If you are already pissed off by Snapchatters constantly having their phones extended trying to capture life’s every moment, your life is about to get a whole lot worse. Instagram today announced they are releasing something called “Instagram stories”; that is Snapchat for you if Evan Spiegel isn’t willing to sell yet.
What techcrunch is calling Snapchat for adults, instagram stories are rolling out over the next few weeks.
“Today, we’re introducing Instagram Stories, a new feature that lets you share all the moments of your day, not just the ones you want to keep on your profile. As you share multiple photos and videos, they appear together in a slideshow format: your story.” Much like snapchat, this new story feature isn’t going to hang around for the longest... They apparently leave after 24 hours.”
“You’ll see stories from people you follow in a bar at the top of your feed — from your best friends to your favorite popular accounts. When there’s something new to see, their profile photo will have a colorful ring around it.
