How To Use Instagram Direct Message
To send your initial DM on Instagram, take a photo as you typically would. You can use all the same filters to "DM photos" as you can with all other Instagram blog posts. When you prepare to send it straight to someone (or a group of people)-- tap NEXT customarily.
From the Share to menu to the top of the display, faucet DIRECT (see # 1 in screenshot listed below). Now faucet inside the Write a caption ... window, and kind out your message (see # 2 in screenshot below).
When you're done composing your message, faucet OK.
Now scroll with your listing of Instagram contacts and tap the circle beside their name to ensure that an environment-friendly "check mark" shows up. NOTE: you can pick greater than one recipient if you want to share a message or picture with a group of people.
When you're ready to send out the picture as well as message, tap SEND TO (NAME).
When they open Instagram, they'll exist with a notice on the "mailbox" symbol as shown in the screenshot listed below.
Upon touching that mail box, they'll see that a brand-new message as been sent from you.
When they touch the message, it exists to them in the layout highlighted listed below.
From here they can respond to your message.
If/when they do, you will certainly have a notification icon in your mail box.
The "blue bubble" (see screenshot) highlights that the picture has been commented on (and for how long earlier).
When you touch the 'response' in your mail box, you'll be have the ability to watch their feedback, and also carry on the 'conversation' if you 'd like.
