We all know Instagram to be one of the best places to be if you want to check on your favourite role model or daily celebrity activities.
The platform has a story feature just like the Facebook story and WhatsApp status.
The stories feature were launched in August 2016. Instagram story is a feature that allows users to take photos, have the option to add layers and then post them on their Instagram status for 24 hours, and after that, it will disappear.
There are so many advantages when it comes to using Instagram stories. Here are some of them:
It helps you generate leads – Using Instagram stories helps your viewers see your products, and the more they see them, the more they become interested and then buy from you.
Improve brand visibility – there are many brands on Instagram, some use ads to increase visibility, but if you don’t have that extra budget on ads, you can use one simple tool: your Instagram stories.
Posting your products on your Instagram stories is free, and all your followers will also see it.
Helps your followers how your day is being spent – We all have people that always check on us.
Although some will never message us, we secretly rely on our posts to check what’s going on with our lives.
Well, Instagram helps you do that. Not every picture you have to add to your Instagram photos needs to be seen by your followers for a short time.
You went out with your friends and then decided to take some pictures at the event. These pics don’t need to be added to your Instagram gallery.
There are so many advantages to using Instagram stories, and we’ve just covered some of them.
The sad thing is Instagram stories only allows you to upload videos in 15 seconds. When you post a long video, Instagram will then split the video into 15 seconds sections.
Now it is not going to be 15 seconds anymore. According to Wabetainfo, Instagram will soon allow its users to upload videos for up to 60 seconds.
When you post a video to your stories, it will not be split into 15seconds again, and your followers can watch the full 60 seconds video.
This move by Instagram will make watching videos more interesting WhatsApp, which is even one of the popular messaging app, allows its users to upload videos that are not more than 30seconds to their WhatsApp status.
Hopefully, whatsapp also follows this significant move by Instagram, thereby making users upload videos up to 60 seconds long.
