Save Instagram Photos to your Computer

How to Save Instagram Photos to your Desktop

"I just want to save Instagram photos" but it's 2017 and Instagram is constantly updating. It feels like Instagram changes itself more than most people change their sheets (which should be weekly by the way). So how can you save Instagram photos to your desktop? The old school method of "right click > save as" is no longer effective. After an update last year, many Instagram enthusiasts who still own a laptop reported that the functionality that has aided us through so many research projects has now turned its back as the social giant steps up its game. It's been reported that with Instagram's new "save in app" feature, they did away with the manual actions to save to a desktop or laptop computer. Along with the advent of third party repost apps (if you're in the market, check out Regrann) allowing easy reshares, there's definitely plenty of workaround alternatives.

How to see why you're being targeted on Facebook

2 Easy Steps to See Why You’re Being Targeted in a Facebook Ad

Ever casually browse Facebook and stumble across an ad in your newsfeed that has nothing to do with your interests? I have - just last week on a coffee break, a video of a girl brushing her teeth with charcoal found its way to my newsfeed. What seemed to be out of a dental horror movie, the video continued through to a 7 day after photo with the same woman sporting a smile so white, the pearly gates would be jealous. A quick glance to the top left corner of the ad showed the tell-tale sign of a lightly written "sponsored" right below the page's profile photo. While I'd like to think my dental hygiene is on point (my dentist, if you're reading this, I definitely flossed yesterday), I don't avidly follow pages associated with dentists or Colgate. So why am I seeing a Facebook ad about charcoal teeth whitening? Has Facebook been analyzing my uploaded photos sporting a teethy grin and decided my Pronamel toothpaste just isn't cutting it?
