So many people are looking for advice on how to take their old usernames and hashtags and repurpose them into new content. Many people end up changing their username, but not necessarily the content. I just wanted to share my process and some of the tips I used.
The first thing you should do is clean it up. The best thing to do is to delete the “old” and “vintage” from your username and do a complete rewrite of it. What I usually do is use your old username (i.e. “oldusername”) as a starting point for the new name. Now just use your old hashtag, like #oldusername, and change your username to #newusername.
You can also keep your old username and simply change it to newusername, as long as you don’t change the content. I recommend that you keep it, but change the content.
One way to clean up a username is to remove the user’s personal information. That includes your email address, phone number, and most importantly your entire Instagram username. You can also delete you account and create a new one just for Instagram. That can be a good way to clean up any old personal data on your Instagram.
I’ve had a few posts that were deleted immediately because they were not in good taste. This is a good one to show you in the process. If you have an Instagram account and have used the same username to post in the past, you can delete that account and create a new one, or you can simply change your username to something new.
The main problem with deleting an Instagram account is that you won’t be able to see the old posts in the future. You’ll only see the new ones. But not long after deleting your account, Instagram will show the deleted posts in your timeline. Also, if you want to see your old posts on your profile, you can go to the post where the old comment appeared.
Instagram was recently bought by Facebook, so there’s a lot of competition between the two social networks. If you want to see the old posts, you can go to your Instagram profile and see a link where you can view all the old posts.
Instagram also has a feature called “favorites” where you can see your old posts. To do this, go to your profile and find the last comment that you were able to read. Then click the “favorites” button on the top left of your timeline. The next time you see the comment, you’ll see your old post.
So far it looks like Instagram is the way to go; as for the other social media networks, there’s a new tool called Disqus, which will allow you to see your old posts.
This is a great idea and I think it will be a huge help for the older generations. I can see myself having to keep all my old posts in order to read them. I know I will miss my old posts but I will be able to read them in their entirety if I ever have to start over on instagram.
