Recently, Instagram is one the popular application uses in the whole world.In this app we can upload images and videos. As well as the personal life of actors can be seen through their post.


 In the instagram section of the app, users will now see a green dot next to profile pictures of their friends indicating that said friend is online. The green dot indicator is not just limited to Direct. But it will also reflect while you are sharing posts via direct message (DM).

This is similar to the green dot on messenger, yet another social media platform.


Apart from a green dot to show when users are online, it will also show recent activity status including timestamps such as ‘Active 25m ago’ and ‘Active yesterday’.


“DMing friends and connecting over the content you love is more fun when you know your friends are there to see it. This update gives you the ability to have more of those real-time conversations while giving you the control to hide your status altogether,” said Instagram in its blog post.


Fortunately, Instagram gives users the option to hide the new online status. This feature will be available for users on Android and iOS. To do that, go into setting  on the app and turn off the show activity option.
