Instagram is becoming the go-to app for people who are savvy regarding social media. It allows people to share their personal life events, while also providing a platform to products and services providers to market themselves to a massive audience. Instagram, due to its popularity and effectiveness, has become a serious competition for social media platforms like Facebook.
Considering this popularity, a number of third-party service apps have popped up on the platform, intending to provide services that Instagram itself does not currently offer. For example, you can use the free Insta DP viewer at Gramvio.
When you send someone a ‘follow request’ on Instagram, and they click on it, the first thing they view shall be your profile. Your profile will display your profile picture and – if it is not set to be private – all the images or posts that you have shared so far.
However, the most important aspect of an Instagram profile is the bio, which tells a visitor about who you are, your interests, hobbies, and whatever else you choose to put on the bio. If you own a business looking to enhance its brand recognition, it is essential that people comprehend what the brand is all about, and the benefit they will derive if they decide to follow this brand. You have to convey this information in 160 characters or fewer, so you have to come up with something that is informative yet catchy.
Now, many users, especially those looking for more followers, want their bio to be the most prominent feature of their Instagram profile. The default, left-aligned position of the bio does not really help make it stand out, and Instagram has no feature that permits you to change the alignment and shift the bio towards the center.
Alongside making it more noticeable, a centrally-aligned bio allows you to discard that 160-character limit and use as many words as you want to convey your message to your followers and potential followers fully. For this reason, there has lately been a tremendous focus on finding ways to center on Instagram bios. In this article, we will highlight a couple of easy and straightforward ways to get that done.
Method 1: Centering Instagram bio using spaces.
Step 1: Open your Instagram profile.
Step 2: Select the ‘Edit Profile’ option.
Step 3: Visit the bio option present on the profile.
Step 4: Copy the spaces provided below (only the spaces themselves, and not the brackets on either side).
Step 5: Finally, place these spaces before every line of your bio. You need not be concerned about the empty spaces, as, even though they count as characters, Instagram does not notice them because, after all, they are just empty spaces.
Method 2: Centering Instagram bio using Notes application.
Almost every smartphone these days comprises a built-in notepad or memo app.
Step 1: Open the notepad and make a new note.
Step 2: Paste the entire Instagram bio (including spaces).
Step 3: From the notepad, copy the entire bio (including spaces).
Step 4: Open your Instagram application and visit the ‘Edit Profile’ option.
Step 5: Paste the copied text in the bio section.
Depending upon the number of spaces that you have included, your bio will be aligned to the center on Instagram. If it does not, you can simply turn back to the notepad and adjust the spacing accordingly.
Tips for creating spaces for centering Instagram bio:
One of the two methods mentioned above involved the use of spaces, divided by brackets. These spaces were not taken from Instagram (and should never be taken from Instagram). Instead, they were from an independent party. There are specific tips regarding the centering of your bio that we would like to provide. Implementing said tips will enable you to create spaces on your own that can be used on Instagram.
Tip 1: Do not use Instagram to create the spaces:
This is perhaps the single most tip (or rather, rule) that you can follow while trying to center your Instagram bio. Instagram’s algorithm picks up those additional empty spaces and automatically removes them. To eliminate this problem, you should use third-party websites or applications for creating or writing those spaces. Once you have done that, you can directly paste those spaces on the Insta bio, and make amendments accordingly.
Tip 2: Prevent the edges of characters or spaces which are not empty or blank:
Spaces can be formed using symbols such as brackets, arrows, or anything fancy. These symbols are crucial to creating spaces since you will require something visible in order to distinguish those spaces. Otherwise, you will be unable to identify the spaced regions since, obviously, they are blank and invisible.
It is important not to copy the first and last characters while reproducing the spaces; those characters merely exist to help enclose your created spaces. Therefore, copying those and making them a part of the text might mess up everything. Additionally, it might serve as a trigger to Instagram and might cause it to pay closer attention to what you are trying to do.
Tip 3: Do not add too many spaces at once:
While center-aligning the Instagram bio, you will be required to adjust spaces accordingly. You might have to put additional spaces if you are not satisfied with the bio text’s alignment. So, how do you check if your bio is entirely in the center? You will have to save your changes and view the updated bio. That will allow you to check if the text is precisely in the center. If not, you will have to go back to the drawing board and increase the number of spaces.
To conclude, the methods and tips, as mentioned earlier, will allow you to center your Instagram bio effectively. However, do make sure that you do not end up writing a bio that is too lengthy or complex. The key is to get the message across in a simple yet attractive manner.
