Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video A tour of the Instagram app, part of Learning Instagram.
- [Voiceover] Now that we've set up an account…and have started following some people,…let's take a tour of the Instagram interface.…We've actually seen a majority of it already,…but I wanted to quickly go over some of…the important areas here in this one video.…So, starting here on the home screen,…which is brought up with the first button…on the bottom left of the screen,…this is, again, where you see your update-to-date feed…of the content being posted by the people you're following.…Just scroll down to see all the photos and videos…from the most recent and back.…Now also at the top right of the home screen,…you'll find the Direct Message button.…This is a feature of Instagram that allows you…to send direct messages to any of your followers.…
From here, just tap the plus button…and select or type the name of any user or users…you want to send a message to.…You can then write a message…or send a photo or video to them…and they'll be the only ones who see it.…Messages here show up like they do…in an instant messaging app.…
