With Instagram Stories, the network “steals” Snapchat resources to make you even more engaged

There's something new in the area for those who use and love Instagram! I mean, if you also use Snapchat, it's not really a novidaaade, but ?

This is the Instagram Stories, a new feature that allows us to share moments from our days not those you want to keep in your profile. it is basically a way of putting together several photos, videos in a single presentation, a story.

With the feature, Instagram started to offer some new text and drawing tools, very similar to what Snapchat does. The ?icing on the cake?? Photos and videos will disappear after 24 hours and will not appear in your profile history or timeline.

But how will you then view the stories of your friends / family? Simple, you will see them in a bar at the top of your feed. When there is something new, the profile photo will have a colored ring around it. To see someone's story, just touch the photo. You advance / rewind a story by touching it; to jump, just slide your finger. If you want to comment on something, you can touch and send a private message to the person through Instagram Direct, unlike traditional posts, there are no likes or public comments.

Instagram Stories Privacy

The stories you post follow your account's privacy settings. If you define your account as private, the stories are visible only to your followers. However, you can also easily hide your entire story from someone you want, even if that person follows you. When watching your own story, swipe up and see who can view the photos and videos. You can even choose a piece of history to share on your profile.

Did you like the news? It will be released gradually to everyone in the coming weeks, according to Facebook.
