Even Instagram admits that some people are using Instagram too much. That’s why the Meta-owned platform is now introducing its Quiet Mode, to encourage some users to spend time off the app a bit.
Some people are using Instagram so much, they’re starting to turn into Instagram filters themselves. They’re constantly adding “Valencia” to their skin tone, “Clarendon” to their mood, and “Gingham” to their wardrobe. They’re taking so many pictures of their food that they’re starting to resemble the dishes they’re photographing. And don’t even get us started on the number of selfies they’re taking. They’re basically creating their own personal “Hall of Mirrors” on the internet. But hey, at least they’re keeping the “gram” on Instagram, right?
No more notifications
When you enable Quiet Mode on Instagram, you’ll be able to silence the constant notifications, and truly enjoy your offline life without interruption. Quiet Mode also comes with an auto-response feature that automatically sends a message to anyone who sends you a direct message, letting them know that you’re currently away from the app and that you’ll see their message when you come back. This way, you don’t have to worry about missing important messages or feeling guilty for not responding to your friends, as the app will do it for you. How cool is that, right? It’s awesome!
It’s like having an Instagram butler to take care of the app while you’re away. So, if you’re looking to take a break from the never-ending scroll and enjoy some peace and quiet, Quiet Mode is the way to go!
Instagram was originally called “Codename” and was developed as a way for Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, the co-founders, to share their photos with their friends. It was later changed to “Instagram” as a combination of “instant camera” and “telegram”.
