Popular social networking site Instagram today said it is launching Instagram Stories. The new feature will allow everyone to share each and every moment in their life with our dear ones and general public alike.
Instagram Stories helps all to upload and share multiple photos and videos, and they would appear together in a slideshow format, added officials.
“It will help you to post all the moments of your day, not just the ones you want to keep on your profile. Now, you don’t have to worry about over posting. Instead, you can share as much as you want throughout the day — with as much creativity as you want. You can bring your story to life in new ways with text and drawing tools,” added the officials.

Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom has said, it will help us to experience never before seen lives of people of all countries, making our visual experiences more rich.
He also rejected statements by some skeptics about the negative uses of this by some. The positive uses of this world surely outweigh its negative uses, added the CEO.
A key feature is that all the photos and videos that appear will disappear after 24 hours and won’t appear on your profile grid or in feed.
Instagram stories also allows you to watch all the stories posted by all the people, you were following 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, said officials.
If we want to see some story you need to only tap on their profile photo. But, it’s more easy to watch our own stories without much hassles.
Just tap to go back and forward or swipe to jump to another person’s story. If you want to comment on something you see, you can tap and send a private message to that person on Instagram Direct. Unlike regular posts, there are no likes or public comments, said Instagram about the feature.
