Instagram is one of the social media channels that keep bringing changes after some time, and the same is the case with the feature called ‘Instagram comments.’ Instagram made this feature available to everyone back in July last year.
All the Instagram users out there, whether with a private or public account, may use this tool to pin their favorite comments to the top of their posts. When you pin a comment to one of your posts, it displays at the top of the comments area, regardless of how many likes or replies it receives.
This is undoubtedly an excellent feature to highlight the most engaging comments that people make on your posts. Just like Instagram, you may also pin your comments on your YouTube videos. At the same time, you may also pin a Snapchat conversation and may also pin messages on WhatsApp and Facebook.
Is it possible to pin your own comments on Instagram posts?
There is no doubt that pinned comments on Instagram posts is super easy to implement, as well as using it allows you to value your followers. Unlike YouTube, you are not able to pin your own comments on the posts you make on your Instagram account.
This is because Instagram only enables users to pin other users’ comments so that they can show up at the top of the comment thread. On the other hand, you may also pin your comments on buy Instagram comments.
On the other hand, if you try to pin your own comments, delete and reply are only the two available options. A large number of Instagram influencers and users choose to follow up to posts by posting comments.
Although you may always edit the post anytime you want, your own pinned comments at the top of a conversation can also make a big difference. Unluckily, there is nothing you may do about the inability of your own Instagram comments.
At the same time, there is no workaround to get this working by anyone, regardless of the fact how many followers and engagements you have on your account.
