Instagram today announced that it has added an option to reply to Instagram stories with a photo or a video, allowing Instagram users to do more than simply comment on a friend's stories.
When watching a story, you'll see a new camera button that can be used to snap a photo/video or choose an image that was taken within the last 24 hours from your camera roll. There are options to use Boomerang or Rewind with videos, and there are stickers and filters to apply to both photos and videos.
Photos and videos that friends send as story replies will show up in the Direct inbox, where they can be viewed with a tap. A photo or video sticker will also be added to the story itself, but it is only viewable by the user who shared the story. When you view a story reply, friends will be notified of screenshots or replays.
Instagram users who have the latest version of the iOS app installed will see the new video reply options. Instagram can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I went ahead and took pictures of the stuffed animals. Who knows...maybe I will make an instagram account for them. Apparently stranger things do happen in 2017. :eek:
[doublepost=1499358635][/doublepost] And yet all the changes you hate have allowed Instagram to grow faster than any other social media network right now. They've grown Instagram Stories in 5 months to the point it took Snapchat 5 years to reach and they've now far eclipsed Snapchat in active users.
[doublepost=1499360737][/doublepost] Nice to know you speak for how every user of the platforms use them. Social media can be a nice way of keeping in touch and sharing interesting moments from your life with people you can't see all the time. If you treat it with a negative mindset you won't get anything out of it.
