Instagram says it’s “a way to start conversations during moments when you don’t necessarily have a photo or video to share.” In other words, it’s a way to ensure that people continue posting even if they have totally run out of content ideas.

The new feature can be found in the sticker drawer. Tap it, type out a prompt, and place it on your post. When friends see it, they can tap the sticker to send replies. Somewhat confusingly, replies will appear in the list of people who have viewed your story, which appears in the bottom-left corner of the post. (Wasn’t Instagram Direct built for this exact sort of thing?)

The questions sticker is rolling out today on Android and iOS.

Instagram test lets public accounts remove followers .
<p>Instagram has confirmed that it's testing an option to remove followers while maintaining a public account.</p>It's easy to see why you'd want the option with a public account. You may not want an ex or former friend commenting on everything you do, for instance. And if you've ever seen the creeps that tend to post leering comments on women's Instagram selfies... you get the idea. This won't prevent sketchier types from viewing your feed, but it will relegate them to passive observers.
