Reels are undoubtedly one of the most engaging forms of content on Instagram. Ever since they’ve made an entrance on the platform of Instagram, they’ve managed to capture the attention of a large crowd of Instagrammers.
While the reels have a striking similarity with TikTok videos, they’ve surpassed the latter in terms of both popularity and creativity. And as it should be, reels have more scope for creative freedom and have, therefore, kept the users glued to them.
Have you ever posted a reel and then later remembered you needed to tag others in it, too? Well, if you have, know that you’re alone. This is a common problem many of our readers have been coming to us with. Today, we’ll show how to fix this problem by tagging people on a reel after posting it. Let’s get started!
How to Tag Someone on Instagram Reels After Posting? A step-by-step process
Let’s address your concern without further ado. We understand that it’s easy to miss out on small technicalities like tagging your friends in the excitement of creating a posting reel. In fact, Instagram understands it as well.
It is because the platform understands such conundrums faced by its users that it has provided us with ways of mending such tiny errors on the app itself. Yes, it’s completely possible to tag someone on a reel you posted on Instagram.
Below, we’re going to describe the step-by-step process of doing so elaborately. It’s not a very complicated one, especially if you’re paying attention.
Now, let’s get started:
Step 1: Launch the Instagram mobile app on your smartphone.
From the Home tab that you first land on, navigate to a column of 5 icons arranged at the bottom of your screen.
The rightmost icon on this column will be your profile picture’s thumbnail. Give it a tap.
Step 2: You’ll find yourself on your Profile tab next. Here, below your profile picture, username, bio, and Highlights section, you’ll find three icons arranged in a column:
l A grid icon for your posts (and reels, if you don’t choose to remove them from here).
l A reel icon for a separate Reels section.
l A tag icon for the Tagged section – where all posts and reels in which you’ve been tagged are displayed.
Tap on the icon in the middle – the reel icon – to view all the reels you’ve posted so far in one place.
Step 3: As the Reels section is displayed on your screen, scroll through it until you find the reel in which you forgot to tag someone.
If it’s a recent mistake, it’s likely that one of the first three reels has to be the one, so you wouldn’t need to scroll for long.
