Instagram now lets you cancel story posts mid-upload
In Instagram’s latest update, you can now delete stories mid-upload. This could be a helpful way to catch mistakes before they become viewable in the app.
Now, there’s a nifty button right in the Stories upload flow that lets you halt a Story from going live once you’ve hit that “Share” button. And let’s be real, any social media manager will tell you, it’s a lifesaver more times than we’d like to admit.
We’ve all been there – you pop in the wrong link, catch a last-minute spelling blunder, or, oops, forget to tag a profile. This new feature is like your safety net for those “oh no” moments we all encounter.
These slip-ups that are bound to happen, especially when you’re posting multiple Stories and other pieces of content each day. That’s why having the ability to swiftly pause the upload and fix these blunders will be a total game-changer.
The update is available in the latest version of the app.
New Threads update lets you hide like and share counts
In the most recent Threads update, the app now allows you to conceal both Like and Share counts on your posts within the app.
With the updated feature, you can now choose “Hide like and share counts” directly from the post detail screen. Unlike before, where you could only hide Like counts on their own.
Furthermore, you have the option to set this as the default for all your posts in the app by going to “Settings” and then “Privacy.” Just a heads up, if you do this, it will also affect your Instagram posts.
This update is also available in the latest version of the app.
