Notes are short text updates that appear at the top of users' inboxes on Instagram. Like Stories, they disappear after 24 hours. Notes can be up to 60 characters long and consist of text and emoticons.

Notes differs from Stories in several ways. First, Notes contain only text or emoticons - no images or video. Instead of appearing on the home screen, they appear above your direct messages. While you can share public accounts on Instagram, you can't share posts from Notes.

And finally, instead of being public updates, you can share them only with common observers or people on your list of close friends.

How to create a note on Instagram

Now that you know what this function is used for, here's how to use it. To start creating your first note, follow these steps....

  1. Open Instagram and select paper airplane icon To go to the message inbox.
  2. You will see A + button On the profile picture at the top of the inbox with the text "Leave a note". Tap on this + icon.
  3. On the next page, type what you want to share in the text box that says Share what you think.
  4. Select recipients: Observers you are watching Or Close friends.
  5. When you're done, tap Share. The text status will now be displayed with your profile picture, alongside notes from other shared watchers.

The process is fairly easy. Just make sure you share it with the right recipients. When you publish a note, people can reply to it as a private message, which will go to your inbox, just like replying in a relationship.
