Instagram recently introduced some new functions, which, however, not everyone will like. One of them is the ability to reply to posts with GIFs, just like on Facebook.

In addition, since March 20, Meta has launched paid verification and "blue check" services for social networks Facebook and Instagram in the United States. Users will have to pay $12 per month for a verified account, or $15 if they pay through the App Store and Google Play, as these platforms charge a commission.
