With this new feature, you can add an element of your contests strategy or simply be in touch with your audience in a more personal way. Far are the days where you got confused on replies and now you can do it on specific comments.

If you want to like one comment, this even easier. You have a heart shape on the right side of the comment that should be tapped once to turn red. You can do this in your own post’s comments and other people’s posts too. If someone likes your comment, you’ll get a notification immediately.

3. Guess who’s back?
Instagram’s sweetheart and world’s must famous Influencer is coming back! Yes, Kim Kardashian, the one and only who abandoned the Social Media after her infamous incident in Paris where she got robbed. Now, the famous reality star and wife of Kanye West has launched her first move on Instagram in months! Although it wasn’t from her personal account, the post took place on her merch verified account, @kimoji.
The account posted two outrageous videos of a girl’s butt and some pictures of boobs and another pair of butts wearing underwear. Of course, it couldn’t be the other way around. Therefore, the current ghost in Social Media marked a heart on these posts, and that’s pretty much a sign of life from her during these moths of absence.
More features are about to come, and surely we won’t miss Kim’s big return on her personal account. Keep in touch with us!
