Instagram’s New Direct Messaging System

Could Lead to Social Media Explosions

If you want to follow people, you can do so by tapping on the magnifying glass icon, or you can go to the Explore page. There you can browse through topics, or search by name. Instagram works like Twitter and Facebook, with the exception that you don’t need to send friend requests. There are plenty of other features you can use, though, such as the ability to see comments, and you can even create filters to filter out irrelevant posts.

Messages icon

You can send messages to anyone on Instagram, including people who haven’t yet followed you. You can see who’s messaging you and reply with a simple message. You can also reply to messages on the web version of the app. Then you’ll find the conversations on the other person’s profile in the left pane, and you can add a smiley icon or type a reply. You can also reply to non-followers directly.

Direct messaging system

Using Instagram Direct is similar to using Snapchat but does not erase pictures and videos. Its new system could lead to social media explosions. Here are three things to look for in the new system. Hopefully, this is the first of many iterations. We’ll keep you posted. The new direct messaging system is rolling out today to Android and iOS users. This feature is not available to all users. So, how does it work?

Searching for people to follow

If you don’t have an Instagram account yet, you can still search for people to follow. IG’s Explore feature filters posts according to who you follow and what you like, so you can find the people who have relevant posts to your niche or business. You can also search for people to follow by username or hashtag if you know their username or can look through their followers. Once you find the person you’d like to follow, you can send them a message and ask to follow them.

Using filters

Using filters on Instagram can enhance the mood of your photos. If you want to make your followers feel nostalgic, use a filter like X-Pro II. Aden and Juno are all good all-around filters for dramatic photos. Clarendon smooths out skin and reduces shadows, while Juno evokes a vintage vibe. To choose the best filter for your business, experiment with different ones and see what works best for you.

Reporting offensive content

If you’ve noticed inappropriate comments or posts on Instagram, you can report them. First, you need to tap on the blue circle next to the comment and select “Report inappropriate content.” Once you’ve selected the right option, you’ll need to choose whether you want to report the content, restrict it, or block it. This process works the same for users with and without an

Instagram account. You can report a post, profile, or hashtag, or an entire account.
