With over 1 Billion users, Instagram is rivaling Facebook to become the most popular social media platform. With that large of a user base, it’s safe to say you know a few people with an account. But what about searching for someone? Social media platforms allow you to search for people (their pages anyway). Instagram is no different. Taking into account Instagram has billions of users, it may be difficult to find someone specific, especially if you don’t know their handle. Is it easy to do an Instagram search for someone? Let’s find out.
How To Use Instagram Search To Find Someone
- Open Instagram
- Tap the magnifying glass icon
- Search by name, hashtag, or place
- View results
Accessing the search is simple enough.The question is whether the results will be what you were looking for. Instagram is designed more for you to find pictures than specific people.
Searching by name: This means looking for the person by their Instagram handle. If you know their real name, you may not find them as peoples’ usernames are not always their given name. A username could literally be anything. If you’re looking for someone you don’t know all that well, you might be scrolling through similar usernames for days.
Searching by tag: Practically every user uses #hashtags to tag their photo. This is a way of organizing photographs and categorizing photographs by idea. This allows people to search for targeted images. Like usernames, people can tag photos with whatever hashtags they want. However, searching using hashtags isn’t always accurate in finding someone. In fact, some photos are given a certain hashtag just so they’ll be seen rather than for accuracy. While it’s a great way to search for photos, it would be very difficult to find someone based solely on hashtags.
Searching by place: Instagram lets you search for posts from specific places. If you’re lucky enough, you know where the person you’re looking for hangs out, takes a lot of pictures, and posts them to Instagram. While not as roundabout as searching through hashtags, it might take some time before you find the exact person that you want.
Didn’t Find What You Were Looking For?
As stated before, Instagram is not really designed to search for people. For that, you’re better off using a site designed to do just that. Kiwi Searches makes it easy to find exactly who you’re looking for on Instagram. Simply do a person search or reverse phone number search and wait for the results. There’s no need to wade through semi-related hashtags or following a trail of tagged restaurants just to find someone. The Kiwi Searches search bar makes it easy and simple.
Your search results could include:
- All Social Media Accounts
- Past and Current Addresses
- Education and Work History
- Siblings and Aliases
- Criminal and Financial History
- And Much More!
If you’re looking to find someone specific, you’re much better off using a program designed for just that. Why waste time searching through a sea of hashtags when the information you want is available at the click of a button? Get the accurate information you need without having to sort through dozens and dozens of poorly tagged images.
