Instagram is an online photo-sharing, video-sharing social media site. Launched in 2010, Instagram currently has over 400 million monthly active users. Of those, 75% reside outside of the United States. There are over 3.5 billion likes per day on the over 40 billion photos shared per day!
Last week a student in my St. Lawrence College class (OFAD24) asked:
“How do you untag yourself from photos on Instagram?”
One of the features of Instagram is that users can tag other users in photos and videos, like photos of your boyfriend/girlfriend, vacation and family photos, inappropriate gifs, or whatever crosses your Instagram feed.
However, relationships may sour, photos may be a bit too inappropriate, or it just may be time to clean-up your profile.
Here is how to untag yourself from Instagram photos:
From your Instagram Profile, tap the ‘My Tagged Photos’ icon
Tap a photo to untag, then tap the ellipsis in the bottom-right of the photo
Tap ‘Photo Options’ then tap ‘Hide from My Profile’ or choose ‘Remove Me from Photo’
That’s it! Now you can untag yourself from unwanted Instagram photos.
