So, let us ask you a question.

How many of you often get creeped out that you are talking about something with a friend, and then the next day, you see an advertisement that is literally, exactly about what you talked about the day before.

When you post something on Instagram, and someone else shares that post on their story, you’re actually able to track the number of people that have actually reshared or reposted that post.

We know that sounds like super confusing, so We are just going to show you.

Capture_every_moments_1 is an Instagram page which is related to photography where Harshit click wonderful photos and post on this page.

You can book a photograph appointment by going on his page.

Now, if you tried to click those three buttons and you do not see this option where it says View Story Reposts, that means that no one has reshared your post.

When someone is following an account that is in a very similar niche to you, what will generally happen is, at the bottom, once they hit Follow, Instagram will actually suggest a bunch of other accounts that that person should be following.

By checking this account, you will also be included.

What you also want to know is, by checking this account, when someone also follows you, your account will also push out some recommendations for them as well.

If you decide to opt-out of this, this will not only mean that you won’t show up in other people’s recommendations, but other people also won’t show up in yours.

So, that’s something that you might want to consider.
