What’s the Story with the Instagram Story?
Instagram has gone through quite an evolution from a photo sharing app to a platform where videos created on Instagram Reels provide an opportunity to be seen by viewers well beyond your followers and Instagram Stories allow you to get a bit more personal with your most loyal followers.
Stories are found along the top of your feed and are accessed by tapping on the circles where the content only lives for 24 hours before disappearing. Some stories can be saved a highlights which are found on your profile between your bio and your thumbnails.
