Is there a way to have multiple accounts? I.e. specialized streams of photos...

Hi Alexandra,

It is possible to have multiple accounts on one device -- however, you must use a different email address to register your second account (you cannot have more than one account associated with a single email address). Could you please let me know why you want multiple accounts? If you let us know, maybe we can build that feature into Instagram so that there won't be a reason for you to have more than one account :) Thanks!

It would be nice to have multiple accounts because I use Instagram personally but would also like to use it for work purposes all on the same iPhone.

I, too, would like multiple accounts. One personal, one to run for a brand.

More than one account or a way to be selective with-in your feed. For example - I have pixs of my four childen in my feed now - I need keep them private and have full control over who sees those pixs - family and close friends. But I have many photos that I would like to share with the community at large.

thanks for your input, matt. adding more fine grained privacy settings for photos is something we're definitely looking into for future versions of Instagram.

I want more than one account because I would like to have my regular stream of photos for whoever is already following and for whoever may want to see that set...and another strictly for food based photography. i eat out a lot and review many places- i dont need the two accounts to be linked-- Alexandra

Hi Josh. I work at a place with insanely amazing company culture, and I'd really like to be able to share tons of photos of it on Instagram, as well as manage hashtag contests for our users.

But logging back and forth between my own personal Instagram account and the company account is a pretty huge annoyance.

It's awesome that Instagram has hit a point where it's becoming a great tool for some businesses and other organizations to share and interact with their communities. Please don't make us sacrifice our own personal Instagrams to do so conveniently. :(
