Other news that came to Instagram
Before the end of the year, the application of Goal added several changes, adding more forms of interaction to users.
One of them is DM Notes, which is a new way to share thoughts and see what different friends are up to through short text messages. Users can leave a note to anyone who follows them or just to the list of Best Friends (Close Friends).
This will appear at the top of the inbox of the selected group of people for 24 hours. The responses that people make to these notes appear as direct messages in the inbox of the social network.
The option to invite friends to participate in the ‘Your turn’ sticker is also being tested. The idea is that more people participate with this option in the stories and share more memorable situations or moments.
Finally, collaborative Collections are being tested. This new feature makes it easy to organize and co-create collections of saved posts to share with friends, helping users of the social network share common interests. They can find all the collections in the shared media section of the chat rooms.
