Almost every second teenager you’ll see on the street has an Instagram account. Instagram is more than just a social media platform; it’s an unchangeable habit. It’s the thing everyone’s doing, and nobody wants to miss out on it. Still, when you really create an account, you’ll quickly realize that it’s all teen trends and fan clubs. The reels feature is great if you’d like to aimlessly waste your time on something you don’t even really like.
So, why do people even use the platform if Instagram is so unremarkable? After all, no one needs to have the app on their smartphones, do they? To answer this question, you need to understand how Instagram works.
When Facebook hit its peak, Instagram was a new platform. While it was largely loved by the millennials, the baby boomers were still married to Facebook. This slowly changed as more and more Gen Z users started using Instagram. Facebook was outdated and filled with older people to attract the younger generation.
Of course, creators, influencers, brands, and even celebrities turned to where a more engaging audience lies. Instagram slowly became a highly mainstream platform. Campaigns like the Black Lives Matter movement and the empowerment of the LGBTQ+ community were all supported by Instagram.
While the reels feature isn’t exactly good as it wastes the time of the users’, it does the job. Users are hooked to the variety of content that shows up on the reels. There’s also the Explore option that shows customized content for each user. This instills an unconscious feeling of self-importance in the users’ minds.
At this point, you can find anyone on Instagram; it has literally become the new Facebook. Even if someone wanted to uninstall the app, they wouldn’t be able to because it has built way too much dependency.
What will you do while you wait in the grocery line or walk your dog? How will you show everyone pictures of the aesthetic café you went into last week? How will people you’ve just met contact you? Surely you can’t think of giving everyone your phone number, right?
So, Instagram has gotten where it is after a lot of strategic planning. Even if it has glitches or a few issues, it’s unlikely to affect the platform’s popularity.
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about how you can restore comments after Instagram after unblocking.
How to Restore Comments on Instagram After Unblocking
Friends are the people we love the most but also the ones we fight with the most. Not because we’re mad at them or something they did, but because we want them to do good by themselves and only accept the very best, right?
Sometimes, tough love is important. So, if you’ve blocked your best friend on Instagram and are just unblocking them now, we totally understand. If you want to restore all those lovely comments they’ve made on your posts, don’t worry; we’ve got you!
We’re sorry to say that once you’ve blocked someone, all their likes and comments disappear from your profile will disappear. Unblocking the user still won’t bring back all that engagement.
But hey, seeing as they’re your best friend, we’re sure they won’t mind commenting on all your amazing pictures again!
How to turn off commenting on Instagram
Posting a picture on Instagram is fun for some people, but a bit stressful for others, especially because of the comments section.
If you have a public account, you know firsthand how many creepy users comment inappropriate things on random posts. Answering them is the digital equivalent of a headache, so users generally have to ignore them, even if they don’t want to.
And if you have a private account, it’s a different type of trouble. All your best friends and family are commenting endearing things, and it isn’t easy to thank them all in a unique way.
After all, there are only so many replies to “beautiful,” don’t you think?
Well, thankfully for all Instagram users, there’s an option to turn off comments on your posts! That way, you don’t have to worry about inappropriate comments or replying to people.
Here’s how to turn off commenting on Instagram posts
Step 1: Launch Instagram on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: The first screen you’ll land on is the Home page. At the bottom right corner, tap on the small icon of your profile picture.
Step 3: This will bring you to Your profile. Tap on the post on which you want to turn off the comments.
Step 4: At the top right corner of your post, you’ll see a three dots icon. Tap on it.
Step 5: A pop-up menu appears with several actionable options. Among them, tap on the fourth option called Turn off commenting.
There you go! Now you know exactly how to get rid of annoying comments!
Don’t worry; all your comments are still there! If you ever want all your previous comments to show on your profile, all you need to do is go to the same post’s options again.
This time on the menu, you’ll see the option called Turn on commenting. Tap on it, and all your comments will be restored.
In the end
As we end this blog, let’s recap all we’ve discussed today.
We’ve all blocked and then unblocked at least a couple of users on Instagram. It’s the quickest and easiest way to convey annoyance with cool and casual nonchalance. Of course, once they’ve understood their mistake and apologized, you can unblock them just as quickly.
The only problem is that when you block someone, all traces of their engagement disappear from your profile. Their comments and likes can’t be restored. All you can do is ask them to do it again. Even if they think that’s childish, they can always comment on your future posts, right?
If you’ve been dealing with negative or overwhelming comments, we can help you with that, too! All you need is to turn off commenting on your posts, and you won’t have to worry anymore. You can also restore those comments anytime you want!
