Instagram had been planning the launch of the notes, group profiles and candid stories functions for a few weeks. The platform continues to implement big changes to revitalize its dynamism and motivate users and, finally, the notes function has already arrived on the photography social network.
In this article we will explain, in detail, how to use the new Instagram notes from your iPhone. It is a very fun feature that will encourage users to connect with their followers in a fun and creative way in the application, which has recently redesigned its logo.
What are Instagram notes?
The notes feature that has recently landed on the social network allows users to share short status messages, “little notes” or “thoughts” with other Instagram users from the message inbox section.
The place chosen for the visualization of these new notes has been the upper area of the inbox. Here, Instagram will display the profile photos of all those users who have recently shared a note.
“Instagram Notes are a new way to share your thoughts and see what your friends are up to.”
The notes have a 60 character limit and will be shared for 24 hours. Writing a new note will replace the current note. In addition, users can decide which followers have the possibility to view their notes.
How to use Instagram notes
The operation of this new Instagram feature is really simple. You only have to follow a series of steps to start sharing your notes.
1. Open Instagram on your iPhone.
2. Go to the Messages section.
3. Tap the circular icon of your profile photo with a (+) button in the upper area.
4. Write your Instagram note below. Remember that you have a limit of 60 characters.
If you already have a published note, by clicking on the icon of your profile photo, Instagram will offer you the possibility to delete the current note and write a new one. A little tip: You can use emojis!
