Instagram is launching a new feature today called Stories, which lets you share slideshows of photos and videos over the course of your day. These moments make up your Story, which you can share for 24 hours before they disappear. You don't have to worry about Stories cluttering your feed, either.
Your Stories will follow the same privacy settings that you have for the rest of your account, so if you're set to private, your Story will only be seen by your followers. You can also select who gets to see a Story, even if they follow you. You can also see who has viewed your story with a quick swipe up.
Stories are only just starting to roll out, and will launch across the world in Instagram for Android (opens in new tab) and iOS over the coming weeks.
Basically taking this from snapchat. Posted via the Android Central App
Doing everything they can to try and be snapchat...
Who cares if they used something snapchat did three years ago. If it's useful and adds to the platform, great.
It would be one thing if it was a feature that you could use when you go to find it...but when it's all over everything, I find reason to complain. I really dislike the direction Instagram is going lately. Anyone know of any rising alternatives?
Kind of funny. One of my accounts got it but the other didn't.
