After we have experienced several major updates in the recent months, rumors emerged regarding a following Instagram messaging service that may be released by the end of the year. After it was bought by Facebook, Instagram has undergone several important changes, including the addition of video and commercials. We have seen this change before, when YouTube was bought by Google, and additional services emerged in the interface, some disliked by the longtime users.
I’m not a huge fan of Instagram, but I always thought a messenger app would be very handy for the users and it will take the experience to a whole new level. Of course, before implementing the service, Facebook has to create the proper filtering system, since there are users that may not want to receive all messages, while others users may prefer to receive messages only from certain users. I wonder if the rumored Instagram service will contain the option to send messages to a groups of users. These details should be clearly defined if Facebook does not want to infuriate users who prefer the basic functionality of the service.
What’s your thought on this service? Is it useful?
