Popular photo sharing platform, Instagram has launched its latest feature – Instagram Stories, a new feature that will allow people to capture and share multiple photos and videos which will appear together in a slideshow format – your story.
With Instagram Stories, you don’t have to worry about over-posting as photos and videos in “your story” will disappear after 24 hours and will not appear on your profile allowing reactions and conversations to stay private. In addition, stories are easy to share with just who you want and hide from who you want.
To view someone’s story, just tap on their profile photo. It’s easy to view stories at your own pace: tap to go back and forward or swipe to jump to another person’s story. If you want to comment on something you see, you can tap and send a private message to that person on Instagram Direct. Unlike regular posts, there are no likes or public comments.
Instagram has always been a place to share the moments people want to remember. Now users can also share highlights and everything in between.
Instagram Stories has begun to roll out globally on iOS and Android.
