Although the most well-known way to see where there are more people near you or in your city, or even if you are going on a tourist trip and want to know better what is most successful, is Google Maps, there is another way to discover it thanks to the famous application which has more and more users.
That is, Instagram can be an excellent resource to see the restaurants, cafes, tourist places and areas with the highest influx of people.
You can use it if you go sightseeing, move to another city, if you want to discover places near you, if you are looking to make discoveries or see the trends of other people using the app, even if you want to avoid people. The use you give it depends on you, but there is much more potential than you can imagine, so we will tell you what it is and how it works.
Know crowded areas with the Instagram map
To be able to know the most visited areas, you only have to access the Instagram Map. If you don’t know how to get to it because apparently it’s not very visible, it’s much easier than you think. Once you have opened the app, you give your search engine.
When you have done it, the famous search bar that you will see in many other apps will appear at the top. But that is not what interests you, but the location image or maps that you will see right next to it, in the upper right. Click on it and you will access the map.
The steps are simple and we summarize them for you to have it clearer:
- open the app
- Click on the magnifying glass in the menu below
- Click on the map icon in the upper right
- Interact with your content
Once you have reached it, you will see it along with the most relevant information. Under it, you will be able to see different places nearby and you will access sections such as cafes, restaurants, hotels, tourist places, bars, parks and gardens. You can browse the results at your convenience or search any of these categories to see what comes up for you.
The areas where there are more people, where more posts and stories are uploaded, you can see a colored circle . This means that it is a busy place.
The best of all is that if you click on a specific area and click on search in this area , other results will appear more in line with what you may be interested in at that time anywhere in the world . You don’t even have to be close to a place to see more about its places or fashionable areas. The posts of other people in the territory that you have marked and made visible on the map will be displayed so that you can interact with this data according to your interests.
When you choose something you want to know more about, you can see how to get there, get more information, images and videos , you can share or save it, and even see places nearby. If among its options you give it to open on maps, it will appear on Google Map so that you know how to go on foot, by car, by bike, by public transport by taking a Renfe or bus ticket or however you want.
You can even have contact information or to send an Instagram message in case you need it or want to clear up any doubts. What do you think, did you know this option?
