Instagram is one of the most used - and addictive - social networking platforms.

If you have an account, you're probably well aware of how easy it is to share every minor aspect of your day to your account. Indeed, you may find yourself oversharing with your followers as a result of it. If this happens to you and you want to clean up your account, Instagram's archiving tool can be useful. It allows you to hide posts from your main Instagram feed without completely removing them, which is quite handy.
