Instagram update lets you organize saved posts into collections

You can crate collections form the old posts also.

It is jolly easy to create a collection from your already saved posts, too.

Created as an add-on to its bookmarking tool that was released over the winter, "collections" allows users to organize the posts they save into private groups in their Profile tabs.

The collections will show up under the saved posts tab on your profile, visible only to you. Unlike Pinterest, however, Instagram collections are private and can not be seen by other users.

It seems like Instagram is having a bit of an identity crisis.

The collections are now only available for private consumption, which is a bit of a shame. Whereas Pinterest boards are public, Instagram's collections will be private - though tech writer Chris Welch at The Verge wonders if this is temporary, noting, "Maybe it's only a matter of time before Instagram really encroaches on Pinterest's territory and adds the option to make collections public". Instagram believes that nearly half of its total user base has saved at least one post. In a new update, introduced Monday, you can now save posts into private collections, which only you can see.

Instagram already allows you to bookmark a post if you want to view it later but it wasn't possible to sort those bookmarks into different categories.

Basically, they're just folders for your saved images. Presumably, these users will be happy to now categorize these saved photos. For Instagram itself, the app engagement was likely to have been affected in a positive manner as users would come back to visit the posts they admired so in the first place.

Instagram comes with a nifty little feature that lets you bookmark photos for viewing later.

'You'll be able to see the artist's username when you tap the sticker, so you can learn more about their unique artwork'. Instagram suggested the feature will help people keep track of things they want to do after browsing their feed.
