If you’re on Instagram then it’s highly likely that you might be following several creative and informational accounts. Frequent posts from these accounts hijack our feed and we tend to miss updates from our close friends and other followers.
While there is no option to change the display order of Instagram feed, you can, however, choose to get notifications when someone posts a story or post. This way you can rest assured that you will never miss a post or story from specific people. Besides posts and stories, Instagram allows users to enable notifications for IGTV and live videos.
Now let’s find out how you can turn on post notifications in the latest version of Instagram for iPhone and Android.
How to Turn on Instagram Post Notifications
To enable post notifications for a particular account,
- Go to the person’s profile.
- Tap the Following tab.
- Then tap on ‘Notifications’ and turn on the toggle for “Posts”.
Similarly, you can turn on notifications for Stories, IGTV and Live Videos on Instagram.

You can also turn on post notifications directly while scrolling through your Instagram feed.
To do so, scroll down to a post from a person or account you follow. Then tap the 3-horizontal dots seen at the top right of the post and tap “Turn on Post Notifications”. A ‘Post notification on’ popup will now appear at the top indicating the setting has been enabled.
The steps are similar in case you wish to turn off post notifications at any point in time.
That’s it. Now you will get a push notification every time the specific person shares a photo or video.
It’s worth noting that people won’t be notified when you turn notifications on or off for them.
