Yesterday, Instagram unveiled a new feature, “Stories”. Much like the popular Snapchat feature, it will enable users to share their day-to-day activities through videos and pictures.
Other features include a 24-hour time frame, which means your stories will disappear after 24 hours. Being able to add emojis and texts to pictures and videos, sending to a list of followers as well as blocking certain people from seeing it - basically many of the features which make Snapchat unique.
Users took to the web to express their views. Let’s just say they weren’t completely impressed….
Instagram bring out stories to compete with snapchat, people use it to promote their snapchat. Brilliant. pic.twitter.com/N9vkZqEbzx— John McMahon (@IAmJohnMcMahon) August 4, 2016
