In Instagram’s story feature, there’s the option to pose a question for your followers to respond to, or give them an open ended forum to ask a question of their own. When someone replies to the forum, their username is usually attached to their answer.
There’s been rumors that Instagram added a new feature, allowing people to reply to these forums anonymously. The difference between the regular answers and this supposedly “anonymous” option is the text, “This user will not see your identification.”
While an anonymous answer feature would likely be widely used on the app, there isn’t actually an option to answer users’ forums without revealing your information.
This trend is a prank played by people, convincing their followers to spill their honest thoughts without fear of retribution. Unfortunately, if you answer any of these forums, the user will still be able to see your username.
At this time, there isn’t an option to do an anonymous poll or forum, unless you use a third-party option.
