Recently I was asked how to DM on Instagram. DM means direct message which is the same as sending a private message. Instagram is perfecting this feature and has made it much easier to use.
There are a couple of ways to send a private message which I will explain below in steps.
Sending a DM:
- Open your Instagram app
- Go to the house icon on the bottom of your screen farthest to the left
- Now look to the top right and you will see an arrow that looks like a paper airplane (see #1 on image for example). If you have received messages, you will see a red number instead. Tap whichever icon is there.
- On this screen, you can tap + New Message, select the names of the recipients, type your message, and then hit send. You can send to multiple people just the same as you would with email.
