- [Narrator] Generally speaking, when people use Instagram, they use it from a phone or a tablet using the Instagram app. I do want to mention that you can, however, use Instagram on a computer. So here I am on instagram.com and when you go to instagram.com you can just log in with your Instagram account. Now, on a computer, you can review all of the photos and videos and even the stories that you've posted. So you can see I could click on one of these stories and I can view them. I can also go to the top and I can search for other accounts. So I could search for my Instagram account. There we go. Now the only limitation is that you can't upload photos, which is a pretty big limitation if you're using Instagram for business. So if you're going to be uploading photos and creating content, you do need to use the mobile app on an iPhone, an Android device, or a tablet. However, if you're just looking for inspiration, you just want to comment on other people's posts, maybe start following some people, you can absolutely use a computer, you can see the pictures a little bit bigger. Just go to instagram.com and log in with your Instagram account. So again, using a mobile device is the only way to upload content to Instagram, but using a computer is a great way to view photos on Instagram while you look for some more inspiration for your next post.
