Meta-owned photo-sharing and short video app Instagram does a pretty good job when it comes to sharing posts, stories, and chats with your friends. However, some options, like creating an Instagram group, are still not transparent.
Group chats on Instagram can be useful if users want to address their followers, especially if they are creators.
