Instagram Direct, a fantastic privacy feature!

I know I have been away for a while now, 10 days since my last post to be precise. But well, I think we are all kind of busy at work specially at the end of the year. I am a little bit late to talk about Instagram's last update "Instagram Direct," but I know I have to do so.

Instagram Direct allows you to share photos or videos with certain friends you chose and not all. I found this feature really great when it comes to protecting your privacy, where it allows you to share a photo or video with only your friends and not the rest of your followers. However, after sharing the post, you will be able to find out who's seen your photo or video, see who's liked it and watch your recipients commenting in real times as the conversation unfolds. 

Photos and videos that you receive from people you follow will appear immediately. If someone you are not following sends you a photo or video on Instagram, it will go to your requests so you can decide if you want to view it or not.

What would be even better, is that Instagram brings that option where it allows us to hide a photo or a video from specific followers. Like sharing a photo or a video with all your followers except for one or two followers. Wouldn't be awesome :D
