Facebook fight Snapchat send Instagrams letting the Messenger

Snapchat sends 200 million messages a day private photos. WhatsApp sends 325 million. These are scary numbers for Facebook that shows visual communication is growing, so you just start allowing Messenger for iOS users to send Instagrams and pictures from other albums do not move the camera. This shows that, although not push, that is serious about the trend in visual communication.

Have you been able to send picture messages in an album for a while "with Messenger for Android, but iOS version previously only selects the reel. The problem is that when you post to Instagram is saved a copy of the building a disk device "Instagram" separately.

Now click the paper clip icon to compose a message and then add pictures, there is now a drop-down menu at the top to draw pictures of their other albums. This is not exactly direct Instegration (sorry), but it certainly brings photo sharing application closer to its parent. Facebook has been delivering considerably acquire Instagram, which lives up to its promise.

[Updated: At first glance, this is a small update. Nor is there any API or other direct connection between Messenger and Instagram. What matters is what signals the intentions of Facebook with the visual communication. ]

But in the 16 months since the billionaire Sale, there was a big change in the way people use the photos. For years I have shot with care and shared with many people - similar to what we did in the analog film era. But chat Snapchat and international applications changed. Suddenly, the photos were taken shamelessly arm and not shared in private by its artistic value, but to get a message.

This has become the year of visual communication.

Yet an equal contribution to its rapid growth in popularity is forcing communicate visually. You can not send the text alone.

Thus, photo messaging has much in common with stickers, small pre-made illustrations and animations that can be sent in many chat applications. I sent a lot of them and I feel I have been a huge success for Facebook. Both are a substitute for the boring text.

Messages are more personal photos, however. Where are you? What are you doing? How do you feel? You can answer all these questions with a quick photo. Is not it annoying how long or generic type messages as text messages "at home", "Chillin '" Okay ". Each location, activity and expression of the face is unique, with visual communication. This is what makes it addictive yet satisfying.

Instagram photos ReelThose two words might be second compound surname Facebook. ** The first serious attempt of visual communication, the Saca Snapchat clone quickly fell through the roof and I have not been pushed by month. But why force people to download something new when the social network runs some of the most used mobile applications in the world?

And here we are, messaging on Facebook Instagram Messenger. Invite applications for inclusion in the main Facebook soon. It could become users to convert their favorite Instagrams convey emotions. What are you doing? Latte art. How do you feel? Portrait of laughter. And if enough users find the option to decline and use, you can also start taking Instagrams with the purpose of sharing. It might also be a good way to ensure that a specific friend see his masterpiece, if you know you do not frequent the Instagram feed.

The question now is, will add Instagram private photos and video messages?
