Instagram could benefit from one of Snapchat’s best features; Everything you need to know about the friends card rumor


Instagram could benefit from one of Snapchat’s best features if a new report is to be believed. Meta’s photo-sharing social media platform recently received several new features, including group conversation starters in Notes, AI stickers for Stories, carousel posts, and more. Now the platform could benefit from a new feature called Friends Map, which will work similar to that present in Snapchat.

Friends card on Instagram

In an X job. Leaker and mobile developer Alessandro Paluzzi has shed some light on Instagram’s Friends Map feature. This would allow Instagram users to discover what their friends are sharing on the platform. Users can leave notes only for the card which can be seen by their friends. Anything with a location tag will also be visible on the map. The feature will also offer users the choice to select which friends they want to share content with.

On Snapchat, users can access Snap Map and see their friends’ activities by location and what’s happening around them. However, it’s unclear if the friends card on Instagram will work in the same way. The leaker suggested that Instagram indicates that the user’s location will be end-to-end encrypted.

One of the screenshots of the feature in the app reads: “Choose who can see your last active location. This will not affect the visibility of the notes you leave on the card. You can always change this in settings. Your location will only be updated when you open Instagram.

Paluzzi first shared details about the Friends Card on Instagram in November, and it appears the company is still working on ironing out the details before rolling it out to beta testers and then the public. However, all information is based on unofficial sources and should therefore be taken with a grain of salt until Instagram officially rolls out the Friends Map feature.
