Instagram announced a new method of hosting videos would be released via Instagram Reels. Reels helps you to build up to 15 seconds short-form videos with the perfect audio that can be shared with other Instagram pages, most notably on the Explore tab of users.
If filmed, if Instagram wants to highlight it as a ‘Featured Reel,’ your Instagram Reel has a chance to be featured on the Explore site. How can you upload an Instagram Reel so it only appears on the Explore page and not on feed from your followers? This is what we will be discussing in this article.
Where can you share your Instagram Reels
You can record your Instagram Reel of up to 15 seconds and share it across a multitude of sections inside Instagram and externally as well. When a recording is created, all users (public and private) will be able to share their Reels on their Instagram feed or inside their Stories.
Additionally , public accounts will have a chance to have their content featured within the Explore tab of Instagram while sharing their Reels with others, even outside of their follower base.
Besides that, you can share your Reels externally to other messaging and social media apps by sending a link to your Reel.
Can you upload your Reels in Explore only?
Hey. Instagram helps you to build and upload Reels in a clean way which will only appear on the Explore tab of the users. In this way, you wouldn’t need to post them in the feed of your followers as all of your Reels would still be available on your profile page under the section ‘Reels.’
How to share Instagram Reels in Explore without posting it to your feed and profile grid
If you want your Instagram Reels to be shared in such a way that it only appears on the Explore tab of users, you can do so by configuring your Sharing options before uploading your Instagram Reel. To do so, build your Instagram Reel by opening the Stories button, capturing your Reel, finalizing your video with original audio and adding different effects.
After your Reel is created, tap on the right arrow to confirm the recording and then tap on the arrow icon on the bottom right corner. This will take you to the ‘Share’ page where you can decide where you want your Reels to show up on Instagram.
By default, Instagram enables sharing to ‘Feed’ which sends your Reels to all of your followers’ Instagram feed and also makes it visible inside your profile grid. You can disable this and only make the Instagram Reel show up inside people’s Explore tabs by toggling the ‘Also Share to Feed’ switch to OFF position.
After you have done that, choose a cover image for your Reels and then tap on the ‘Share Reels in Explore’ button at the bottom.
That’s it! Your Instagram Reels is now only visible when people check out the Explore tab on their Instagram app. Your Reels will nether appear on your followers’ feed or inside your profile grid, thus leaving your profile look uncluttered.
