Now you don’t have to worry about getting tagged on random giveaways on Instagram

The world we are living in is relying more and more on social media platforms every passing second. Well, we think that the social pressures and norms and the daily life chores somehow make our lives boring but a touch of social media platforms makes it all tolerating enough. We’ve seen the era of Yahoo messenger chats, we’ve been through skype calling eras as well and now we are living among the generation of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp and so many more.

Social media platforms provide a getaway for users from the pressures to behave according to society. We all sometimes feel overwhelmed due to the restrictions provided by society and to get away from it for a while social media proves to be the only solution.

The digital platforms provide more unique ways to communicate with the people we love living far away from us. People use social media platforms for a variety of reasons, some use it to generate revenue whereas some use to share their voice and make it heard. Some people use social media platforms to look for a variety of brands to purchase from whereas the majority of the marketers use social networks to engage with their potential customers. People nowadays don’t ask friends about some product detailed review instead they look for related videos on intenret and then decide whether to purchase it or not.

Instagram - the second largest social media platform also owned by Facebook is pretty famous among influencers. A variety of people who want to be heard and to bring influence in the life of their followers prefer Instagram instead of other social media apps.

Despite the fact that Instagram is one of the best digital platforms for influencers to share their content but sometimes it can also become annoying for the people. Nowadays, despite the efforts of Instagram to remove it there are still so many spam accounts on the platform manipulating users in various ways. For Instagram users, it pretty much gets annoying when they get tagged in giveaway posts by random Instagram accounts.

New feature by Instagram

Whereas the majority of those accounts are spam and they tag users randomly just to gain access to their information but some of the real unknown accounts also tag random accounts on their posts just to get more likes or comments and followers but not anymore.


According to a post from app researcher Jane Manchun Wong, Instagram is currently working on a new feature that would provide users an ability to prevent the tags by random accounts. With this new feature, Instagram users will have a specified setting in which they could allow tags from everyone or people they follow and users can also turn off the tags from other accounts too.

With this new feature, we won’t have to worry about getting tagged in random giveaways anymore. Although there is no official announcement from Instagram itself but if it is true we are really excited about it and looking forward to it to launch sooner.
