How to Fix Comments on Instagram

So if you're on Instagram, maybe you've already figured this one out.  But did you know that you can delete a comment and start over if you misspelled a word, or autocorrect totally botched what you meant to say?  Even get rid of those spammy comments that show up sometimes--like "come get lots of followers here"  :)

I have the Android version, so I don't know if works the same way for iPhones, but here you go.

Tap the speech bubble.  

The box pops up where you can leave a comment, but there's also a pencil icon on the top right.

Hit that and you'll see a little red x next to all the comments.  Click that and you'll get an option to delete your own comment, or if it's a comment by someone else it will say "delete and report abuse" or just "delete."  So now you can erase your comment and re-enter it.

If this post helps just one person today, I have done my job :)

And I want to say congrats to all the winners for the giveaways we've had here over the last couple of weeks.

  1. You totally helped me out girl!!! THANK YOU!

  2. I often would end up deleting my whole photo because auto correct would pick an incorrect word for me. I too have gotten spam comments and get upset that I couldn't delete those comments. This is great info. Thank You!

  3. Awesome! I never knew how to do that! This will be a huge help when auto correct decides to 'think' for me!

  4. I will have to try this on my iPad (where I use Instagram). This has definitely happened to me where autocorrect wrote something crazy! :)

  5. I truly like your interpretation of the issue. I now have an unmistakable thought on what this matter is about.. instagram followers

  6. Following execution of the natural substance on outsider apparatuses will now be less demanding with this API as it's presently based on an indistinguishable approach from is Facebook's Graph API. Instafellow.com
