What is printing on Instagram?

The "print" metric in Instagram refers to the number of times a post was viewed, without differentiating whether it was viewed more than once by the same user. There is another metric called "reach", which measures only the number of times posts are viewed, but not counting user repetitions. So when a publication has three impressions and two reach, this indicates that the content has been viewed more than once by someone.

This is true for posts in the feed, as well as for Stories and also for videos posted on IGTV. Access to this information is restricted to business accounts, which have access to Instagram Insights - a social network platform area to measure the success of posts. See below for how to access print data for each type of publication.
