Limitations on the Instagram Posts a User can Upload/Delete per day?

Primarily, there is no hard and fast rule on the quantity of Instagram posts a particular user can delete per day. There is no such regulation for the number of posts that can be removed or added by the respective user per day at any moment of time.

However, the limit you can face when deleting an Instagram post is that the user will have to delete each and every post and not completely at once.

The Instagram app is different because it can’t delete any of its posts altogether. It only allows users to delete them one by one.

Instagram prevents its users from deleting their posts only on mobile phones. If the user wishes to delete a particular post on Instagram using a web browser, this particular action cannot be performed. The coding of Instagram prevents it from displaying such an option to the user while using a web browser. 

Limitations of Commenting on Instagram

Instagram permits users to post around 180 to 200 comments per day. One important thing to note is that this number may vary depending on the total age of your Instagram account. 

For an Instagram account that is new, the total limit for comments is less than 200, and primarily around 180. 

A user needs to take precautionary measures in order to make sure that you do not exceed this limit. If it is skipped it can lead to blocking your Instagram account. It is strongly recommended that the user always keep their number below the limit allowed to be on the safe and not face the limitation error.

A particular user should also avoid commenting or posting the same comments over and over again, which would flag your account as spam and thus lead to unprecedented account closures. You should also take safety precautions so that you do not use only emojis in your comments in a big way. Always back up with a few words to avoid exposing your account as a spam account. 

Limitations of Captions on Instagram

Instagram has limited the number of letters that can be used in captions. Instagram captions must not contain more than 2,200 characters.

The user needs to ensure that the captions of the users are limited to only 2,200. But, short captions draw more attention from Instagram than long ones.

Crossing the line may lead your account to be red-flagged which may be a way to block your account.

The user must try and keep their caption short and to the point. Avoid making your captions contain wordless emojis.

Use your ingenuity and try to make short and short captions enough to catch the eye of the people who are following you.

These are some of the major pointers through which you can easily fix the error to be displayed on Instagram. One can easily solve the errors, especially the limit issue by being aware of the total limits of posting stories, posts, or commenting.
