Instagram is testing Profile Visits

Profile Visits

Instagram has now come up with a new feature, Profile Visits – which can unveil how many visitors have examined your profile.

Instagram has rolled out  a new feature called Profile Visit. This feature will tell you how many people have checked  your profile in past few days . But there is a barrier. This feature will not reveal the name of those who visited your profile.

Profile Visit feature is similar to what Linkedin has. But in Linkedin you can see the viewer’s name unless the chose to keep their visit private. .

According to The Independent, this feature is not accessible for all users as the company is testing the feature functionally right now. The new feature was spotted by Matt Navarra, who tweeted the screenshot of the feature.

Few days back, Instagram also launched a feature that shows last seen on Instagram direct, however the option to turn it off is also available.

Instagram also introduced GIFs stickers for stories earlier this week.  Users can add the  creative feature to their photos and stories to make it more fun.

Up until now, users could only see the viewers on their Instagram Stories – the addition of Profile Visits could change the game because we all know how addictive it was back on Orkut (remember the good old days).

Let’s see what other updates Instagram is to roll out soon.
