Instagram Introduces Location, Hashtag Stories

Instagram Introduces Location, Hashtag Stories”

While the news has recently been filled more with Instagram's copies of Snapchat's features, here's a chance for Snapchat to capture back some of the spotlight.

Almost three years later, Instagram is adding the same feature to its clone of Snapchat Stories, which shows photos and videos that disappear after 24 hours. Instagram announced on Tuesday that it has added two new ways to search for stories: Bubbling them up to the top of the Explore tab based on location or hashtag. Because Snapchat's Our Stories are curated by humans, the company usually showcases just a few of them at a time.

"It makes sure this scales all over the world", Instagram director of product Blake Barnes said. Tap the new Create Story icon in the top-right corner of the main Stories screen.

The collections, also known as "stories", are selected by an algorithm and serve as a portal to other places so users can see what people around the world are doing, said Blake Barnes, Instagram's director of product.

That's Snap's pitch for the new feature, which it calls custom stories.

Many people have flocked to Twitter to share their feelings about Facebook Stories and numerous posts said the service falls short.
