Instagram is Updating Its Comments With Conversation Threads

Posted by @DanHinmon, Wed, Aug 16 8:39am

First of all, let me get something off my chest.

I hate hate hate linking to Mashable. That site has horrible user experience – at least on my MacBook Air. It loads slow. Ads pop up everywhere. Simply scrolling down the page takes forever. I click somewhere and the wrong thing loads. Argggggghhhhh.

But today I’m linking to Mashable. Why? Because I have a commitment to this community to post articles that contain updates to popular platforms, and this is the only source that popped up today in my Feedly.

Here’s the news: “Instagram announced a major upgrade to its comments section that will let people thread different conversations under a single post. When users hit ‘reply’ on a comment after today’s update, the comment will appear in a nested thread. Before the update, all replies lived in one column, making it difficult to have multiple conversations on the same post.”

There you go. Click the link at your own peril if you want more details.

Worth it?
