Design
Where form meets function

Earlier this month, Instagram launched a few features reminiscent of Snapchat, with a couple of key additions being the ability to send disappearing videos and photos. Now, in what seems to be an attempt to either innovate or further become Snapchat, Instagram has added another feature: screenshot notifications.

This means that if you were hoping that the disappearing content you received could be permanent memories, the new screenshot notification will now essentially snitch on you.

Fortunately, people won’t get notifications if you screenshot the public pictures on their page, so you’re safe – for now. Regardless, people evidently weren’t happy as they took to Twitter to express their disgust.

Will you still be screenshotting disappearing photos and videos on Instagram post-update? Let us know in the comments below.
