Or maybe you do know there’s a hidden Instagram inbox, I don’t know your life.

Just like that one time we discovered that there’s a secret hidden “other other” Facebook inbox, there’s actually a hidden Instagram inbox, too. You probably knew you could send direct messages to friends of yours on the photo app. But did you know that others out there, even the ones you aren’t connected to already, can send you weird and random messages? YES, IT’S TRUE.

With the new Instagram app update floating around out there, now’s a perfect time to check this out, because you might not even know it’s there. As you know, in the top right corner of your IG page, there’s that little file “inbox” hanging out, and it only illuminates when you’ve got a message, like so:

Just because that little notification isn’t there DOESN’T mean you don’t have messages. You probably do. And hey, if you don’t see the little icon there, you’re probably not opening it, because seriously, who sends direct messages on Instagram? (Once again, I do not know your life). If you HAVEN’T looked at this in a while, you probably should. There might be lots of fan mail in there you had no idea existed.

Here at HelloGiggles, we had a few interesting messages hanging out in here we were blissfully aware of. Most of them were sweet, and there was even one marriage proposal!! But she said no 🙁

In short, WHY ARE THERE SO MANY SECRET HIDDEN OTHER ~OTHER~ INBOXES? What’s next, one for SNAPCHAT?
