What is finsta short for?

Fake Instagram account

Finsta is an abbreviation for finstagram, which is a fake Instagram account. It is used as a secondary, or alternate, account to be more private.

Finstas allow users to be more authentic on their Instagram and escape the pressures of expectations from their main account. Finsta users can post unattractive pictures or post inside jokes to their smaller and closer group of followers. Since the account is locked, finstas enable the user to screen her or his followers and give permission to followers as to what they can see, which is especially attractive for female users.
