Instagram Direct: Private messaging comes to Instagram

Social media powerhouse Instagram adds another tool to their belt with the integration of Photo/Video Messaging.


While sending and receiving private messages has been a staple across most social platforms since their inception, this is a new feature for Instagram. It may seem like “too little, too late”, but considering Instagrams influence in the social marketplace, I think this was an excellent addition to their already powerful platform.

“Instagram Direct is a simple way to send photos and videos to your friends,” said the CEO of Instagram at an event in New York City. “We wanted to make this about moments you share with your friends.”

Head over to your Android/iTunes/Google app store and update your app today to try out the new feature.
