Instagram finally lets you edit photo captions

Instagram-7

You can finally go back fix and all the typos in your Instagram captions.

The company rolled out an update Monday that adds the ability to change photo captions after they’re posted and adds new recommendations to the app’s Explore menu.

In what had long been frustrating for victims of autocorrect everywhere, the app didn’t allow users to tweak captions after a photo or video posted, forcing users to post corrections as a comment or delete and re-write the caption entirely.

“This has been one of the top requests that we’ve heard from the community, and we’re excited to finally bring it to you today,” Instagram wrote in a blog post.

To edit a caption, tap the menu button […] underneath a post and select edit. Edited captions will include a note indicating the post was edited when a user views the comments.

Instagram update
Instagram’s latest update adds the ability to edit captions and a new section to the Explore tab that surfaces recommendations of new accounts to follow.

Monday’s update also changed the recently revamped Explore tab to make it easier to find new accounts to follow.

The Explore menu, which surfaces popular posts, has now been split into two tabs: Photos and People. The Photos tab displays the same posts as the Explore menu did in previous versions of the app — photos and videos popular within your circle of friends as well as those trending among the greater Instagram community. The new People tab displays recommendations of new accounts to follow, including people you’re connected to on other social networks, along with a preview of some of their most recent posts.
