Instagram is one of the top social media platforms today, taking a right after Facebook. One of the major differences between Instagram and Facebook is their target users. While Facebook attracts old-school millennials and boomers, Instagram is partial towards Gen Z and Alpha.
You might be wondering the reason behind this. What made the younger generations choose Instagram over Facebook? After all, both platforms are owned by the Meta Group of Companies and are regularly updated with new features.
The question is, is Facebook happy with having an entire generation uninterested in it? And if not, then what is it going to do about it?
Well, if and when Facebook makes its move, we’ll be the first ones to tell you.
In today’s blog, we’ll discuss if Instagram notifies a user when you watch one of their Instagram videos. Read on until the end of the blog to learn all about it!
If You View a Video on Instagram, Will They Get Notified or Will The Person Know?
If you accidentally saw someone’s video who you’re not on good terms with, you might be wondering if they found out about it. Although it doesn’t matter at the end of the day, as it is just Instagram, you will risk coming across as desperate or stuck up.
Luckily for you, there’s no risk involved here. It’s quite impractical to notify a person every time someone sees one of their videos, don’t you think? And since Instagram is highly concerned about its users’ experience on the platform, it’s unlikely that such a feature will ever be introduced.
However, if you’ve accidentally liked the video you weren’t supposed to see, you might be in a little trouble. This is because while Instagram doesn’t show any users the views on their posts, they do show the likes. Even if you go back and unlike the video now, the damage is done because they’ve already received and probably even seen the notification by now.
