Instagram is going to launch a new text-based social media platform as soon as next month, and in her ICYMI Substack newsletter, Lia Haberman revealed promotional material and other data about this app. The marketing slide Haberman released does not identify the programme’s name, instead referring to it as Instagram’s new text-based app for conversations.
Instagram users will be able to generate words (up to 500 characters in length) and attach photographs, videos, and links, according to the slide. With a single tap, users will be able to follow the same accounts they follow on the social media app.
The same community rules for Instagram will be in effect, and users who have blocked their insta subscribers will continue to be blocked on the new network.
The social media company also claims that Mastodon and other applications will soon be able to communicate with its brand-new text-based social networking platform. Users on these other applications will be able to find, follow, and interact with your profile and content whether you make it public or private, and you will need to approve them as followers, the slide states.
Because Twitter users are accustomed to certain behaviours, this is the only reason why Twitter hasn’t yet fully burned down. Additionally, if people stopped using Twitter, they might think that the apps and websites they switched to wouldn’t be adequate substitutes. However, with Instagram’s new “app for conversations,” that may change.
And yes, despite the fact that Mastodon and Jack Dorsey’s Bluesky appear to be potential Twitter alternatives, Instagram’s new app guarantees that users and content creators can immediately keep all of their Instagram followers without having to grovel and beg to gain a new following on a different network.
