Instagram will forever be remembered as the most visual social media network. Unlike Facebook or Twitter, you can’t publish your thoughts in words on Instagram. Every post on IG must either be a picture or a video.
This unique approach has practically forced every user that wants to use the social networking site to post images and videos of themselves and what they are up to.
In turn, since Instagram added the feature where you can add the location of your posts, users can now browse posts from other users from specific locations all over the world. Be it hotels, airports, restaurants, resorts, or concerts, you can do it through Instagram.
How to Browse Photos From a Specific Location on Instagram
Do you want to look up a restaurant or hotel you’ll visit soon? Or perhaps one of the people you follow on Instagram has posted a picture of an awesome place you want to visit, and you want to know where it is?
Below, we will show you how to search for a known location as well as how to figure out the location of someone’s post (provided the user has made it known to Instagram).
Searching for a Location and Browsing Photos From That Place
If you know the location that you want to search up so you can see all of the photos people have posted of the place, doing so is actually quite easy. Simply follow the steps below:
- Head over to Instagram and tap on the search and explore button (the magnifying glass)
- Then tap “Search” in the search bar at the top
- Type the name of the location, then tap the search button
- Tap “Places” below the search bar and a list of all locations with that name will come up
- Then find and select the place you want to see posts for
Browsing Photos From a Location One of the People You Follow Has Been At
Has one of the people you follow on Instagram posted an awesome photo of somewhere cool? It’s happened to all of us, and many times, we’re left wondering where that is. But the thing is, if you don’t really know the person, it can be quite awkward to ask where that photo is taken.
However, there is a way to check the location of an Instagram post, as long as the user behind it has provided it in the post.
To check this, head over to the photo you want to find out the location of and look right above the photo, beneath the username of the person. If they have added the location, it will be written out there.
If the location was added to the post, simply click on it, and Instagram will take you to that location and show you all the photos that people have taken in that location in the past, starting with the most popular photos followed by the most recent ones.
