Instagram has recently added a new feature that can target the audience of Pinterest! The users of Instagram can now save posted photos and videos in a private collection, just how Pinterest users save photos on their boards. Saving posts allow users a way to bookmark posts they want to reference to in the future, like places to travel or products to buy. This change to Instagram builds on a feature that was introduced in December which lets users save posts from friends. Instagram is owned by Facebook. Instagram said that 46% of its users have used this new feature to save at least one post since the feature was introduced. Users can now create many collections of saved Instagram posts and choose a name for them. Right now, collections are private. This means no one can view the collection apart from the user who created it. On Pinterest, the boards can be shared publicly.
