Once you go ahead and tap the "Your Note" button, it will open a new page that will let you add a note for your followers. There is a description on top of the page that mentions how your followers will not be notified when you add a note. However, they will be able to see the note for 24 hours and reply with a message. The page also includes a Share with a section that lets you share your notes with "Followers you follow back" or "Close friends."

Once you go ahead and share a new note, your followers can reply to it by simply tapping on the note on the main chat page. This will open a text box with the note itself, a profile picture, and the user's Instagram handle. It will also show how long ago the note was shared.
