Instagram is full of updates
Instagram has established itself as the most modern social network for several years. More than 1.2 billion people use it around the world. Unbelievable!
However, the application faces competitors. TikTok is gaining momentum, which is why Insta is reacting. The update changed the feed, to stick to the TikTok interface. But it seems unsatisfactory Internet users fleeing the app !!
This update aims to highlight video content, such as the Reels. An idea that delighted Insta addicts. In effect, only three stories were visible to subscribersthe rest was available just by clicking on the option “see all”.
However, there are a few techniques to be more visible in the application. Some useful tips gain subscribers. Little tips like taking care of hashtags, sharing with your companions or even betting on quality stories will surely help you!
In the coming weeks, Instagram therefore intends to add a much more serious system. This is a kidnapping warning. Adam Mosseri, head of the social network, announced on Wednesday, June 1st its implementation in the American version. MCE TV tells you more!
BER AMBER Alerts 🚨
This week we bring AMBER Alerts to Instagram.
This means that if you are near a missing child, you may see an AMBER alert that shows important details about the missing child, such as a photo and any other information that may be provided. 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/7Qs8JZqRl1

Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, posted the news online. The kidnapping warning is coming soon.
Indeed, implementation will take place in waves, first in the United States via the AMBER alert. Then it will be the turn of 25 more countries around the world in the next two weeks.
AMBER warnings are used to inform citizens that a child has been abducted. Instagram will therefore be using it in many countries soon. This is the case certain European countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, Greece, etc.) and elsewhere (Malaysia, Jamaica, South Korea).
France is not worried yet. There is no doubt that this will be the case in the future as well. For now, TV, RATP, SNCF, among others, are managing the warnings.
In America, a warning will appear on the Insta feed. It will be a great insert in the social media feed. In it we can see photos of the child, his name, the last place he was seen, but also practical tools for giving information.
Alerts will appear logically. Several signals will be used to know to whom to usefully send such notice. It is clear that position can play a role in targeting a specific area.
Which therefore enhances the security of the application. Not so long ago, Insta offered to see who kept the photos for greater security.
