For a lot of people, their Instagram account is the only way they have of looking back at how they were years ago. If you’re curious about what kind of person you were 5 or 10 years ago, here is a simple way to find out: Looking at your first liked posts on Instagram.
Looking at your old social media posts can be enjoyable. And a nostalgic memory trip back to when times were simpler. So too is digging through the first posts you liked on Instagram. Revisiting those memories that shaped who you are today means a lot at any given point in life. And it’s much easier now to travel back to where we’ve been as opposed to some of our parents’ older generations who have very literal photo albums. Because so much of our lives today happen online via social media sites like Facebook, Google Photos, etc. We have even more flexibility when it comes to reminiscing over old photos and status updates — even ones that happened years ago!

Instagram is a great place to connect with people and share photos and videos with your followers. This social media platform was launched in 2010. So it’s safe to say that there are probably hundreds of thousands (if not more!) of people on it now. As an Instagram user, you probably have tons of memories stored up. Because you’ve used this application for well over a decade. Looking back at your older posts is quite easily done! The best way to do so is by simply going to the Instagram app. And then continuing by opening your profile; scrolling down until you see the older posts on your timeline. In fact, Instagram released a new tool in late 2013 for users to search through their top Instagram Stories photos/videos from up to twelve months ago.
Remember when you first started using Instagram? I know, it was ages ago. I still remember my first Instagram post from February 2013: a picture of some pink flowers in my backyard with the caption ‘Second day of spring #nofilter.’ It’s kind of funny to think about what someone liked on Instagram ages ago and now that we have the chance to see our first liked post ever! Thanks for making these posts possible by sharing yours! 🙂

As for what you should do with your first liked Instagram post? That’s for you to decide!

You can do that if you want, or you can keep the posts private and laugh at them on your own.
