Instagram is a fast growing social media tool with sources reporting over 17 million UK users. It is especially popular with the younger generations. Almost half the time spent on the platform by 18-24 year olds. Whilst it lacks personal details similar to Facebook, it is still a means to create a connection with someone you are looking for. An Instagram User Search is not as simple as some forms of social media, but it still possible to an extent.
Find People on Instagram
There are two means for conducting an Instagram User Search. The main one is to search for users, the alternative being hashtags. A search may be done by the persons name or username. If you are having no luck try nicknames and variations.
Another path you can take is to locate people you believe they may be friends with. Then check the comments to see if you can find the person you are seeking.
You can also import contacts to help find people. This is handy if you have a persons email address or phone number as it may provide the ability to reverse search the details.
Note that Instagram is App based, so downloading it on your device and registering can speed things up.
