Now you can see the exact month, day and year your images and videos were posted on Instagram. Every social media manager I know is doing cartwheels over this update.
To see your timestamps, simply head to the App Store and update to the latest version of Instagram.
Prior to now, Instagram only showed the number of weeks it had been since the videos or photos were posted.
Now, instead of “14w” at the top right corner of the post, the full date (December 2, 2015, for example) is listed under the comments.
This is a very valuable update for those of us who work in the industry, especially when we’re tracking data or pulling information for clients and projects. Knowing that something happened 139 weeks ago is pretty useless. An exact date is much easier to calculate and will be super helpful when pulling analytics.
How do you feel about the update? Will it make your life a million times easier?
