An Instagram carousel is a feature on Instagram that allows users to post up to 10 photos or videos in a single swipeable post.
How do Instagram Carousels work?
With an Instagram carousel post, users can share multiple images or videos within a single post rather than creating separate posts for each image or video. This can be particularly useful for sharing a series of related images or telling a story through a sequence of pictures or videos.
Users can also add captions, hashtags, and location tags to each individual image or video within the carousel, and can choose to post the images or videos in any order they like. Additionally, Instagram allows users to add interactive features to carousels, such as polls or quizzes, to engage their followers.
Instagram carousels can be viewed by swiping left or right on the post, and can be shared or saved just like any other post on the platform. The feature has become increasingly popular among creators and businesses on Instagram, as it allows for greater creativity and flexibility in content creation and sharing.
