    Instagram is rolling out a new feature that allows posting content to multiple accounts at the same time. The social network confirmed to TechCrunch that the feature is now rolling out to all users of its iOS app:

    The ability to select which accounts to simultaneously publish the same post to is being made possible through the use of simple toggles that appear when the New Post option is selected.

    The new feature is likely to be welcomed by users who have multiple accounts for whatever reason (to separate content, for instance) but it's sure be a hit with marketing companies who manage various social accounts.

    Whether users will be able to publish Stories to multiple accounts simultaneously is yet to be confirmed.

    Sort of puts their 'active user' numbers in a new light. Although maybe this levels the playing field of humans vs bots a bit.

    I am on a team that manages pages for multiple locations of the same restaurant, so this is great news for us! Instagram still only allows you to be logged in to five accounts on one device, so spam bots already have other methods they use to post, and this won't affect them at all. I see this as mostly helping legitimate accounts - small to medium-size businesses, people who have personal and professional accounts, etc.

    There are legitimate uses I care about - record labels who run accounts for their bands, photographers who have different feeds for wedding/event/live music/boudoir - but it’s likely this will mostly make it easier for sponsored post workflows, and sponsored posts on Instagram are already trash.
