Activity Status on Instagram

Okay, you've got the message!

  1. First things first, you get a notification, even if an application is not opened. Be careful and DO NOT TAP ON IT!
  2. Open your IG app and tap to the menu of Instagram Direct. So all the dialogues will be brought to the memory.
  3. Now, here's the most important action: turn off the Internet!
  4. And only when the Internet is turned off, you can open the desired dialogue and read the message. But be attentive, it's not over!
  5. Now just log out of your IG acc WITHOUT INTERNET connection.
  6. Only after that you can close the IG app and turn on the Internet. The message will be unseen and unread to the sender!

If you are asking a question like how to mark a direct message as unread on Instagram, I suppose you are a professional Instagram user, right? And I know that we all love likes, followers and comments on our IG accs. Does anyone know the silver bullet to reach popularity for personal or commercial accs?


Hashtags have always been and will stay one of the most accepted and widespread ways of acc promo on Instagram? It's free and the effect of use goes far into. Plus the method is widely used both by commercial accounts and personal ones.


The best selection of hashtags consists of high-frequent and low-frequent tags. The first ones guarantee wide outreach, and the second ones narrow the number of views and make the visitors more relevant.

Here's the list of high-frequent hashtags:
#instagood #instamood #picoftheday #photooftheday #photo #instafamous #photography #bestoftheday #insta #instalove #instadaily #shoutout #follow #instagrammers #followme #love #iphoneography #androidography #artistic #contests #hipster #igaddict #memes #funny #amazing #famous #trending #toptags #friends #me #instapost #life #blackandwhite #artforshare #artworld

Low-frequent hashtags need to be targeted, so let's make an example list for instagram blogger:
#blogger #blogger_ch #bloggerstyle #blogger_at #bloggerin #bloggers #blogger_de #bloggerspain #bloggermom #bloggerfashion #bloggerlife #blogger_muc #blogger_lu #bloggerlook #bloggeroutfit #travelblog #travelbloggeres #travelblogging #travelbloggers #travelblogs #travelblogger #travelbloggerlife #travelbloger #fashionblog #fashionblogg #fashionblogger_at #fashionbloggers #fashionblogger_de #fashionblogs #fashionblogging #fashionblogger #fashionbloger
