New Instagram feature allows users to share photos, videos with specific people

Expanding the range of its mobile photo sharing service, Instagram has introduced Instagram Direct, which allows users to send photos or short videos to a specific user or group of users. The feature “is a really fun way to bring people together around photos and videos, just like you would at home,” said Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom, at a press conference Thursday in New York. Systrom likened the new service to sharing physical photos with a group of friends, where you “take out the old shoe box, sit around the table and show people photos of your vacation.” The feature expands Instagram’s role as a conduit for sharing photos with the public to include direct person-to-person communications, or communications among a more intimate group of people, Systrom said.
