Sometimes our favourite apps get a new update that we absolutely love.

Other times, the updates make us want to throw our freakin' phones at the wall. 

We think the latest addition to the wondrous app that is Instagram might lend you to the latter option, because it's just decided to take on board one of the features you hate about Snapchat... 

The one where everyone knows when you've screenshotted a pic of your crush.

Of course, the screenshots aren't always of your crush and aren't always of something you shouldn't be screenshotting, but they're the things you're likely to freak the f$%# out about.

The social media app will now let its users send pics privately to friends, which then disappear seconds after viewing them.

Sound familiar?

Instagram will also let you know when someone screenshots said picture. 

Thankfully the app isn't making all of our screenshots known.

Only one's sent privately will be notified, so be careful who you're sending stuff to...

Or it could be a good way to see if you're crush thinks you're cute and wants to keep a pic of you. 

For purely innocent reasons.
