How to Manage Multiple Instagram Accounts

Instagram has been very slow to add new features that the users demand. They still don't allow links in the captions. But they recently added multiple account login feature, like Twitter has had for a while.

This allows you to switch between two or more Instagram accounts without having to logout of one and login to the other one. If you need to manage multiple Instagram accounts, this is how you do it.
