The Instagram Notes feature differs from Stories in way that it only offers an option to share text with a limit of 60 characters. Unlike Stories, users can’t see which friends have read or viewed their notes. However, the user will get complete control over their privacy and will be able to decide whether they want to share their notes with the close friend’s list or any particular group of friends.
