Apparently Instagram’s direct messaging service isn’t dead. I mean I’ve used it twice and that was seven months ago when it was first released. Since then though, no. Never used it. But it’s not dead, remember that.
Now though, there is a bunch of different popular app that have dipped their feet into other features. Snapchat eventually introduced messaging. Facebook introduced Slingshot recently, which is basically Snapchat. Vine came along and now has a video message sharing service. Instagram added video off the back of how popular Vine got? And also added a messaging service. Really, they’re all very original. But we all have our favorites.
45 Million out of 200 Million users on Instagram are apparently still using Instagram Direct. Are you one of them though? Let us know in the comments below.
