Apart from the confessions made about the Cambridge Analytica, Facebook CEO also revealed that in order to make Instagram a success he copied the popular "Stories" feature of Snapchat. Instagram seems to think that rapid feature development is the best distraction. Apart from emoji patterns and sticker-enhanced selfies, the Instagram Nametag feature will also work with a plain Instagram purple gradient as the background, and the username placed in the centre. The report claims that Zuckerberg was anxious that if they did not do something to change up the way Instagram is used, they might miss out on an entire generation of users.

At this juncture, the beta users will not be able to share or scan other Nametags but this feature is expected to be implemented soon.

Scroll through the options at the bottom of the screen until you find Focus, it's located between Boomerang and Superzoom.

Now Instagram, a Facebook property, has decided to make the option available too.

While its parent company faces a grilling on Capitol Hill, Instagram is rolling out some fun new features to keep users amused.

The whole operation is exclusively focused on building next-generation satellites, rockets, and craft for deep space exploration. The 43rd PLSV-C41 in XL configuration will also launch RNSS-1I Satellite from First Launch Pad (FLP) of SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota .

Now, Instagram has rolled out the tool, dubbed Focus, more widely, effectively adding a camera mode that blurs out picture backgrounds while keeping the foreground sharp. The "Focus" format will be available on iPhone 6S and up, as well as select Android devices, as part of the Instagram version 39.0 update. Once you have taken a photo (or a video), you can add filters, stickers and more to it and then send it to your friends on Instagram Direct or adding to your Story.

With this new Focus Mode selected, all you have to do is point the camera at someone's face and the background will blur automatically.

Instagram has been insulated to the revenue drive of platforms like its parent company, Facebook, and WhatsApp, another sibling subsidiary.

This step will be a challenge to social media rivals life Snapchat as it doesn't come with such camera features.
