(Pocket-lint) – Instagram’s latest feature has started rolling out and it lets you pin up to three posts or reels to the top of your profile.
This new feature works similar to the pinning feature on TikTok or Twitter, where posts stay at the top of your feed as if they were your most recent content.
You can pin a post by opening it, tapping the three dots in the top right, and selecting “Pin to your profile” – it’s that easy.
Returning to your Instagram profile grid, the pinned post will take up the top left spot of your grid and display a small white pin icon above it.

The new feature has been in the works for some time and was first spotted in January by Alessandro Paluzzi.
Following the rumour, Meta confirmed that it was testing the feature in April this year.
Now it seems to be rolled out everywhere, and we got to try it out ourselves.
It will be interesting to see how this feature will be used. Of course, you will be able to highlight your personal favorites on your profile, but we can imagine that it will also be used to create split-image banners on the grid.
