Ever wanted to be the envy of your friends and feel like a celeb on Instagram? The social network has been around for almost a decade and has become one of the most popular photo-sharing platforms in the world.
One of the biggest reasons behind its popularity is that the Facebook-owned mobile-based app also offers the highest engagement opportunities through likes, comments and views on videos over both Facebook and Twitter. Although celebrities and influencers dominate Instagram, there’s a few tips and tricks you can use to look and feel like ‘the other half’ on the platform.

Accessing new filters on Instagram is not restricted to beta testers. By following specific accounts, any user can access filters developed by the users or businesses behind those profiles.

If you follow her, you get access to the Kylie Cosmetic makeup filters. Numerous celebrities and brands, including Rihanna, Adidas and Gucci, offer users custom filters just for following their official accounts. Not a bad deal at all.
Recently, Johanna Jaskowska, a beta tester and artist from Germany created a series of Instagram filters that overlay futuristic effects onto photos and became globally recognised after celebrities began using her filters. Since launching them at the beginning of 2019, Jaskowska released the filters through her official account @johwska and has since racked up over 700,000 followers. By following her account, users have access to filters that have become used by international musicians such as ILoveMakkonen and Cardi B.
By signing up to become an Instagram beta tester and following the right accounts, you could also unlock a range a cool filters and features. To access your new filters, simply swipe right on the home page and the new filters will be highlighted. Not only will these make your photos more vibrant and eye-catching but may even lead to a spike in followers. Who knows? You could be the next big Instagram influencer!
