      Instagram countdown sticker is now available inside INstagram stories and it's a great way to get your friends and followers excited about an upcoming event.

      It's a great personal and business tool for instagram. I'm going to use it for www.festivault.tv to show a countdown to the next film festival. If you don't see it, update your instagram app and then wait. Sometimes, Instagram takes a few days to roll out a new option to all users.

      How To Get A Taken Instagram Username
      45 Views . 2 weeks ago

       

      Is the Instagram name you want taken? You have a couple of options in order to get a taken Instagram username.

      The first option is simply sending a direct message to that account and offer them a little bit of money for their account username.

      The second option is reporting it to Instagram. Here, you'll have to provide some information to Instagram and if your account username is impersonated and inactive, they can give you the account.

      Instagram's latest update notifies your friend when you take a screenshot inside DM.  If anyone sends you a picture inside direct messages, and you take a screenshot, they will get a notification.  

      This has been a feature inside SnapChat for years, but Instagram finally rolled it out in January 2019.

      There is currently no way around this notification, so make sure you are aware when you take a screenshot in your direct messages.
