Instagram, it will be displayed on your profile. Other users who follow you will see your posts in their own feed. Likewise, you'll see posts from other users whom you choose to follow. Pretty straight forward, right? It's like a simplified version of Facebook, with an emphasis on mobile use and visual sharing. Just like other social networks, you can interact with other users on Instagram by following them, being followed by them, commenting, liking, tagging and private messaging. However, there is the limitation. You can only post your images from smart phones.
Can you bypass it? Of course you can, by make your browser think you are using an a mobile resolution, for example, if you are a mac user, simply press command+control+R, which will give you option to choose your device, select iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 plus and refresh the page. You are ready to post images from your desktop in Instagram.
Recent research found Instagram use was particularly high among millennials, with roughly 60% of US online adults aged 18-29 (the youngest group surveyed) on the platform – but stats about younger teenagers are harder to come by. Desktop or mobile, with Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Messenger and WhatsApp all glamouring like open-beaked baby birds for our content, we are rapidly approaching the point where it will be possible to spend more time documenting our daily lives than living them. Yes, believe it or not, you can actually drive traffic to your site from Instagram. It may not be as easy as Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn or Google+, or even Facebook for that matter, but it can be done. The advantage those other sites have is that you can post links to your site right in your comments. On Instagram, you can post a link to your site in the comments but it doesn’t post as a hyperlink. Unfortunately, this does make it more difficult – and I hope Instagram changes this in the future.However, you can post your website link in your bio. I recommend you choose this link carefully since it’s the only one you can advertise.
Now you know how to post images from desktop mac, let's start posting.
