This is a common conundrum for social media accounts; your posts appeal to very different sets of people. Well, there’s a way for you to reserve certain posts only for people you choose to see them. Instagram is rolling out the ability for people to create a Flipside profile.
You have an Instagram account that you mostly use to post your light-hearted and cheerful art. However, you also enjoy making images that are dark and macabre. Rather than creating an entirely different Instagram account, you may want to consider just making a Flipside profile. It might actually be the best option for you.
Instagram is rolling out the Flipside profile feature
Right now, there are two options for Instagram profiles. You have your public and private profiles. However, there hasn’t been an option to only share posts with your closest friends. The company was working on a feature called Spaces that would let you do just that. You would be able to make a profile that only your closest friends could see.
Well, Instagram is working on that feature, but it recently changed the name to Flipside. So, it will work the same way. Once you gain access to this feature, you’ll be able to create an alternate profile. Here, your posts will only be seen by the accounts you designate.
X User and reverse engineer, Alessandro Paluzzi discovered this feature and posted a screenshot of it. When you set up your Flipside profile, you’ll have the option to send posts to your Flipside profile right from your regular profile. So, when you are making a new Instagram post, one of the sharing options will be to share it straight to your Flipside profile. Another screenshot shows the splash screen people see when they gain access to the feature.
According to reports, this feature is currently rolling out, but we’re not sure about the company’s rollout schedule, so we’re not sure when it will hit everyone. We installed the latest beta version of the app, and we’ve yet to see it.
