Just when you think you’ve figured out Snapchat, here comes photo sharing social media site Instagram with its own version of short-lived mini videos called, Stories.
If you update your Instagram app, you will notice above your newsfeed your profile photo with a red circle around it and following your profile are circles of others on your follow list in a single row who have also uploaded stories. If you press on that button, your camera will open and you will be given the option to take a photo or press down and hold on the play button and record a 20 second video.
The first few stories I witnessed were filled with bewildered people testing it out and in awe of how similar it is to Snapchat. There aren’t cool filters like snapchat and there are other significant differences you can read about in Mashable HERE!
