Instagram now shows the exact date when posts were shared

Instagram users: We no longer have to do math!

One of the most outdated/aggravating things about Instagram (especially for us Social Media Marketers) was that it displayed a photo or video's upload date as so many "weeks" ago as opposed to the actual date it was posted. We're excited that this feature no longer exists and counting back the weeks (and then guessing an exact day) is a thing of the past! 

Over the weekend, we noticed the Instagram app (after you update it) now shows the exact date (month, date and year) a post was published on both our own and other peoples' posts. 

Here is what you will now see:
