Instagram is one of the most popular social media apps around, where millions of users go to post photos and videos every day.

If you use Instagram you may think you know everything here is about the app, but there are actually a few sneaky tricks you might not know about the app.

One trick allows you to see how many people have saved your photos – a good indicator to see which of your posts have been a hit.

To see the number of people who have saved your photos, you’ll need to switch to an Instagram Business Profile.

This is pretty straightforward to do. Go to Settings and tap ‘Switch to Business Profile’, where you’ll be prompted to connect to a Facebook business page and choose a category for your profile.

Finally, you’ll be asked to add an email address, phone number or personal address (you only need to fill one of these in).

Thankfully, if you’re not a fan , you can revert back to a personal profile at any time!

Once you’ve set up your Business Profile, it’s pretty simple to see the number of people who have saved your photos.

Go on the photo that you’d like to check, and tap ‘View Insights’. Instagram will then show you a breakdown of the number of times the photo has been saved, as well as the number of users it reached and the number of profile visits you received off the back of it.

Unfortunately, the insights won’t show you exactly who has saved the photos.

Aside from seeing the number of users who have saved your photos, there are several other perks to having a Business Profile.

Instagram explained: “With a professional account, you'll be able to access business features and Instagram Insights. These tools can help you understand who is engaging with your business on Instagram.

“You also have the option to display or hide your business category and contact information on your profile.”
