Our parents used to switch from one channel to another with the TV remote so that they could quickly see the contents of each channel. We do something similar with instagram stories until we find the one that really interests us.
When that happens we cannot help but react with an emoji. The point is to show that we were there and that we agree with whatever was said in it. The problem is that these sent emojis clutter the private message tray. For this, the social network has a solution: likes to Instagram stories.
react with a like to the stories of your contacts on Instagram
Before reacting to a instagram story with likes, heart emojis or any other, filled our private messages section. For Instagram It is very important to pay close attention to this section and continue to enhance it until it becomes a platform that is also preferred for our instant messaging needs.
For this reason, you will now enter the likes to the stories of Instagram. These will be reactions that will be accumulated in the history of our story, but that will not take effect in our private message tray. East modus operandi It will be something very similar to what is already happening with the stories from Facebook or Facebook Messenger.

Private Story Likes
Starting to roll out today, you can now send some love by liking people’s stories without sending a DM.
Likes on stories are private and do not have counts. Rather, they appear as hearts next to people’s handles in your Stories view sheet. pic.twitter.com/l56Rmzgnnw

If we think about it carefully, little by little all the applications that belong to the Meta conglomerate will be a little more uniform in terms of functionality. This conglomerate includes Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger. With the Telcel Network and its Telcel Max Unlimited Planyou can have unlimited access to all these apps to browse with #TelcelLaBestRed with the Greatest Coverage and Speed.
How can I use this new feature?
The heart emoji will be placed right next to the section to write a message at the bottom of a story. Once the button is pressed, the user will receive a notification. These likes can be seen in the details of the history of Instagram. Precisely in the section of people who saw the story, a small heart will appear next to the users who have sent their like.
“The idea is to make sure that people can express more support for each other, but also to clean up the DM (direct messages)said Adam Mosseri, who is the company’s chief product officer.
When other people enter our story, they won’t be able to see how many likes has accumulated our content. Said information is something that will be private for the owner of each story.
What happens if I accidentally send a ‘like’ to someone?
The decision to give like will work the same as feed. This means that if you accidentally pressed the button, but it was not your intention, of course you can remove it immediately or even later. If you regretted sending that like to your ex, you can re-enter the story and press the button again to remove it.
This new feature will be available from February 15. Although it is still unknown if this will happen immediately for all users, or if it will happen gradually and perhaps by country.
Instagram It has long sought to pay more attention to the user experience with messages. The first approach to this concern was to have combined the private messages of Instagram and Facebook Messenger, an offer that was not entirely well received by users.

The idea of having an inbox unlike any other in Instagram, has always been attractive to users. Therefore, the company finally gave up on this idea and began to provide more tools to users of the photo platform. First there were voice notes, disappearing photos and now even video calls.
Similarly, Instagram has introduced new options and functions for the entire application, in addition to private messages. Users can now bulk delete posts or comments immediately, and can even rearrange their feedaccording to your preferences.
