CREEPY... Instagram now has an "Activity Status" that tells you when your friends and followers "were last active on Instagram apps".
WhatsApp also enables users to turn off their activity status if they want to be more discreet.
If you don't know what we're talking about, Instagram has rolled out a new feature that will show your followers/contacts when you were last active on the app or if you're now active.
Now, for those who don't want that information up, there is a way to disable that feature.
We've asked Instagram for comment on whether it thinks the feature should be turned on by default, and how it plans to address users' privacy concerns.
Instagram now lets users see when their friends last checked the app on their mobile device.
Twitter user @emilysarpietro slammed the new feature, saying "nothing's private any more" and promising she would be "definitely coming off social media soon". If they are looking at a profile of someone who follows them but they don't follow, the profile will show "follow back" option instead of just 'follow'.
Now stalking has reached a whole new level, letting stalkers keep an eye on who is ignoring them or not on this app.
The unnerving feature appears on Instagram's direct messages section beneath followers you've been chatting with.
