You’ve probably heard about Instagram’s latest new feature announcement – the one that lets us save the posts we find interesting or inspiring in a private album within our Instagram accounts, without the original poster having any idea we’ve done so.

The amazing thing about this new feature on Instagram is the fact that we can now create mini galleries of inspiration for ourselves and our own Instagram posts. The tricky thing for businesses and marketers will be trying to figure out what makes an Instagram post save-worthy in the first place.
For the moment, there aren’t any analytics on saved posts, so we don’t have any idea if any of our posts have been saved or by how many people.
