This article was originally written in 2014, since then technology has moved on and so have we. You can now access your personal social media content through digi.me. Within digi.me you can see, search and share your personal data on your terms. Take a look at the video series below to see more about how we do that.
One of the cool things you can do when you download your Instagram photos to SocialSafe (Note that SocialSafe is no longer available in this format please try out digi.me instead.) is to search through them by keyword or hashtag. When viewing your Instagrams within SocialSafe you can click on the Search box on the left hand side of the top bar and enter the word, name or phrase you’d like to find.
Any photos containing your chosen search term will be displayed. Hovering over an image will show you how many comments, tags and/or likes it has, and clicking on the image will open it up in a larger view, where you will be able to see the caption, any comments, who has liked your photo and any tags associated with it.
You can also change the date range [not demonstrated in this video] to only show you images from any of the preset time periods (eg Last 7 Days, Last 30 Days, Last Year etc), or set your own custom date range.
For more tutorial videos, including how to print your Instagrams as PDFs, please refer to the SocialSafe YouTube Channel where the other aspects and functionality of the SocialSafe application are covered in greater detail.
