Sharing photos or videos to your friends or loved ones in Instagram on iPhone is an absolute fun. Unlike other social sites, Instagram provides you efficient tools to customize your photos as desired. Your creation is liked, commented and appreciated by many people.

However, there are certain personal photos which people want to share only with their close friends and not everyone else. Supposing you have a nice friend on Instagram to whom you want to send some private photos, how would you send them?

Instagram lets you send direct photos or videos to your friends. However, there are some limitations to it–

  • You can send photos to maximum 15 people at once
  • The sent photos can’t be shared through Instagram on other social sites such as, Facebook andTwitter
  • You can neither tag people nor use hashtags with them

All these limitations don’t matter if you want your stuffs to remain private, do they?
