Liking posts on Instagram is the most common way to interact with other creators and their content. If you’ve ever wanted to go back and see what posts you’ve liked, there’s a really easy way to do it. Here’s everything you need to know.

Instagram is still one of the biggest social media platforms out there, serving as a place for friends and family to keep in touch, as well as for influencers and celebrities to interact with their audience.

Users can upload anything from standard images to videos, stories, reels, and more. The app is also constantly expanding in an attempt to keep up with social media giant TikTok so there are a lot of user-friendly features now, including the ability to archive and unarchive posts and create group chats with friends.

Whether you have been on Instagram for a while, or have only just gotten started, you probably will have ‘liked’ at least a few posts, possibly even thousands over the years, and you might find yourself forgetting what you’ve double-tapped.

Thankfully, Instagram has a feature that allows you to find posts you’ve liked. Here’s how to see all the Instagram posts you’ve liked in 2023, and even from when you first started your account.
