Instagram is all about expressing yourself and Stories is allowing users to do that in even more intricate and captivating ways! With over 300 million daily users (and growing), Instagram Stories is a platform you need to be active on. Instagram recently rolled out two brand new features: Stories Highlights and Stories Archives. They both allow for more flexibility and creativity when it comes to incorporating Instagram Stories into your profile. We can't wait to see how brands and users utilize these exciting new additions. Read on to find out how you can use and integrate these new features on your own grid!
This new feature is located on your main profile, and allows you to highlight specific stories you've already shared. You are now able to express your personality or tell a visual brand story by grouping previously shared stories into highlights and featuring them on your profile. This feature is also helpful for keeping certain stories for longer than 24 hours! Your Stories Highlights will show up right below your bio, so they're easy for your followers to see and click through. How to Use:
*Tip: You can create Stories Highlights out of anything you've shared to your Stories previously. Use this feature to share your favorite moments, highlight a new product launch, share a giveaway, and so much more!
The new Stories Archive feature goes hand-in-hand with Highlights. From now on, whenever you post Instagram Stories, they'll be automatically saved to your archive once they expire - so they'll be filed away for safekeeping! That way, you can easily view them or share them again in you Stories Highlights! How to Use:
We hope this overview will help you navigate Instagram's amazing new story features! We're excited to start using them to make our own profile even more inspirational and informative. Let us know if you have any questions - we're only a DM away!
