Meta-owned social media app Instagram is working on a feature known as Public Collections, according to an alleged screenshot of the feature shared by Alessandro Palozzi. The leaker and reverse engineer has a history of releasing details about underdeveloped Instagram and Threads features.
According to the screenshot, the unpublished public collections feature will give users a choice to make their collections visible to everyone. However, Palozzi added that in the case of a private account only the followers of that account will be able to view a public collection. As of now, there’s no word on when (or if) said feature will see the light of day.
For those who don’t know, the Collections feature launched in 2017 already allows users to organize photos, videos and reels they save in the app. Users can organize the saved content in multiple folders or collections and name them accordingly.
You can tap the bookmark button in the lower left corner of a post to save it. Then to access them later, go to your profile page > tap the hamburger menu > tap Save. Earlier this year, Instagram added another feature called Collaborative Collections that allows the user and their friends to organize posts in a shared space.
A few things to keep in mind are that you cannot share an already existing private collection with others. On the other hand, a shared collection cannot be set to private once created. Anyone who can view a shared collection can also delete it, regardless of who created it.
in the latest news. Meta is expected to launch ad-free subscriptions for Instagram and Facebook in the EU region. This comes after the company was fined $1.3 billion by the European Union for sending personal data to the United States.
