Find and unlike Instagram posts you've liked to correct what you see in the feed

Likes are the driving element of Instagram. Each user keeps track of their number. The more likes you get, the happier is your heart.

Based on the evaluated posts, your Instagram feed is compiled: accounts that you interact with actively are shown more often. In particular, likes are one of the criteria for the formation of advertising.

Therefore, it is no surprise if you liked an Instagram photo with pugs a couple of days ago, and now you see an account of pug breeders in the feed. Read more about Instagram algorithms in our article.

If you don't like posts that you see in your Instagram feed, look into the liked photos section and check whether you liked photos/videos that you're not interested in.

Only you can see Instagram posts you liked. This information is in the private section of your account. It means, only you can view it. So, if you want to find a photo or video again, or show it to someone, do these 4 following steps.

How to see posts you've liked on Instagram

You can see your liked posts on Instagram only in the app. There is no such feature to find and view them in the browser version.

02. Go to Settings.

03. Select Account.

04. Find Posts you've liked.

Done! Now you can see Instagram posts that you liked.

If you are one of those users who like each Instagram post, you better learn about Instagram limits.

Another way to save Instagram posts without liking them

Due to the unlimited number of publications kept in the liked section, it's easy to lose an important or interesting post. We offer to try another Instagram feature — Instagram Collection. You can add Instagram pictures and videos you like there, and later, when you want to view them again, it will be way more easier.

Use it to save only valuable Instagram photos and videos. Then you won't have to search for the right one for a long time. It's easier to find and see posts in this section than liked Instagram posts. Organize publications in collections as you want.

  1. Tap the bookmark logo to save a post.
  2. Hit Save to Collection
  3. Give it a name
  4. Tap Save.

05. Tap the three lines menu icon in the upper-right corner to view all the posts you've saved.

06. Tap Saved.

Here you can see photos and videos in your Instagram Collections.

Only you can see your saved and liked posts on Instagram. If you want to share them with followers, then you can add them or their links to your link in bio page. This is a page that allows you to make your bio more than just 150 characters and a link. You can get a page for your IG bio on Taplink.

Link to the Instagram posts that you've liked or place the pictures and videos right on your link in bio page. So your followers can see and check out these posts too. You can also add text, music, maps and many more!

Let's recap

So, let's briefly sum up what we have learned. You can find and see every post that you liked on Instagram, they are saved in your account. Here is an instruction: Settings —> Account —> Liked posts. Information about the likes is available only to you. This feature works only in the app.

Have you started seeing irrelevant ads? Check your liked posts and make sure that you haven't accidentally liked posts dedicated to this topic. If you see such posts, unlike them.

If you plan to return to your favorite publications regularly, then use the Instagram Collection. It allows you to create collections, name them and put all the content you like there.
