The Instagram Update We’ve All Been Waiting For
Whether you’re the owner of a small business or whether you’re a social media marketer, Instagram will soon have you kissing its virtual pictorial feet. If you haven’t already heard, the photo-sharing platform giant has finally come around to giving its users something they’ve been begging for for a long time: switching accounts without signing out.
As a Small business owner or social media marketer, you may have had to manage more than one Instagram account; you either juggled your own account and your corporate account, or you juggled multiple corporate accounts for various clients.
Instagram made it cumbersome, time-consuming and un-fun.
So each time you wanted to switch between accounts you had to sign out of the account you were using and sign in with the account you wanted to update. Painful, to say the least.
Instagram finally listened
Instagram finally announced that it will be possible to switch accounts by simply tapping on your username – no more having to sign in, no more having to sign out. What a relief.
So now you can have up to 5 Instagram accounts which you can quickly, efficiently and painlessly switch between. This new version will be gradually rolled out for both iOS and Android and be available through the App Store and Google Play.
Instagram No Holds Barred
If you’re a small business owner, not being able to switch easily between Instagram accounts may have held you back from making the most of Instagram. If that’s the case, there are no more excuses. With Instagram’s new feature, you can now manage your corporate account and even create additional accounts for different products that you sell or to test out different branding messages .
Social media managers are excited about the ability to now easily manage the Instagram accounts for multiple clients without the hassle of signing in and out each time they want to share a photo.
And everyone can now enjoy posting to their personal Instagram accounts again!

Now that you are saving all of this extra time from not logging in and out of your accounts all day, it’s time to focus on your Instagram marketing strategy.
