Non-Instagram Subscriber-to-Instagram Subscriber Interface

An Instagram subscriber (correct term?) displayed photographs from her Instagram page (correct term?) on a TV news program recently [the photos had "Instagram: @(the person had what I guess was her "username" appear here)" in a corner of each photo shown]. I'm not an Instagram subscriber, but I would like to see the photos again. Is there a way I can do that w/o becoming a subscriber? If not, (1) how would I become a subscriber, and (2) how would I attempt to see the photos once I subscribed to the service?

Hello Chuck, if you made a note of the @username, then you could attempt to do a google search, for example: Instagram @username.

Their page should appear, you can then click on this. You should be able to browse the first handful of posts, however after a certain amount you will be prompted to create an Instagram account if you want to continue.

If you already have a Facebook account, then you can Log In From Facebook, or simply Create an Instagram Account.

As for following someone, you can only follow an account once you have created your own account. Go onto their page and select "follow". You will now see their posts in your feed whenever you connect to Instagram. You won't need to go to their specific page each time either, their content will appear alongside other pages that you may decide to follow.

Hope this helps,




Thanks very much for your "how-to" to the photos I wanted by creating an Instagram acct. and "following" the photo poster.
