Instagram is such an amazing platform for sharing your videos and photos with followers and friends. It offers you a great platform to connect with other people too, your friend and even the celebrities. You can follow anyone like your favorite actor, sports personality etc. over Instagram and get to view, like and comment on their photos, and videos.
However, Instagram is only a mobile app that you can install on your smartphone and operate. But when it comes to using Instagram on your system on the big screen, Instagram lacks a decent web interface to manage the account on computers.
And that’s why Websta came into existence to fill this void. What is Websta and why are we talking about it here?
You must be thinking the same. Well, this article here would help you know about Websta. We will learn how can this service help you to manage your Instagram in a better way on computers/laptops.
What Is Websta?
For all those who don’t know what Websta actually is, let me tell you. Websta is an online service which helps you to manage your Instagram account with ease and in a better way on a large screen viz. laptop and computers. As we already know that it is difficult to manage your Instagram account on a computer due to its web layout. So, Websta’s founder developed and created this online service where you can log into your Instagram account, manage it, check out the custom feeds, your media and so on.
When Websta was first launched it was known as Webstagram then, but later they changed its name to Websta. Not only for viewing your posts but Websta offers many other features that you can’t get on Instagram. Websta is all about to providing the Instagram users a better experience.
Also, you should know that Websta is not Instagram but it is third party application which uses Instagram API to load the Instagram content.
So, without taking more of your time, let us get to know how to use Websta for managing your Instagram account. Here we go…
Now that we have covered what is websta, its time to get into its working. Websta supports an easy to use approach for getting started with it. It is a user-friendly application with lots of efficient features. Here is the full procedure on how to use Websta.
I. Login To Websta
First of all, you need to visit the official website of Websta in order to start managing your Instagram account using it. So, head to the website. Login at the homepage to enter Websta. But there is no need to create any account on Websta as you have to log in using your Instagram credentials. Don’t worry, Websta is safe.
Simply click the Login button available at the top right corner and enter your Instagram username and password to log in. Once, you are successfully logged in to Websta via your Instagram account details, proceed to the next step.
II. Manage Your Instagram Account
It will display your account, on the left sidebar you would see some panels and options for each panel. The first panel you see is the Manage account panel. As the name suggests, you can manage your Instagram account without any hassle.
The First thing in Manage account is My posts when you click this option it shows you all your posts. You can see all your recent posts, comments and likes. But there is one more thing which is great to get an overview of all your Instagram posts through the Analytics. The analytic feature of Websta provides details about your posts. It shows the number of all the posts, number of likes and comments and also the Engagement rate. You can also see the most commented and the most liked post of your Instagram account through Websta.
Custom Feed is another great feature of Webtsa. It enables you to select the people you are following to check out their feeds. You can name your custom feeds and delete any user whenever you want to.
III. Analyze Your Account
The next panel is Analyze Account. The Analyze feature of Websta lets you view your account details like the number of posts, total number of likes you got, the count of total comments, your followers and the number of people you are following.
Websta also displays your content in form of pie charts and graphs. You can see the graph representing the distribution of your posts based on the months you posted, and the past history. It also shows the top hashtag and filters you used in your posts.
You can also view the growth of your followers and likes with the help of graphs in the Engagement section of Analyze panel.
Another great feature is Optimize. In the optimize section, Websta displays the posts, likes, and comments on the basis of day and time you posted it on Instagram. With its help, you get to know at which time and on which day your post got the maximum number of likes/comments and then you can start posting in those timings for optimizing the growth of your Instagram account.
IV. Explore More On Instagram
Explore section of Websta lets you connect with more people on Instagram. It helps you to explore the trending users of Instagram and their number of followers and the engagement. The featured users feature provides the list of featured users and their number of followers. You can sort the featured users’ list on the basis of followers, Posts, active rate, and the engagement rate. You can even sort the users according to their professions such as actors, brands, musicians, comedians, athletes and so on.
Websta also provides a complete list of top 100 Instagram hashtags. It represents the hashtags along with the number of posts with that particular hashtag.
On clicking a hashtag, it displays all the posts which contain that specific hashtag.
So, this way you can manage your Instagram account and do so many other things using Websta. I found the website quite impressive and useful. With lots of helpful features, Websta has made it pretty easy to handle your Instagram account on a larger screen. But, I found a flaw in Websta that it is a bit slower. When you use some feature to view the content it takes longer time to load and also, it took really long to load the images and the videos of the user’s posts. Otherwise, Websta is a great service and you should also give it a try.
