Sharing Features on Instagram Notes, Group Profiles
Instagram is a free online photo-sharing application and social networking manifesto that was acquired by Facebook.
Instagram allows users to edit and upload photos and short videos through the mobile application.
Users can add a title to each of their posts and use hash tags and location-based geotags to index those posts and make them browsable by other users within the app.
Every post a user makes appears in their followers’ Instagram feeds and can also be viewed by the public when tagged with hashtags or geotags. Users can also choose to make their profile private so only their followers can view their posts.
Like other social networking platforms, Instagram users can like, comment on, and bookmark other people’s posts, as well as send private messages to friends through the Instagram Direct feature.
Share photos on one or more other social media sites, including Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr, with just one click.
Instagram is not only a tool for everyone, but also for businesses. The photo sharing application offers companies an opportunity to open a free business account to promote their brand and products.
Companies with a business account can access free engagement and impression metrics.
According to Instagram’s website, more than one million advertisers worldwide use Instagram to share their stories and drive business results. Additionally, 60% said they discovered new products through the app.
History of Instagram
Instagram was founded in San Francisco by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, who initially attempted to create a platform similar to Foursquare, but then turned their attention entirely to photo-sharing. The word Instagram is a grip of instant camera and telegram.
The iOS app was released on the iTunes App Store on October 6, 2010, and the Android app on April 3, 2012.
The platform’s popularity has skyrocketed, with the company reporting more than 40 million active users just two years after its launch.
That caught the attention of Facebook, which formally bought Instagram for $1 billion in the summer of 2012.
Whether it’s making friends or exploring common interests, connecting with others is why people use Instagram. Today, we’re rolling out several updates to help you get closer to the people you care about.
Share your opinion
We are launching Notes, a new way to share your idea and see what your friends are up to. Notes are short posts of up to sixty characters, using only text and emoji.
To leave a message, go to the top of your inbox, select the followers you follow or someone on your close friends list, and your message will appear at the top of their inbox for 24 hours. Replies to notes will be sent to your inbox as DMs.
During testing, we learned that people like having a lightweight, easy way to share their idea and start a conversation.
From asking for advice to sharing their latest updates, Notes gives people a casual and spontaneous way to express themselves and connect with each other.
Spend quality time with friends
People love sharing their day in Stories from highlights to more everyday moments. We are testing new features in Stories to make it easier for people to share in spontaneous, fun ways that help build stronger connections with friends.
Add Your Nominations:
Since we launched Add Your Nominations in Stories last year, we’ve seen how prompts can help inspire people to share in unplanned and creative ways.
We are testing an update to Add yours, and when you see the prompt reminding you, you can invite friends to participate by tapping Pass.
We are starting to test Candid, a new way for you and your friends to capture and share what you are doing right now in a story that only people who share their stories can see.
Capture sneak shots from the story camera, multi-author stories at the top of your feed, or from daily notification reminders that start after your first sneak shot. For those who don’t want to be reminded with daily notifications, you can always turn it off in Settings. We are testing a similar feature on Facebook Stories.
Collaborate and keep up with your team
People often create group chats on Instagram to share interesting content, connect memories, and make plans with friends.
We are testing new features to give people more ways to feature and connect with friends in groups.
Soon, people will be able to create and join a new type of profile to share posts and stories with friends in a dedicated shared profile.
Whenever you share content to a group profile, that content will only be shared with group members, not your followers, and will be posted on the group profile, not your own. To create a new group profile, click + and select Group Profile.
We are testing a way for people to connect with friends about their shared interests by saving posts to collaborative collections in your groups or 1:1 DMs.
You can start or add to collaborative collections by saving the post directly from the feed or by DMing the post to a friend and saving it from there.
