It doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to Instagram, or if you’ve been using it for years, it’s never too late. A profile page for Instagram is much easier than other social media platforms if you are familiar with the basics.

We’ll be focusing on Instagram Highlights this time. You’ve probably seen Instagram Stories highlighted in circles on people’s profiles. We’ll show you how to add them to your profile page in this tutorial. This tutorial will explain what Instagram Highlights are and why you should use them. It also shows you how to make your own.

What are Instagram’s Highlights?

Instagram Highlights are stories from your stories archive that you select to display on your profile page. You can save your Instagram Story in one of your Highlights to keep it on your profile page for as long as you want.


You won’t see the number of views or viewers for your archived stories once you have added them to Highlights. Once you add your Highlights, you won’t see the number of people who have viewed them. This is still a great way to keep your best stories on your profile.

Instagram Highlights can include both video and photo stories. There is a limit of 100 Highlights. You can also add as many Highlights as you wish to your Instagram account. To see any Highlights, not on the screen, the viewers simply have to scroll left.
