Instagram Stories Now More Popular Than Snapchat


According to Facebook, Instagram stories are now more popular than Snapchat. The social media giant said it counted more than 200 million people using Instagram Stories, which is more than the 158 million users Snapchat counted across its entire app at the end of last year.

Instagram Stories is a feature that allows people upload photos and videos that disappear after 24 hours.

The photo app service, which was purchased by Facebook five years ago for $1 billion(N380bn), has been adding Snapchat-like features.

Facebook continues to borrow ideas from Snapchat and other apps, adding new features like location-based digital stickers you can put on your posts (like a sticker celebrating you are in Lagos ) and even the ability to create a mashup of multiple selfies.
