How to See What Someone Else Likes on Instagram

Can you check someone else's Instagram likes? Can I see what I liked in the past? Can you be notified when someone posts an update? Can I share their content on my own Instagram? These are some of the many questions we get here at TechJunkie and one of my roles here is to answer as many of them as possible.

Today is Instagram and I'm going to answer these four questions and maybe a few more.

Even if you've been using Instagram for a while, there are still new things to learn. It is a simple platform at first sight. It's only when you start exploring under the skin that you realize how important it is.

Can you check someone else's Instagram likes?

As of October 2022, you can no longer see someone else's activity from the Instagram app.

Before, it was easy to do that. All you had to do was go to your likes, select the Next tab and you would see people's recent activity. But Instagram ultimately saw this as a breach of their personal information, so they dropped the feature altogether.

You can still see someone else's Instagram likes, but that's a huge problem.

If you're wondering if this person liked something from a particular person's profile:

  1. Click on that person's profile
  2. Select "Following" to see all the profiles they follow
  3. Click on a profile they follow
  4. See the likes of this profile post to see if the person liked any of them

Note this fact: this person can hide their activity and make it impossible to see what they are doing. They can do this by disabling "show activity status" in the settings. This will prevent anyone from seeing what they are doing on Instagram.

Some apps from the Google Play Store and App Store allow you to track someone's activity. However, many of these apps will likely require payment. Not all of these apps are legit either.

Can I see what I liked in the past?

If you liked something recently and wanted to go back to study it further but forgot about it, there is a complete list of your likes that you can refer to if it is not well in view. It's a useful feature that can get you back to a message quickly.

  1. Select your Instagram profile from the app.
  2. Select the menu icon and select Settings.
  3. Click on "Account"
  4. Scroll down until you see "Posts you've liked" then click on it

You should see a list of posts you've liked recently. You can display them according to your needs or postpone them if you wish.

Can you be notified when someone posts an update?

If you follow someone you have a special affinity with or think their posts are cool, you can set up notifications to notify you when they post. It's a simple way to get the most out of Instagram and make sure you're always up to date with what's going on.

  1. Open Instagram and select that user's profile.
  2. Select the bell next to the three-dot menu icon at the top right of the screen.
  3. Select the notifications you want to receive: posts, stories, IGTV, Reels and/or live videos.

Now, whenever that person posts, you'll see a push notification. You can disable it at any time by repeating the process above and disabling post notifications. You can also do this for multiple people, although all those notifications can get annoying!

Can I share their content on my own Instagram?

This is another networking feature of social networks. The ability to post someone else's post to your own feed. Whether you can't find anything to post yourself or find a particularly interesting post, you can repost it to your own feed.

  1. Select the post you want to share on Instagram.
  2. Select the paper plane icon below.
  3. Select Add post to your story from the context menu.

The post will now change to a story on your feed, and you can post it the same way you would if it was your story.

Keep in mind that this only works on public accounts. You will not be able to do this with accounts set as private.

Clear your Instagram search history

I'm not sure clearing your Instagram search history is as effective as when you do it on Netflix, but you can do it to clean up your account if you want. Whether you want to hide culpable searches or see if content is filtered to suit your tastes, clearing your search history is simple.

  1. Open Instagram and select the search icon.
  2. Select See all
  3. Select Erase everything at the top right of the page.

Now your search history is clear and you are free to indulge in whatever you love to do on Instagram.
