A Twitter user Salman Memon has shared a glimpse of the feature. In the post, we can see the picture has multiple options, where it has the “Pin to your Profile” option. The other photo shows the three pinned posts at the top of the grid.

A similar feature is available on Twitter to pin tweets and on Tiktok to pin videos. The feature on Instagram has been in work for months now.

According to TechCrunch, a spokesperson from Meta said, “We’re testing a new feature that lets people feature posts on their profile.”

The ability to pin a post can be helpful for users who want to highlight their favorite posts. This feature will help those who post regularly, for example, content creators. As their favorite posts are buried somewhere down in the photo grid.

Though you can highlight a post in the Story and then pin the story to your profile. This new feature will make the process easier and more straightforward.

A reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi has earlier shared a glimpse of the feature in January. It was in a testing phase, and now within a month, there’s an announcement of the limit of pinning three posts.

Instagram is not only testing the pin posts feature. The social media giant is also the ‘Recent’ tab option in the hashtags section. The content is now seen under the “top” and “reels” tab.
