Instagram Will Soon Let Users Download A Copy Of Their Data

Instagram Nametag Feature

That's because Instagram is gearing up to launch a feature called Nametags, which works like Snapchat Snapcodes, according to TechCrunch. Quoting a book written by an ex- Facebook employee, the report added that in the 2015, Instagram started facing tough competition from rival Snapchat.

Instagram is like that friend that tells you they'll be at the party and then they sort of just rock up late in the night unnoticed, while everyone is already off having their fun. Systrom did state that there was initial tension over the direction of Instagram, although he is now grateful for how it all turned out. The social media platform is rolling out a "Focus Mode" feature that will blur the background the moment it detects your face in the scene.

If Instagram wanted to truly level the playing field, it would let you export your social graph in a privacy-safe format that would let users find and follow those same people on a different app.

Separately on Wednesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg answered questions from USA lawmakers about data privacy in the wake of revelations last month that millions of Facebook users' personal data was wrongly harvested from the platform by Cambridge Analytica, a political consultancy firm. The feature will be made available on a select number of Android.

When you open the camera, you'll see "Focus" next to "Superzoom" under the record button.

Launch the app and swipe left to enter the camera mode. After capturing a photo or video in your stories camera, you can use a @mention sticker available from the stickers tray. However, this isn't the first time when Instagram has copied Snapchat.

Tap to take a photo or press and hold to record a video.

Instagram confirmed the plans to add the data-downloading feature a little more than a month before Europe's General Data Protection Regulation goes into effect, on May 25.
