Instagram Direct message

Instagram Direct

  2. Tap ‘New messageimg at the bottom of the screen.
    Choose a person to talk to – they can be many.
  3. Compose a message or tap the photo icon to the left of the text entry field to share a photo.
    Tap ‘Send’ or the arrow icon in the corner, if you are sharing a picture.

Use Your Recipient’s Profile

  1. Go to your recipient’s profile page – use either Search feature or just scroll through your newsfeed till you hit one of their posts and tap their name.
  2. On the Profile page tap the three dots symbol img in the top right corner.
    In the menu displayed choose ‘Send message’.
  3. Step 3 are no different from step 3 described above.

That’s it – this is how to direct message on Instagram

In case you are still wondering why you would want to send messages to other Instagram users, consider the following:

  • It is an easier way to bring your friends’ attention to a photo.
    Sending a notification to their Direct inbox is more efficient than tagging them in comments and it provides better privacy.

  • You can create a discussion group.
    Your messages are available to the same set of people and they are threaded, so you don’t have to start the entire conversation anew.

  • It also makes it simpler to suggest accounts, hashtags and location pages to your friends.
    For hashtags and location pages click the curved arrow in the top right corner of the screen; for accounts tap the three dots symbol and select ‘Share this profile’. The rest is easy.
