Getting started with Instagram Stories
Instagram has a new feature called stories, which lets you post photos and videos that will disappear after 24 hours.
It should, because it's pretty similar to SnapChat.
You can add text, drawings, and even filters to your stories, like you would on Snapchat.
You can also add older photos and videos that you've shot in the last 24 hours, and even Boomerangs and Hyperlapses.
Simply swipe down when in the story's camera and choose the content you wanna add.
To check out other stories, head to the main feed and click on a friend's circle at the top.
If there's a red outline, it means there's something new.
Otherwise, it will just be a circle with your friend's picture in it.
You can tap to go through the photos and videos in the story, or swipe forward to jump to another person's story, or swipe back to go to a previous one.
While there are no likes or public comments You can tap towards the bottom of the picture to send a private message.
If you don't want anyone messaging you, head to settings, click story settings and choose off.
To hide someone from seeing your story, tap on hide my story from, select the users from the list, and tap done.
You will still be able to see your Instagram posts, but not your stories.
Lastly, if you're curious to see who's looking at your stories, open your story and swipe up on the screen.
At the bottom of the view counter are the name of the people who viewed your stories.
