Instagram adds Notify sticker to improve connections

Instagram has added a new Notify sticker to help creators keep their audience informed. With the new sticker, the audience will be notified of any new posts from creators they follow on the app.

The new Notify sticker will prompt your audience (if you are a creator) to set a reminder to ensure that they do not miss your upcoming posts on Instagram. Once a viewer taps on the Notify sticker, he will be able to choose which elements he gets a notification about.

Since not everyone is going to be able to see all your updates, it only makes a lot of sense to add such an important update as this.

As rightly said by Instagram Chief Adam Mosseri a couple of days ago:

Nobody reaches all of their followers when they post, primarily for two reasons: one, a lot of your followers won’t open the app that day, and two, those who do log in have far more posts to see than they have time to spend and don’t scroll down far enough to get to every post.”

In related news, Instagram is working on a significant new element that could allow you to backdate your posts. The upcoming feature, according to Android Authority, will only appear when you try to share a new post.

According to reliable leaker Alessandro Paluzzi, who shared a new screenshot of the feature, there seems to be a “Post to the Past” feature among other sharing options.

The Post to the Past feature is shown with a calendar icon and is sitting right above the Boost Post option. There’s an arrow to the right of this option, which suggests that by tapping on the feature, you’d next select the date you would want to backdate your post to.

Since this is just a test, it is not certain how it would work. There is a possibility that Instagram might want to include on each backdated post the tag that it has been backdated.

Instagram has not confirmed the test yet, but given the fact that the company is always working on new updates, we might just see the ability to backdate posts added in the near future.
