One of the most widely used photo and video sharing apps on the planet is known as Instagram. Even though this is the case, the corporation does not just want you to share pictures. You can update your profile with text using a new Notes feature that Instagram is testing.
It is clear that these resemble Twitter’s Tweets. It makes reasonable that Twitter would allow for the posting of succinct thoughts. All of these may be said in 280 characters or less.
RIGHT NOW, IT SEEMS LIKE INSTAGRAM NOTES IS GOING FOR THE SAME APPEAL. We received this information from Social Media Today . Currently, it appears that Instagram is developing a feature that will let users create and publish brief text-based updates for other users to see. You’ll only have up to 60 characters to express yourself, so they’ll be notably succinct. That is roughly 79% shorter than a typical tweet of 280 characters. You’ll need to use your Notes very sparingly.
Advertisement The Notes won’t appear in your Instagram feed by itself. Instead, when you check your inbox, you’ll notice them. The notes will be displayed in a carousel at the top of your inbox. The carousel will be directly below the search bar.
The user’s profile photo will be displayed at the top left corner of each Note, which will be a rounded square. Additionally, you’ll be able to see the post’s creation date. You will notice a caret with the number of off-screen Notes next to it if the carousel spills off the screen.
Additionally, Instagram is testing the display of ads on user profiles. Advertising seeps into almost every corner of our life like water. That theory is supported by Instagram’s latest experiment, which involves testing the appearance of adverts on user accounts.

Since something is simply being tested, we cannot be certain that it will truly take place. If it does, then since Instagram gives you the option to toggle it, we anticipate that it will be enabled by default (although this may just be cynicism).
