An Instagram Comment is one of the two ways that people engage with the content they see on Instagram. The other option is to simply like the post.
Comments are often a more sought-after form of engagement for Instagram marketers, influencers and brands. While anyone can leave a like by double-tapping a photo, a comment is a more active form of engagement that requires genuine effort from your follower.
It’s possible to publish your first Instagram Comment alongside your IG post on Sprout Social, so you may add extra hashtags into your post and make your content more visible. Businesses can then use Sprout to track the impact of their Instagram posts.

To edit your message, tap the three dots next to your post and click on Edit.
