All pinned posts or Reels will appear at the top of the photo grid on users’ profiles, and it’s a way to let people see which posts are most important to them. To pin a post or Reel, open the post and tap on the three dots at the top-right corner. A “Pin to your profile” option will appear from the menu and tapping on it will simply pin the post above all other posts. A white pin icon appears on all pinned posts.
