When you think of Instagram, you probably think of all those countless photos you took of your food or dogs and uploaded them hoping thousands of people would give you a like, or nowadays, a heart!
However, Instagram is changing the game! Or copying the game…
Instagram has officially launched their Instagram Story! It’s a new feature that allows Instagram Users to post on their story multiple photos and videos, while allowing the user to draw, write, and upload without having to worry about their feed being flooded with recent posts.
Basically Instagram borrowed Snapchat’s idea of instantly sharing in-the-moment photos and videos, but also still have the feature of uploading single photos or videos to your profile feed.
As stated on the official Instagram Blog, “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.”
