Instagram is close to unveiling a new private messaging feature into its photo-sharing app, according to Om Malik of GigaOm.
It would make sense that messaging would be next on Instagram’s list. The popular app, which had 150 million users in September. and likely many more than that now, already allowed users to comment and tag others in their post descriptions.
It’s unclear what the messaging function will look like, but one could imagine a user might be able to share photos directly with certain friends or groups without needing to post to his public feed.
