How To On Notes In Instagram

Instagram, the popular photo and video sharing social media platform, is known for its ability to connect people across the globe. However, beyond its basic functions, Instagram also offers several features to make your social media experience more streamlined and personalized. One such feature is the ability to create notes. This blog will guide you through the process of creating notes on Instagram.

What are Instagram Notes?

Notes on Instagram aren’t like traditional notes; Instagram doesn’t provide a specific feature named ‘notes’. Instead, it’s a creative way of using some available features on Instagram, such as ‘Saved Posts’ or ‘Collections’. These features allow you to save, categorize, and add personal notes to any posts that you come across on Instagram.

How to Use Notes on Instagram?

Step 1. Navigate to the Post

The first thing you need to do is navigate to the post that you wish to save and add notes to. This can be any post that appears on your feed, or you can discover new posts through Instagram’s explore feature.

Step 2. Save the Post

Once you’ve found the post, click on the bookmark icon underneath it to save the post. You can find the bookmark icon on the bottom right side of the post.

Step 3. Create a Collection

After saving the post, you can add it to a collection to categorize your saved posts. To do this, go to your profile and click on the three horizontal lines in the top right corner. From there, navigate to the saved option and click on the plus symbol to create a new collection. You can name this collection as per your preference.

Step 4. Add Notes to the Post

Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t allow you to add notes directly to a post. However, you can use the ‘caption’ feature as a workaround. You can add your thoughts, ideas, or any notes you want to remember about the post in the caption while posting it on your feed. Please note that this will be visible to your followers.

Alternatively, if you want to keep your notes private, you can create a separate private account where you can post the saved posts along with your personal notes in the caption.


While Instagram doesn’t natively support notes, with a bit of creativity, you can still keep track of the posts that inspire you and jot down your thoughts about them. Just remember that Instagram is a public platform and any notes you make may be visible to others, depending on your privacy settings.
