Conversation is what makes communication going. and that is the type of engagement Instagram wants.
The photo-sharing platform follows Facebook lead by introducing a simple but significant feature: comment threads. Previously, users could only make a general comment under a post.
But with the update, Instagram's comment box becomes much more similar to Facebook's as users can reply to individual comments.
For users to start or participate in a conversation thread, they just need to tap on the reply button under the individual message they want to reply to. Plain and simple.
To start or participate in a thread, simply tap the reply button under individual messages.
And also like Facebook, users could not create a thread within an existing thread.
According to Instagram,
"Now, when you hit reply underneath any comment, your response will automatically be grouped right underneath it in a thread."
The update is rolling out slowly to all users through Instagram version 24 on both iOS and Android.
