Instagram 6 seconds

Instagram has a wide number of features we all can enjoy. However, in all the time the platform has been in our lives, there has never been a game for us to play. Well, that just changed. You see, ever since Instagram gave us the option to create our own Story filters, there is no limit as to how far we can take our imagination. 

As a matter of fact, some filters go viral and famous people start using them on their Stories. But, enough about that. Let’s talk about the filter that users are now using to play on Instagram. The 6 seconds blink filter. Or as every Instagram user is calling it these days – The 6 seconds blink challenge.

The 6 Seconds Blink Challenge

First of all, let’s put some context to this new trend. As a social media user, you have probably come across these fun gifs where there’s a figure moving very fast. A mini-game where the goal is to tap the screen at the right time to make the figure stop where its silhouette is. Well, the 6 seconds challenge is very similar to that. 

As a matter of fact, this filter is also about precision. You need to blink at exactly 6 seconds to make the counter above your head stop. And yes, we understand it sounds simple. But, sometimes the simplest things are those that prove the most difficult. It sounds like a completely contradictory thing to say. But, you see, this challenge is indeed somewhat hard. 

You need to blink at 6 seconds by the millisecond. That means not 5.999 or 6.0001. 6 seconds exactly. Still think it’s easy? Go on, give it a try and leave us your Instagram handle so we can go check it out.
