Instagram announced today it’s launching the ability for users to pin up to three posts, including photos or videos, to the top of their profile grid. The company says the new feature will give creators more freedom to express themselves on their profiles. The official launch comes after Instagram confirmed to TechCrunch in April that it was function testing. Starting today, the ability to pin messages is available to all users around the world.

You can pin a post by going to a specific photo or video, clicking on the three dots in the top right corner and selecting “Pin to your profile”. Once you do, the message will appear at the top of your profile grid.

“Your profile is your space, so we’re looking at more ways to give you control over that experience,” said Instagram head Adam Mosseri in video published in their social networks information about the new feature.

The ability to pin a specific post to your profile is a welcome feature for users who want to highlight their favorite posts that may have been hidden somewhere further back in their photo grid. This feature can also be useful for creators who post frequently but want to highlight a specific post. Users currently have the ability to attach stories to their profile, but this new feature extends that ability to posts.

While previously you could highlight a post in a story and then pin that story to your profile, this new feature makes the process a lot easier and cleaner. It’s worth noting that the new feature works similarly to Twitter’s “Pin to Your Profile” feature and TikTok’s “Pinned Videos” option, both of which allow you to pin content to the top of your profile.

Today’s announcement came as Meta recently launched multiple features for their Reels products on both Facebook and Instagram. In particular, the Facebook video audio sync feature has been implemented and support has been added for longer Instagram videos of up to 90 seconds compared to previous versions. 60 seconds limit. The company has also introduced a few more creative tools, audio tools, templates, and other options to make Reels more attractive.
