(9/26/17) Update It doesn’t look like this trick works anymore 🙁 Well that stinks. If I find another way, I’ll update this post.
(6/28/19) Update OMG!! I found a new solution that actually works. It’s in the form of a Chrome extension. Check it out here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/desktop-for-instagram/nlhjgcligpbnjphflfdbmabbmjidnmek/related?hl=en
Normally Instagram doesn’t let you post to it unless you are on the mobile app or using the browser on your mobile device. It’s frustrating, because sometimes you have images on your computer and it would be annoying to transfer them to your phone to post to Instagram. Well, did you know that there’s a little trick you can do to post to Instagram directly from your desktop? Here’s what you need to do.
Using The Chrome Browser, Right Click On Your Screen And Select “Inspect”
In The Lower Lefthand Corner, Select the Device Toolbar (the one that looks like a phone)
At the top of the inspect screen, click on the dropdown menu and select a smartphone from the list
You will now be able to view your Instagram as if it were on your smartphone, see the post button at the bottom?
How cool is that? This will also work in other browsers if they have an inspection tool as well. I hope this tip helps you with your social media marketing endeavors. If your business is in need of internet marketing in NJ, or any other areas nationwide, contact me now for a free quote.
