If you use Instagram, as 1 billion of us do every month, then you’ll know that the paid advertising on the platform is getting smarter. In the past year, Instagram’s paid advertising has got more targeted, more tailored and slightly more terrifying when it comes to understanding our exact interests and desires. This is all great news if you’re a brand, but as a humble Instagram user you might be interested to find out what the social-media giant knows about you.

And if you are, then you’re not alone…This week Twitter has got a little bit excited after finding out it’s possible to see what exact keywords are associated with your account, and thankfully the road to enlightenment is pretty easy.

Here’s a step by step guide:

  1. Go to your account page and click on the three lines icon in the top right corner
  2. Choose Settings at the bottom of the sidebar
  3. Then select Security

4. And then choose Access Data
5. You’ll then be taken to a large list of data related options. Scroll to the very bottom of this page and then under Ads select Ads Interests
6. Instagram will then take you to a page with a variety of keywords associated with your account, you can View More to further find more associated keywords

Easy, right?

Now you know how to do it, you’re likely to find some funny combinations. We had a dig around on Twitter and wanted to share some of our favourites:
