Praise the social media lords -- you can now switch between two Instagram accounts within the app without having to logout and log back in again.

While that might sounds like a minor tweak, it makes a big difference to frequent users who manage two accounts, which is often the case for business owners, creatives and celebrities.

You've been able to toggle on Twitter for forever, and now Facebook has come to the party by adding this feature to the Instagram platform. Previous third party apps to offer the service have been average at best.

To activate, ensure your app is up to date, then hit the 'Settings' cog and scroll all the way down to the bottom where you'll see 'Add Account'. Once added you can toggle between your two accounts at the top of the page, near the logo.

You're welcome.
