Bullying is by far the most controversial issue that still hasn’t completely stopped. If it’s not happening often in real life but it’d be happening on social media.
Therefore, IG introduces a new Instagram update on Profile Restrictions feature. It is completely different then block…

The person that bullying on your profile can continue to bully but you won’t be seeing them at all but they’re seeing themselves.

IG Story Create Interface – Best new Instagram update ever…
Instead of having to use separate IG story apps like Mojo to create story…
After a huge study of IG users, they receive a ton of complaint how to hard it is to swipe up to use IG Story activities such as Gifs, Countdown Timers, Quizzes, Polls and Q&A boxes, etc.
Now they separated the most used feature that makes our life easier.
These are two examples of Instagram Create Interface… and there are more to the Create.
Instead of having to use other Instagram story editors, you can pick and choose all the features in there. However, I’d personally choose to use story editors which designed to have more features and to be more creative.
Do you see the green boxes in the photo?
If you want to pick different styles, that’s where you’d tab into.
- Open your IG story and look at the bottom of your phone.
- Slide over to the Create interface.
- Enjoy all the features and have a look around.
