Instagram Releases Progressive Web App With Direct Messaging Feature on Mic: A feature that allows users to send private messages is on its way to Instagram as a beta. The new platform allows users to share photos and videos directly to their friends, without ever leaving the Facebook application. That eliminates the need for Twitter accounts or email addresses to access your contacts.
In a world of intense competition in the social media industry, Facebook has been the leader in setting up complicated ways for friends to stay in touch with each other. They have long had a feature called "Likes." Friends can add each other to their circles through this feature, which places them in a queue. But, if you didn't add someone, you couldn't see any updates.
The problem with Liking is that many people create profiles which include profile pictures, but then forget to include information such as name, phone number, address, or status updates. And, even if they add the information, it would take too long to sort through the endless list of likes and find the one you want to follow up on.
Facebook will continue to evolve in order to keep their users engaged. If you go to Facebook's site, you'll notice that in the past few years, all kinds of features have been added. Including filters and trends, statuses, polls, and so on.
There have been many times when Facebook users haven't noticed any of these additions, which just shows how great the product is. Now, with Instagram, users are going to be able to connect directly with their friends and post pictures directly from their phones.
If you're not familiar with the Facebook "update screen," it allows users to choose a photo or video, add a caption and then share the update to their friends. Once people like the update, they'll get a message telling them that they can continue to view the update in the news feed. That way, if they don't see it they can still get the latest updates.
But, in the past, Facebook users had to click a button on their website and on Facebook.com to open their feeds. And, with social media, things can get messy. It's nice to be able to share photos and updates straight from your phone.
Users can now take advantage of this feature through the Instagram website, but only if they have a Mic app installed. The Mic app makes a sound to alert you when your friends to add you to their contact list. But, if you don't have a Mic app installed, you won't be able to receive messages from your friends.
Facebook made a huge mistake when they didn't make it possible to send direct messages from the Facebook app. They're now making it possible to send direct messages to people through their websites. But, they only allow a limited number of Mac users to send messages to each other.
So, if you don't have a Mic account, you won't be able to send messages to friends until they have a Mic app installed. In fact, if you have a Mic account, you won't be able to use the app until Facebook sends the update to the web version of the app. If you don't want to wait for Facebook to approve your Mic update, you can download the update directly from the website.
If you're an avid Facebook user, you should probably wait for their update to be available for everyone. It will probably be coming to the mobile version of the site first. For more information, you can check out the Facebook blog.
From Facebook's blog: "Now we're moving toward our biggest change yet - introducing a new feature for our mobile apps - sharing...", according to a blog post. The Facebook blog also says that the new feature will be available to users on the Facebook app store and on Facebook.com.
