The Instagram Stories countdown allows users to create a holiday event on the social network. The sticker, available on the iPhone (iOS) app and Android phones, can be used to attract friends to participate in a countdown to New Year 2018. The following tip shows how to create the count so that friends can activate alerts and share the sticker in your stories.
When defining the resource, just add a name that defines the event or an end of year message. That way, friends who follow the count will receive an alert with the message. To learn how to use the new Instagram Stories sticker to create a new year count, check out the walkthrough below.
