Instagram to launch new way to add friends

Instagram's theft of key Snapchat features continues: The Facebook-owned photo app is reportedly readying a feature called Nametags that would essentially function like Snapchat's Snapcodes.

"Instagram is simply building upon a technology that Snapchat created", Kevin Systrom, Co-Founder, Instagram had said in a recent interview with Wall Street Journal. Having launched eight years ago, Instagram has over 800 million users and yet does not provide an option for users to export their data. Hopefully it will come out by May 25, putting Instagram in compliance with the European GDPR privacy law.

Adding such a feature will allow users to more easily leave the platform and makes it easier for users to import it to their local library or import it into another social media platform.

To take those flawless "bokeh" photos, you just need to update your app via the iOS Store or the Play Store.

And if you're an aspiring influencer, you could plaster it on stickers, posters, and merchandise. That's despite Instagram now being nearly 8 years old and having over 800 million users. "From a data perspective, it noted, Facebook and Instagram are the same".

Another big question is whether the downloaded videos and photos will be in the full resolution they were uploaded or a compressed resolution that won't make them suitable for easily switching to an alternative service. "But at a high level it allows you to download and export what you have shared on Instagram" so we'll have to wait for more clarity. Instagram will let users add filters and other edits, and then you can publish the content as you see fit. This will help if you're considering deleting your account. People will be able to scan Nametags to follow people.
