How To Edit Comments on Instagram

Instagram is an image sharing social network that is focused on developing your own community. Part of building your own community includes getting involved in other communities as well. There’s a popular Instagram strategy called the $1.80 strategy, where you leave your personal .02 cents on the top 9 trending Instagram posts for 10 different relevant hashtags every single day. If you decide to test this strategy out, be sure to spread out how often you comment on each post, as leaving too many spammy comments might get your account action blocked.

Commenting on other accounts posts is a great way to increase your exposure on the app. Instagram users like to search for relevant content and engage with those posts. But what happens if you made a comment with an embarrassing typo? There’s nothing worse than ruining a quality comment with a silly typo.


Can you edit an Instagram comment?

At this time, it isn’t currently possible to edit a comment that you left on someone’s post. If you made a comment on a post and realized that you made a typo, you’ll have to delete your comment and re-post it.

To delete your comment on Instagram, all you have to do is swipe on your comment and you’ll see an arrow icon and a trash icon.
