Late november Instagram guides arrived in Spain, a new function that allows users to create a kind of blog within their profiles. These guides are presented as a new way to share and create content in the application. Instead of just a photo or video, these guides can upload text and talk about various topics.
The social network gives us various possibilities when uploading a guide, such as talking about a place (be it a city or a specific place in it), recommending products or publications. Any user who wants to can create their own guides on Instagram and if you want to create one, we will show you the steps to follow.

How to create a guide on Instagram
Unlike the new quick replies, Any user on Instagram will be able to create a guide. It is not something that is limited to commercial or professional accounts, so if you want to share a guide with your followers, you will be able to do it. Although there is an important aspect to take into account and that is that this guide will be based on existing content.
This means that if you are going to recommend a site, it will have to be a site where you have been previously, that you have registered the visit, in the case of a publication it will be one that has been previously created. Also in the case of want to make a guide about a productIt will have to be about a product that has been discussed in a profile on the social network, ours or someone else’s, so that we can recommend it. If we are clear about this, we can start with this process:
- Open Instagram.
- Tap on your profile picture.
- Click on the + button to upload something to your account.
- Select Guide from the list.
- Choose the type of guide you want to upload on your profile.
- Select the site, product or publication to share in this guide.
- Give it a title.
- Write such a guide (talk about the product, site or publication in question).
- Fill in the section about what you like about that place.
- Click next.
- If you are happy with this guide, click on the Share button.
- The guide will be displayed in the Guides section of your profile.
When someone enters your profile on Instagram, You can enter the new section of the Guides and see there all the ones you have uploaded. In addition, when you upload one in your account you will be able to share it through direct messages too, in case there is someone you want to see the guide that you have created.
For accounts on the social network that have a great reach, these guides can be a useful function. They can serve as a complement to the posts in the profile, because these guides offer the opportunity to deepen on certain topics. If you want to try them and see their possibilities, you can now use them in your profile.
