Instagram Screenshot Notifications Just Arrived, For Some Reason
Please stop doing this to us.

Gone are the days of the carefree lurk, as Instagram introduces the feature that literally nobody wanted.
The photo-sharing app rolled out it's live video feature for all users this week, along with a new section that allows you to send Snapchat-esque disappearing photos and videos to friends. Hey, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
Along with the exciting new update came the quick realisation that screenshots of the disappearing photos aren't private. WHAT THE DAMN HELL?! Basically, it's the same as Snapchat in every. single. way.
For years we've been able to scroll along any Insta feed and take a screen grab without the user being wise to it, but for some reason the new sneaky feature is not being treated to the same lurk-level privilege.
Why was it necessary to introduce this feature? No idea, but alert literally everyone you know before they start creeping.
