View your unfinished posts in Instagram
If you’re anything like me, you’re always on the lookout for new and interesting things to watch on Instagram. And one of the best ways to find fresh content is by checking out people’s Reel drafts.
For those who don’t know, Reel drafts are basically unfinished versions of Instagram Reels that people have saved as drafts. And since they’re not finished, they’re often a lot more raw and real than the polished Reels that people ultimately end up posting.
how to find reel drafts on instagram
If you’re curious about how to find Reel drafts on Instagram, here are three methods that should work.
1. Check out the “Reels” tab on people’s profiles
If you go to someone’s profile and they have a “Reels” tab (like the one pictured below), that means they have at least one Reel draft saved.
2. Look for the Reel draft icon in your Instagram Direct messages
If you’re chatting with someone on Instagram and you see the Reel draft icon next to their name (pictured below), that means they’ve got a Reel draft waiting to be shared.
3. Check out the “Reels” section in your Explore feed
If you go to the “Reels” section in your Explore feed (pictured below), you’ll see a bunch of Reel drafts that people have shared with the public.
Use the search bar to find reel drafts on Instagram
One final tip: if you’re looking for specific Reel drafts on Instagram, you can use the search bar to find them. Just type in something like “reel drafts” or “unfinished Reels” and see what comes up.
Hopefully, these tips will help you find some great Reel drafts on Instagram. And if you come across any good ones, be sure to share them with me!
Follow relevant hashtags
Another great way to find interesting Reel drafts on Instagram is to follow relevant hashtags. For example, if you’re interested in fashion Reels, you could follow the hashtag #fashionreels.
Or if you’re into cooking Reels, you could follow the hashtag #cookingreels. Basically, any time you see a hashtag that’s related to the kind of Reel drafts you’re looking for, give it a follow.
Check out popular accounts
If you want to find some really good Reel drafts on Instagram, one of the best things you can do is follow popular accounts in your niche. For example, if you’re into fashion Reels, follow accounts like @fashionreels and @stylereels.
Or if you’re into cooking Reels, follow accounts like @foodreels and @cookingreels. By following popular accounts in your niche, you’ll see their Reel drafts in your feed, which means you won’t have to go searching for them.
Check out profiles of users who have recently posted drafts
If you want to find Reel drafts that were posted recently, one of the best things you can do is check out the profiles of users who have posted them.
To do this, go to the “Reels” section in your Explore feed and look for accounts that have posted Reel drafts within the last day or so. Then, visit their profile and see if they have any other Reel drafts that you might be interested in. This is a great way to find Reel drafts that are still fresh, instead of ones that have been sitting in people’s drafts folder for weeks or even months.
