Several studies have revealed that social networking sites could trigger frustration and negatively impact one’s social behavior. If you have got enough of Instagram or wish to get rid of all the associated memories due to some personal reason, you have the option to delete your Instagram account for good.
When you delete your Instagram account, all of your photos, videos, likes, comments, followers and profile are permanently eliminated. Moreover, you won’t be able to sign up again with the same username or add that username to another account.
