Instagram has now introduced ‘Stories’. In which you can upload multiple photos and videos, and that will be shared as a slideshow. You can edit the photos with text and drawing tools before sharing them on Instagram Stories. The story will disappear after 24 hours and it will not appear on your profile page. This enables a user to share their day long pictures and videos as a story, and you can see all the people who have shared their stories at the top of home tab. If you want to see anyone’s story, then you have to tap on their profile picture.
While you are watching a person’s story you can switch to the next story by swiping left or right, you can tap on the picture or videos to skip to next one. The privacy of your story is as same as it is for your other pictures, you can also see who is watching your story by swiping up or you can also hide the story from any particular person who is following you. Instagram now has an add button at the top, which can be used to take photos and videos instantly from the camera. Whenever you take a photo you have the option to add it to your story. The drawing and editing tool will help you out to edit your picture quickly.
After the Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram, we have seen many new features getting introduced. Recently, a complete revamped user interface was launched for its Android and IOS app. Few days back, the number of active Instagram users have crossed 500 million and is expected to grow further in the emerging countries like India, where many users are still not connected to the internet.
