What Do Instagram Notes Mean
Instagram’s “notes” feature lets you post brief messages of up to 60 characters for your close friends or followers, and they can respond through DMs. These notes stay at the top of the Chats list for 24 hours before disappearing. Alongside thoughts, you can also add music or location as notes.
If some notes become bothersome, Instagram provides an option to mute them. In this article, we’ll guide you through a few simple steps to mute notes from a specific user.
