    Highlights of the Story

    • With so many random trends happening on Instagram, the latest one is sharing the First Picture that you’ve liked on Instagram.
    • Instagram “Your Activity” section let you see such data.
    • Here is a guide to see the first post that you liked on Instagram.

    Every week, I get a short video or a catalog of photos and videos I captured on Google Photos. For years earlier. Facebook shows posts you shared last, 2 or 3 years ago that you can share on your wall for others to see. Just like Facebook, Instagram is used by more than 2 billion active users with millions of people posting about their daily lives. Although it doesn’t have a feature to show your memories, it has a suite of features that you can use to find posts, comments, activities, likes, reels, photos, videos, and other assets you produced ever since you created the Instagram handle. 

    One of the latest fads on the social media platforms are trends that can easily go viral be it the ‘My money don’t jiggle it folds’, or ‘Dalgona Coffee’, among others. People follow trends on Instagram and other social media platforms which keep on changing constantly. One of the latest trends that Instagram users are following is sharing the first ever post they had liked after joining Instagram. It has become a culture among millennials and Gen-Z groups who reprise their memories by sharing the posts they had liked years earlier. 

    Instagram doesn’t just let you share photos, videos, reels, and whatnot, it keeps track of your activities that you can get your hands on when needed. It is a suite of built-in features where you can check out comments you made. It could be cringy, emotional, cute, or something out of this world, and yet, Instagram saves all this information that you can easily view at your will.

    What are the limitations on visiting previously liked posts?

    Apparently, you can’t just find all the posts and videos you ever liked in the “Your Activity >> Interactions >> Likes” section. There’s a limitation of 300 recent posts according to the Help Page on Instagram. If you have blown over the 300 posts limit and say there are 301 posts at the moment, you won’t be able to visit the first liked post. Instead, it will be replaced by the second liked post on Instagram in ascending order. 

    It goes without saying, the more posts you have over the 300 posts limit, the number will be offset from the earliest posts. Apart from that, Instagram records like made via the Instagram app on your phone as well as on the web. However, you can’t revisit these posts on the web, it’s only available on the phone at the moment. 

    The ‘Your Activity >> Interactions >> Likes’ section will show posts that you have liked or double-tapped. It means any posts where you left a comment but didn’t like will not be available here. 

    Why do you want to visit previously liked posts?

    Of course, it’s not just the trends that you could be following to find previously liked posts. You could be trying to find previously liked posts to find some relevant information or account. It could be a helpful caption or comments in a post that you found insightful and liked to post. It could be a contest, recipe, workout routine, tutorial, products, and giveaways among others that you could be searching for. 

    What else can you do on Instagram?
