Hello Everyone! Social Media Fellow is back with another blog and today we will discuss some common errors while using Instagram and what to do if Instagram stopped working.
First of all, thank you so much for the previous post and I hope you will continue to share their informational posts in the future.
Let’s come straight to the point, what can you do if Instagram stopped working on your phone or showing some error.
Here are some of the steps to follow to ensure that you will get your answer to your question which is “Instagram not working today?”.
Check your internet connection.
Clear Cache and Data of the Instagram app.
Uninstall the app.
Make sure you are not using any VPN.
Reboot your phone.
Verify if Instagram has proper permissions to use Data
These five ways will possibly fix your Instagram issue. I am going to explain all of them thoroughly with pictures.
Check your internet connection
Checking your internet connection should be your first option if you find that Instagram suddenly stopped working. There are so many people including me who accidentally revoke internet access from Instagram application.
If your internet seems fine, check if you have any DATA SAVING application installed. Sometimes, data savers put a restriction on Instagram to use the Internet data connection to save data.
Also, if you are using mobile internet data, try using Wi-Fi. I don’t know why, but sometimes it works 😄.
Clear Cache and Data of the Instagram App
We can perform this action when we verify that our internet is completely fine and other apps are working without any issues.
Here is the issue that can be with the application itself. Clearing the cache and data of the app can be a possible solution.
If you are using iOS, you cannot perform this action. For Android users, go to Settings > Application > App Manager (This can be different in various phones). After that look for Instagram and hit clear data.
That’s it, open Instagram again and log in to your account again.
Uninstall the application
Uninstalling an app can something be handy if Instagram isn’t working on your iPhone, iPad or whatever device you are using.
For iPhones/iPods/iPads, long press on the Instagram app icon then select “Delete”.
For Android, long-press the app icon and select the uninstall option. For more information, check out this tutorial.
VPN stands for “virtual private network” and can sometimes block the Instagram app to connect with their servers.
Check if you have any application with name VPN at like DoomVPN or NortonVPN. If you get one, uninstall it and try to use the Instagram app again.
Reboot Your Phone
I know, this is not an unknown method. But trust me, I fixed most of the error whether in PC or mobile by rebooting the device.
So it’s worth giving a shot.
Verify if Instagram has proper permissions to use Data
In order to check if Instagram has enough permission to use data on your iOS or iPhone, go to setting and scroll down and click on Instagram and make sure the “Cellular Data” option is ENABLED.
Common Instagram Errors
Error: You can’t follow any more people
Solution: Instagram has a limit of a number of followers you can follow. It is 7,500. Whether you are a celebrity or a normal person, you cannot follow more than 7,500 people.
Error: Not able to delete comment on Instagram
Solution: This is a common error on Instagram that sometimes it says not able to delete comments while deleting it. The reason for this is that Instagram has already deleted the comment and the page isn’t refreshed. Close Instagram and open it again and go to the comment you want to delete, it would be removed already.
Error: Instagram Stopped Working
Solution: Sometimes, while using Instagram it suddenly stops working and says Instagram Stopped working. The problem can be under your phone software. Here is the solution, uninstall the application and reboot your phone. Install it again.
Hi everyone, I hope you’re well. Social Media fellow is back with another post. This post is related to the ShareChat app. One of the most asked questions is how to delete the ShareChat app account permanently? Here, I got a solution for you.
To delete the ShareChat app account permanently, go to Settings > Privacy Setting and Tap on “Remove Profile”. This way you can easily delete the ShareChat app account.
A friend of mine was finding it difficult to delete his account from the ShareChat app. I did it for him and thought about writing a blog post in case anyone else needs. The detail explanation is below.
Here are simple steps to delete ShareChat account:
Open the ShareChat app and go to your profile.
Now go to the “Settings” tab which is present at the top right corner.
Go to privacy settings. After that, tap on remove profile.
Now Enter your mobile number in the box.
And you’re done.
This method is tested and a working method. You don’t need to send any emails to the ShareChat. It’s a very simple process.
Also, never about the language of the text in the images. I use Hindi as default in the testing phone.
Also, I have seen many users having other kinds of issues with ShareChat account deletion. Sometimes it gives an error or something.

Hello Everyone and welcome back to Social Media Fellow. Today I have something very interesting to share with you. Do you ever wonder how to find people on Instagram with their phone numbers? If yes, then this post is definitely for you.
As usual, I am going to give you a quick answer to this question. In order to find people on Instagram using their Phone Number, you just have to add their number in your contact list. Once you add the person in your contact list, go to Instagram and enable “Find people using contacts” in your settings. Instagram will show you the person’s profile to follow. That’s it!
The process is very simple but I will explain it step by step with pictures. Here is the complete guide to find someone on Instagram with their number.
How to Find Someone on Instagram with their Phone Number?
The first step is the add the number as a contact in your contact list.
Then go to Instagram and click on the Profile icon.
Click on the icon located at the top right corner as shown in the pictures below.
Select “Discover People” option located at the end of the list.
At the top of the list, you will see “Connect Contacts” and a connect button in front of it.
Click on connect button and select “Get Started”.
If Instagram request for any permission, Click allow.
That’s it. Refresh the page and you will see a list of Instagram Profiles of those who are in your contacts.
This method is very useful in looking out friends and relatives on Instagram. But, there are still some people who face various issues such as discover people on Instagram isn’t working. So, let’s talk about this problem and solution for it.
Discover People on Instagram Not Working
This issue is basically an application bug which most of the people face. The solution for this problem is to uninstall the application and then reinstall it.
This will clear all the cache from Instagram app and you will be able to see your contacts in discover people list.
This error can also occur if the person you are looking on Instagram doesn’t use their phone number while signing up. If that is the case, ask the person for any other phone number if they have.
Why “Discover People” feature is useful?
“Discover People” is the most useful feature of Instagram. It is also one of the most less known feature that anyone knows. Apart from finding people using their phone numbers, you can even connect your Facebook to it and can see all your Facebook friends’ Instagram profile.
This is really useful if you want to connect with your friends and family over Instagram who are already connected on Facebook.
How to Find Someone on Instagram without an account?

You just have to go to www.instagram.com/banishangural and you will see a search bar at the top. Either enter the name or username of the person’s ID and you will see the results. That’s it.

Hello everyone, Social Media Fellow is back with another post. In this post, I am going to explain how to use Snapchat filters in TikTok videos. This is the most commons question TikTok users ask me. So, I have complied with the answer with pictures to make it easy for you to understand. Let’s get started…
In order to do that, we have to record the video in Snapchat first and then upload it to TikTok. I will explain the whole process in a while.
Add/Use Snapchat filters in TikTok Videos
The steps are pretty simple. The basic idea behind is to record video in Snapchat first with filters you like and then uploading them to TikTok.
Record Video in Snapchat and Export it
Record the video in Snapchat and save it by long-pressing and select the “Export Snap” option. Your Snapchat video will be saved to the gallery.
If you wanted to add music to your Snapchat video, follow these steps:
Download a music application called “Gaana” in your iOS or Android.
You can listen to millions of songs for free. Play any song you want to add in your video.
Let the song play and open Snapchat and record the video.
Upload video to TikTok
Now it’s time to upload the saved Snapchat video to TikTok. In order to upload a custom Snapchat video, here is the very simple process:
Open TikTok and Click on the “Plus” button located at the bottom center of the screen.
Select “Upload”, located at the right and select the video you just exported from Snapchat.
Make any required changes to that and upload it!
That’s it. You now have a TikTok video with Snapchat filters.
Now, if I am discussing how to use Snapchat filters, it will be a good option to discuss why you need Snapchat filters on TikTok. Why not just use the regular TikTok filters. Here is the answer to it.
Why use Snapchat filters in TikTok?
It will not be wrong to say that Snapchat has a large variety of filters which TikTok doesn’t offer. With more than 500+ million users on it, Snapchat filters are very popular.
With regular filters updates every day or week, it is a hotspot for the TikTok fans who want amazing filters on their TikTok videos.
If we talk about the benefits of using Snapchat filters on TikTok, there are various benefits.
Edge over others: As not everyone knows and uses Snapchat filters on TikTok, it is a great option to get an edge over others and get more followers and likes.
Great way to create Attention-grabbing content: Have you ever wondered how to get on the TikTok “For you” page? If yes, check out my guide on it. But in the guide, I explained that attention-grabbing videos tend to perform much better than the normal videos. This means, you will get on the FYP on TikTok and will get a lot of likes and followers.
