People love to use Instagram because it offers users fantastic features. It is also very safe to use Instagram and you can make sure no one would be able to spy on Instagram account. One of the most popular features of this social network is Instagram stories. This feature allows users to share photos and videos with their friends that last only for 24 hours. But in its most recent update, Instagram has added a feature which allows users to archive stories. Another new feature is Instagram story highlights.
If you are interested in finding out more about these two new features, you are in the right place. In this article I will give you a thorough tutorial on what these two features are and how to use them like a pro.
Features of new Instagram update
Instagram has added a couple new features in its latest update. Instagram story highlights and story archives are two great new features that have been added to Instagram. Instagram story highlights allows users to keep a story in stories list longer than 24 hours. A separated section will be added to the user’s profile. This section consists of a bar on top of the profile which shows all the stories which have been highlighted by the user. This feature allows you to keep a story in your profile as long as you wish until you decide to delete it.
The second new feature in Instagram new update is the ability to archive stories in a separated folder in your Instagram account. Before this update, when a user shared a story, the story could be viewable only for 24 hours and after that the story would be gone for everyone including the user herself. But in Instagram latest update, stories will be archived in a folder after 24 hours and the stories will be accessible only for the user. This can help you to keep a track of all the stories you have shared on your Instagram account.
Use Instagram story highlights
It is in fact absolutely easy to highlight stories on Instagram. All you need to do is to go to your story archive, choose the story that you would like to highlight and then tap on the Highlight button on the bottom right corner. Tap on Done and the story will be viewed on the story bar in your Instagram profile. You can follow the same process for the stories that you are uploading and sharing for the first time.
You can also use a feature called “View on profile” to post you story on Instagram timeline which sounds to be a great feature to use.
