Step aside Snapchat, Instagram just stole your main feature

This is MAJOR change for Insty.

One of the best things about Snappy is My Story – where you can create a timeline of your night out with friends, your day at school, Christmas celebrations etc etc. We all know how it works.

It was the one thing Instagram didn’t have (aside from those crazy filters but #details). Well soz Evan Spiegel coz Mark Zuckerberg has snatched your idea and introduced… Instagram stories!

Now you can document your life and post it on not one but TWO social media apps. Ain’t life grand?

Just like Snappy, you’ll be able to share multiple pics and vids in a highlights reel format, there will also be text and drawing tools for you to pimp up your posts with.

Also, the pics and vids will disappear after 24 hours … sounding familiar yet?

“You'll see stories from people you follow in a bar at the top of your feed — from your best friends to your favourite popular accounts. When there's something new to see, their profile photo will have a colourful ring around it. To view someone's story, just tap on their profile photo.” Insta wrote in a blog post.

This new feature will be coming to a phone/tablet near you in the next few weeks (so by end of August). Mark your calendar.
