Find out the benefits of the keyword search feature with Instagram

For several months now the social media platform Instagram has been bringing new features to their users. Multiple features have already been added to this platform, including reels, anti-bullying. This time they have brought a feature which will make it easier to search something on Instagram from now on. Before that, if you wanted to search something on Instagram, you had to search with hashtags. Or this facility could be obtained by entering the username or location. But this time Instagram is launching the Keyword Search feature. As a result, even if a post does not have a hashtag, you can see if you search with any keyword in that post.

How to do keyword search?

Suppose you want to search pictures of food on Instagram. For this you have to search with #foodphotography or any other such hashtag. If you search this way, only the posts that have this hashtag will appear in the search results. Moreover, if you have an account with the same name on Instagram, you will also see those accounts.

However, now that the keyword search feature does not have this hashtag in a post, you will still get the appropriate results if you search only for special words. This will make it easier to search for anything on Instagram.

A spokesperson for Instagram said that the keyword will be searched with the help of various topics like type of content, time of posting, captions etc. In addition, machine learning methods will be used to provide high quality content. For now, posts can only be viewed in Grid View.

The new feature is currently available in the US, Ireland, New Zealand, the UK, Canada and Australia. Currently this feature can only be used in English. It is hoped that this feature will be rolled out to other regions soon.

Do you use dating apps to find people you like?  Refrain from doing these things

At present, many people are using different dating apps to find the people in their minds. In just a few minutes, these virtual apps let users find new friends. These apps are definitely fun, but like all other online services, they have some disadvantages. The most dangerous of which is falling into the trap of various scammers and stockers. Many people use these apps with confidence, thinking that there is no harm in providing personal information to a stranger. But users may unknowingly use their data for various purposes. Today in this post we will tell you what you need to keep in mind while using dating app.

1. Social media account attachment with dating apps

Many users associate social media accounts with dating apps. But this is not at all safe, especially if users are very active on social media. In this case, scammers can easily customize phishing messages by tracking your Facebook, Instagram pages. For example, if you are an animal lover and you have pictures and videos of various animals on Facebook and Instagram, scammers can send phishing messages asking for donations to save a helpless animal.

2. The same profile photo used everywhere

In this case, we recommend that you always use a separate profile photo for dating applications. Because any stalker, through the Google Image Reverse Search feature, can track your online activity. For example, if you set the same profile photo on social media profiles, LinkedIn and other websites, then put the same picture in the dating application, then the miscreants can only google your picture and browse your LinkedIn profile or other information.

3. Using the same password

Using primary email IDs, phone numbers or the same password in dating applications is not secure in terms of data protection. It’s best to use a different email ID and not a phone number to sign in to dating apps. Also, always use a different password for dating apps that you don’t normally use in any other account.

4. Excessive personal sharing

Don’t share personal information like your school name, college, office, surname, work profile etc. in dating applications. Because scammers can track you by collecting this information. Also refrain from sharing your date of birth and address on public profiles. Your information can be easily stolen using this information. Also, do not give any updates about your financial status in dating applications.

5. Profile verification

Many dating sites or marriage websites request to upload official documents like passport, voter ID card, Aadhaar card to verify the user’s profile. Remember, this data is saved by the website or app creators. The official ID details of the user can be easily accessed if they are hacked in any way.
