Instagram Develops Location Sharing App

Instagram is challenging Snapchat once again with a new Instagram family messaging app called ‘Threads.’ The app is supposed to share with your close friends list on Instagram, and will be a way to stay connected with your inner circle. The app will allow users to share their location, speed, and battery life with friends in addition to the video, text, and photo messaging abilities. Threads will also allow for automatic posting which would let the app post real-time updates of your location, speed, and more. However, rather than provide an actual location, the app will say a friend is “on the move.” Facebook, Instagram’s parent company, has not confirmed anything about the partner app, and it is unclear right now when Threads would actually launch.
