Instagram to get messaging system before the end of this year


Ever since Instagram was acquired by Facebook, we’ve been waiting for a major update of sorts. This could come in the form of a private messaging system that should be made available before the end of the year. We are happy to see further updates to Instagram, especially now after it has recently started incorporating videos. They released the update dealing with incorporated videos just a few months ago, and Instagram has been much better ever since.

Facebook’s next step is to give Instagram users a chance to contact each others directly. Some people are saying that Instagram isn’t supposed to be ‘that kind of service’, and are accusing Facebook of trying to hard. Most people however, are happy to see the platform updated, and cannot wait to be able to convey their feelings about a certain type of content directly to its creator.

Hate it or love it, the update will reportedly start rolling out until the end of the year, and it will be nice to see how people react when it hits. Yesterday we talked about the Facebook app and its impending update, today another one of Facebook’s services is in the news. One thing is certain, Facebook is actively looking to improve its services within the near future, and this can only be good news.
