Instagram seeks to add a new function within its application, it is a new tool for users to express themselves and interact with their friends. However, it would not be something very new, but rather a function that both WhatsApp and Facebook had previously incorporated.

These are new states, which will now be called Notes and which would be used for other users to see the text you have written during a day in the direct messages section. This note will appear at the top of the direct messages section, and will be visible for 24 hours, just like stories.

As in WhatsApp, the states can be answered by simply clicking on the note that you have published. To add a new note, you will have to press the ‘+’ button from the section in which they appear. You can also modify the privacy to share your notes with all your followers, followers that you follow or only with your best friends.
