Users can view the active status of someone they follow using the Active Now feature. An Instagram user who has a green dot next to their name is active and online at the moment. It can be difficult to understand the true mechanics of this feature. When a user is currently offline, their accounts sometimes display as Active Now with the green dot that goes along with it.
Users who are attempting to contact someone who is now appearing as Active Now but is actually offline may run into problems because of this. This article will analyse the root cause of the problem and offer solutions and preventative measures.

“A lot of the previous Gothams have had Bruce situated in a mansion in the suburbs. He comes in to fight crime and goes back to the suburbs. Bruce is of the city, a part of the fabric […] That made perfect sense as a center for operations for Bruce and it allowed us to explore all the beautiful decay and patina which set the tone for the rest of the film.”
You will be able to tell whether someone is online at that moment if you follow them and they follow you back. The status Active Now and a green dot will be displayed next to their picture. However, you won’t be able to access this information if a user doesn’t follow you or hasn’t given you a direct message. Here’s why, regrettably, Instagram’s active status is not always accurate.
Where are your manors?
It could appear that someone is active when they aren’t if enough time hasn’t passed for the Active status to be changed. Before someone’s activity status accurately appears, there must be a lapse of roughly 10 minutes. You may need to wait for roughly 10 minutes before someone’s genuine active status is revealed if they stopped using Instagram a few minutes ago but it still shows that they are.
“Wayne Tower, in the movies, is usually the business hub of Wayne Enterprises, but we wanted to take this gothic tower and turn it into Bruce’s home. It would be an old skyscraper, long past its glory days like you might see at the base of Central Park or some grand old building in Chicago. A place the Rockefellers or Vanderbilts could have lived in.
For me, one of the main references for the tower was the Maysles brothers’ documentary Grey Gardens, about a reclusive mother and daughter living alone in an old derelict New York mansion. The idea of getting the decay to show through so that you can see what once was but is no longer-and that sense of the beauty of decay, and how that was reflective of Bruce, of his character was key. He doesn’t care about any of the traditional family history anymore. He’s so into his obsessive mission, it’s like a drug for him, he’s addicted to being Batman. So when you look closely at the inside of Wayne Manor, it looks like somebody has just let everything fall apart.”
Back on track
How many individuals are not aware that Instagram is still running in the background, even when they are not actively using it, is startling. The only method to make sure Instagram isn’t running in the background on your device is to shut it off entirely as opposed to just keeping it open.
“If the Wayne [family] built this tower in the twenties, what would be below this tower that would offer an opportunity for a cave? There’s an underground train station at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. The myth is that there’s a train parked there all the time, and the idea is that whenever the president is in town, if there’s ever an emergency and he has to get out of town, they could take him through this secret tunnel at the Waldorf and get him out of town discreetly. I always loved that idea and thought it was so romantic, so I thought about the idea that if you were the Waynes and you had created this city, you would probably have your own secret train terminal under the tower.”
Other users will perceive you as engaged if Instagram is open in the background. You must close the Instagram tabs to show that you are not using Instagram.
