Instagram have now improved direct messaging on the platform which might be good news for some,for me its a pointless idea unless you only use Instagram as a medium for contact,I use it myself now and was a huge hater against it but I use for for personal things mostly and would not live on it as much as Twitter for example,You can now exchange threaded messages and send posts you see in Feed to to one or more people as a message it also supports private photo sharing, selfies and emojis, Check out for the update now as its live App Store and the Google Play Store.
Threaded messages make it easier to go back and forth with the people you talk to the most. Instead of creating a new conversation every time you send a photo or video, your threads are based on the people in them — and your moments flow along naturally. We’ve also added the ability to name your groups, a quick camera feature to respond with a selfie on the fly, and larger-than-life emoji for when there are just no words.
Today’s updates also bring a brand new way to start conversations around what you see on Instagram. When you find something inspiring or funny, your first instinct is often to share it with friends who you know will appreciate it. Today, people do this by @-mentioning friends in comments, so much so that nearly 40% of comments include an @-mention. This update has made it easier to share content that you love.
Now, you’ll find an arrow next to the like and comment icons under every post. Tap it to send that post to a friend or group as a message using Instagram Direct. It will appear as part of your conversation, and you can tap the photo or video to see and like the original post. You can also send hashtag pages and location pages by tapping the arrow icon in the top right-hand corner.
