How Do You Direct Message Someone On Instagram
To send your very first DM on Instagram, take a picture as you typically would. You can use all the same filters to "DM photos" as you could with all other Instagram articles. When you prepare to send it directly to a person (or a group of individuals)-- tap NEXT customarily.
From the Share to menu towards the top of the screen, tap DIRECT (see # 1 in screenshot below). Currently tap inside the Write a caption ... window, and also type out your message (see # 2 in screenshot below).
When you're done composing your message, faucet OK.
Now scroll via your list of Instagram contacts as well as tap the circle alongside their name so that a green "check mark" shows up. KEEP IN MIND: you can select more than one recipient if you want to share a message or picture with a group of individuals.
When you're ready to send out the photo and message, tap SEND TO (NAME).
When they open Instagram, they'll exist with a notification on the "mailbox" symbol as highlighted in the screenshot below.
After touching that mail box, they'll see that a new message as been sent out from you.
When they tap the message, it's presented to them in the format illustrated listed below.
From here they can reply to your message.
If/when they do, you will certainly have a notification icon in your mail box.
The "blue bubble" (see screenshot) shows that the picture has actually been commented on (as well as the length of time earlier).
When you tap the 'response' in your mail box, you'll be be able to see their reaction, and carry on the 'conversation' if you would certainly like.
