With Instagram’s algorithmic feed, there’s a chance that you may not see posts from some of the accounts you follow. However, you can avoid this by turning on post notifications for specific accounts. By doing so, you’ll receive a notification each time a specific account shares a new post. Our guide will show you how to turn on post notifications for an account you follow.
