After downloading / updating your Instagram application users will see a new home feed icon on top-right corner. Taping there one can see the inbox where all the received photos and videos will show up. If an unknown user sends a photo/video, it will show in Requests so one can decide if they want to view or not.

To share video / photo with friends or particular person or group, one can tap the share screen (found in Photo/video edit screen). There one can choose to share follower or Direct if one needs to share to particular people. Users can also find out as to who has seen you photos or videos.
