Instagram is an online social networking, photos sharing and video sharing service. It allows users to take pictures and videos, can apply digital filters and then can upload them on various social networking site like Facebook, Tumblr, twitter and Flickr. A distinguishing feature of Instagram is it sweeps a photo in square shape, which is similar to Polaroid and Kodak photos. Users can also record and share a video of about 15 seconds also. Instagram was launched in October 2010 by Mike Krieger and Kevin Systrom. Earlier it was distributed through Apple app store and Google play store but now Facebook has acquired its service. The Instagram community has spread to over 150 million people. Users capture and share their moments through this service around the globe. It has also become a mean of visual communication. Through instagram people share their daily life routine which they think is special and want to share it with their friends.

There are however some moments which users want to share, but with a smaller group of people like their special family moment or an inside joke between friends captured. Instagram Direct helps the users to share such moments.

Instagram Direct is built in way to make people feel natural to old Instagram experience. It tells it users from how to capture pictures and videos to start a conversation through likes and comments.

Lately when users open Instagram, they can see a new icon at the top most right corner of the home feed. After tapping on it inbox gets opened where the user can see all the photos and videos that people have sent them. To send photos or videos to specific people tap on the camera button and can select photo or video and editing screens. At the top of the share screen the user can find two options:

  1. Follower-To share with the followers
  2. Direct-To share with some specific people

To send via Direct the user have to select names of people he wants to send photos/videos to and click on SEND.

After sending the user can see who can see his photos/videos, can see who has liked them and can also see the comments.
