Internet stalkers (a.k.a. everyone) started freaking out last week when news broke Instagram would begin alerting users when friends (or creeps, a.k.a. all of us) take a screenshot while using the new “disappearing message” feature. The paranoid thought being that Instagram would also send notifications whenever a screenshot was taken of a photograph.
Go ahead and exhale, because that’s not the case.
The screenshot notifications will only occur within the disappearing message feature, which is basically a carbon copy of messaging on Snapchat.
So, no harm, no foul. Carry on being your creepy self.
Just be sure not to like someone’s picture from 67 weeks ago. That’s weird.
