Instagram Direct: Private Sharing Of Photos and Video Messages On Instagram UnveiledBy Marhgil Macuha on Dec 13, 2013 in Internet, Software, Technology •
Instagram recently introduced Instagram Direct, a new way of sharing photos and video messages on Instagram. Now, Instagram users can share their photos and video messages to either all of their followers or just to select few of their friends.
Instagram, on its official blog, has this instruction on how to use Instagram Direct:
From how you capture photos and videos to the way you start conversations through likes and comments, we built Instagram Direct to feel natural to the Instagram experience you already know. When you open Instagram, you’ll now see a new icon in the top right corner of your home feed. Tap it to open your inbox where you’ll see photos and videos that people have sent to you. To send a photo or video to specific people, tap the camera button to enter the same simple photo or video capture and editing screens. At the top of the share screen, you’ll see the option to share with your followers (“Followers”) or to send to specific people (“Direct”). To send using Direct, tap the names of the people you want to send your photo or video to, write your caption, tap “send” and you’re done.
After sending, you’ll be able to find out who’s seen your photo or video, see who’s liked it and watch your recipients commenting in real time as the conversation unfolds.
Photos and videos that you receive from people you follow will appear immediately. If someone you’re not following sends you a photo or video on Instagram, it will go to your requests so you can decide if you want to view it.
Below is their introduction video uploaded on Vimeo:
