Instagram Introduces Location, Hashtag Stories

Instagram Introduces Location, Hashtag Stories”

Snapchat has introduced a feature that lets users "create a whole new story". The name of the poster does appear in these stories so if you don't want Instagram users who you don't have following you to be able see the story you'll have to remove it. A new story ring positioned at the top of Explore gives Instagram users access to all the stories happening near them.

Snap has been busy adding features in an effort to keep its users interested, while trying to stay ahead of rival Instagram.

You can also view stories based on a hashtag you search on the "Explore" page. It's a feature that will show off the massive amount of photos and videos being shared around the world every day on Instagram. "If you want to be a creative company, you have got to be comfortable with and basically enjoy the fact that people copy your stuff", Spiegel said. If your story makes the cut, you'll see a line at the top of your viewer list showing how many people saw it in the larger story. "Hashtag stories will be rolling out over the coming weeks". For example, a photo or video tagged with the "San Francisco" location sticker could appear in a location Story with posts from others who used the same "San Francisco" tag.

Snapchat has come under heavy pressure from Facebook in recent months, after the social networking giant adopted several features similar to Snapchat's core functions across its apps, including Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram.

Before you embark on your Instagram journey, you should read some helpful tips about how to use the the feature to its fullest potential.

Now upload your stories of birthdays, night outs and many more snaps on Snapchat.

"In the same note, White wrote that Snap has estimated that 25% of daily active users post a Story each day and each available platform caters to niche users".
