Instagram now ALERTS people when YOU take a screenshot, just like SnapChat

Instagram now ALERTS people when YOU take a screenshot, just like SnapChat Instagram now ALERTS people when YOU take a screenshot, just like SnapChat

While the overall number of Facebook users in the United Kingdom will reach 32.6 million this year - far more than Snapchat, Instagram or Twitter can claim - the drop among younger users means Facebook's "teen issue" is more than just a theory, said Bill Fisher, an analyst at EMarketer.

Instagram is testing a feature that will show users when someone else takes a screenshot of their story. If the person takes a screenshot of your story with their phone set on airplane mode, then you might not get to know about the screenshot. The fact that the creator can track who is taking a screenshot of their stories, other users might be discouraged to watch stories. For example, there's a chance that some users may end up watching less stories over time if they aren't able to take screenshots without notifying the creator.

It is to be noted that the one who takes a screenshot will be warned through an alert, but the one who is the original publisher will not be shown any alert, and the only way to see who has taken a screenshot is by tapping on the viewers' list and looking for the shutter logo.

Facebook Inc.is losing its swagger with young users, who are increasingly migrating to rival platforms including Snap Inc.'s Snapchat, according to a new study.

So, if you are anxious about being caught while taking screenshot, there is also a way to do it without being caught. For photos or stories, it is possible to take a screenshot without notifying the creator.

Instagram has now added the functionality to the ephemeral part of its own social network, Stories. "The question will be whether younger users will still find Snapchat cool if more of their parents and grandparents are on it". The other person will not get any notification of that screenshot.

Many new features have been pulled off by the images and video-sharing platform lately. Now the company has made a decision to launch it worldwide.
