What to do when you accidentally like someone's really old Instagram picture

Clambering out of the ‘Deep Like’ quagmire
Deeplike, Instagram, Images, Picture, Liking

1) Try to stop panicking

Breathe…and rapidly unlike the picture.

2) Pray they didn’t notice

Maybe they have notifications turned off? People do that, right?....RIGHT?!!

FYI: Instagram’s official page states: If you've accidentally liked a photo and then unliked it, the person who posted it will still get a push notification if they have notifications turned on. BUT very soon after you remove a like, the like alert will disappear from other people's Activity.

3) Set your Instagram to private…immediately

Will only really work if your name and picture isn’t a giveaway. And if they are…

4) Change your Instagram handle and picture

Example: They get a notification that @Rachel86 has liked their picture, but little do they know that @Rachel86 is now @CutiePie198. Ha! Untraceable….sort of.

5) Delete your entire Instagram account

Let them try and track you down now, eh?? (consider this a last resort plan contingent on level of embarrassment)

6) Become a recluse

Who needs social media anyway?

7) Evaluate your social media stalking level

When the adrenalin rush dies down, and hopefully you’re in the clear…be honest, has your Insta behavior become unhealthy? Nah. Didn’t think so. 

8) Still stressing? Try chilling out by watching a YouTube video

It could always be worse.
