It’s one kind of a cool Instagram tips and tricks 2018. In Instagram, you can swipe through your DM and see all friends from your list who are actively online and when they were active last time. Likewise, they can see your activity status as well. Me being an open book, I don’t mind people looking at my activity status. But if you want privacy, you can turn off last acted activity. Here’s how you can do that, go to your profile, hit on gear(settings) icon, scroll all the way down until you see ‘Show activity status’, and then toggle it off. From then, your friends can’t see when you last acted, but that also means you can’t see their activity either.

2. Unsend messages on Instagram

While we are on the topic of DM’s, did you know that we can actually unsend messages?
All you gotta to do is just go to messages, find the message that you find regret sending it to your friend. Click and hold down and tap ‘Unsend’ pop up that appears. Just make sure you do it fast enough that the person you’re sending it to doesn’t see it.

The next trick is one of my favorites. Just that it takes some practice to get good at it.

3. Change the text into various colors

Muting the people means that those people’s stories won’t pop up in your news feed. Just hold on their story icon and then tap on ‘mute’ option that appears. Their icon will be pushed to all the way back so that you can go and unmute them whenever you want. Plus, they won’t know that you’ve muted them which is a bonus trick.

5. You can hide your stories from specific people
