Instagram Introduces Online Status Indicator

If you thought you could get away without easily getting noticed on Instagram, that seems to be over. The social network is introducing a feature that lets people know if you are online or not.

To check if someone is online, a green dot will appear next to their profile picture. This lets you know that they’re online to message.

Who sees when you’re online?

The only people who will see that you are online are people who follow you and those you have ever had a chat with via Instagram Direct messages.


This feature will not make it easy if you are ignoring someone. However, Instagram says there will be an option to hide your status from others if you want to do so.  

Over the past few weeks, Instagram seems to be in the business of improving their services and introducing new features. The most recent one is the prominent IGTV which was launched a couple of weeks ago.
