HOW TO: Multiple Instagram Accounts

One of the best pieces of news I heard this week was that Instagram now allows you to add, switch and manage multiple accounts at once! For some of you, you might ask why anyone needs more than one Instagram account. Others, especially Bloggers, Business Owners, Social Media Marketers, may need to have separate personal and business Instagram accounts.

On my part, I manage the Instagram feeds for Berry Dakara, Cakesiena and African Naturalistas. I admit, I haven't done as well as I could have for some of the other accounts partly because I was too lazy to worry about logging on and off Instagram several times a day. So this is perfect for me, and I decided to share a quick guide on how to add and switch between multiple Instagram accounts.



1. Go to your Profile Page, and click on the 3 dots on the upper right corner.


2. It takes you to your Options page, where you will scroll down and click on "Add Account."


3. You'll be prompted to login to the other account you want to add.



4. The account has been added and you'll be logged into the new account. You will now see a drop-down button next to your account name on your profile page.


5. On the bottom right, you can clearly see which account you're currently using. To switch between accounts though, click on the drop-down menu on your profile name and select whichever account you want to use at that time.


 6. To log out of any or all accounts, go back to your Options page, scroll down and select your choice.

VOILA!

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram, and share this post with others who may need it!
