Instagram today launched a small update for its iOS and Android apps, allowing users to save a post they're interested in to check out later. Underneath each post in the feed users will find a small bookmark icon, and tapping it will send it to a new Saved Post section in the Profile tab.

Saved Posts are private and only visible for you to view, and Instagram says that it'll help organize and memorialize each user's favorite videos and images from their feeds and the Explore tab. Any public profile can have their pictures saved for later by other users, but only followers of private accounts can save their posts.

When you stumble upon a funny video you want to remember, a new outfit you like or even inspiration for an upcoming vacation, you can now keep track of favorite posts right from your profile.

Over the past few months Instagram has been focusing on "pressure-free" updates and anti-harassment tools that let users navigate and post on the social network in a more relaxed environment. Coming soon, users will be able to turn the comments section of their posts off completely.

Instagram is available to download from the iOS App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I like that it is private. I still have a problem with ALL my followers seeing every photo I like or comment I make. Those should be options. There are children in my family that follow me so I have to stay PG all the time....I am NOT a PG person.
