Instagram Stories allows users to upload secondary videos and photos to their Instagram accounts. You can also overlay those photos and videos with text, filters and drawings. And much like Snapchat, they expire in 24hrs.
I like the stories feature because it gives you a behind the scenes. It elaborates on the lives and personalities of your connections. I use stories to provide a more dynamic feel to my Instagram profile. I also enjoy creating a visual narrative leading up to an Instagram post, whether it be a bike ride, a dog walk, or a run. To do that, I like to capitalize on those 10 second frames that Instagram gives you for stories by building several smaller clips into a single post. I use a secondary video app; combining some smaller videos into in a 10-second video with music.
