The Details View allows you view all information related to a post, including its caption, comments, likes, tagged location, tagged users and more.

Carousel Posts

Carousel posts are multiple photos and videos (up to 10) combined into a single post.

  • Hover over the carousel post, and use the left and right arrows that appear.

  • Click-and-swipe left or right with the mouse / trackpad.

  • Click the page indicator dot that appears beneath the carousel post.

Each photo in a carousel post can contain different tagged users. See Tagged Users for more. Videos cannot contain any tagged users.

Comments

The comments on a post are displayed by default below the caption (if present).

To view the comments on a post:

If comments are disabled on a post, the comments tab will be dimmed and disabled. If comments are restricted and you do not fit the permitted commenters, you will only be able to view comments and not add or reply to existing comments.
