Instagram adds Stories Highlights and Archive

Instagram adds Stories Highlights and Archive

The first new Stories feature is called Highlights. Stories Highlights is a new addition to your Instagram profile.

The other major update is Story Highlights, which lets you display your favorite archived Stories on your profile.

"Over the past year, Instagram Stories has become a key part of how you express yourself - but there hasn't been an easy way to keep your stories around for more than 24 hours", Instagram said in its announcement. It will reside just underneath an Instagram user's profile bio and it will allow for users to add several different Stories into one highlight.

Right now, the grid of photos on each user's profile functions kind of like a scrapbook of moments, whereas the ephemeral Stories are more for live updates, but these new features bridge that gap.

Messi's Statue In Buenos Aires Has Been Vandalized Again
The statue is located on a riverside promenade known as the Walkway of Glory in the Buenos Aires port district of Puerto Madero. A number of fans treat him as an outsider because he left for Spain at the young age of 13.

Facebook Messenger Goes Down/Offline Worldwide
In classic Facebook form, we've heard nothing official about the source of the problems, or when they're expected to be fixed. YouTube has recently received criticism over concerns with its Kids app, which features videos tailored toward children.

If you don't want Instagram to save your stories, select the three vertical dots from the archive page, go to Settings, and deselect "Save to Archive".

Meanwhile, Instagram also this week announced that any stories you post will now be automatically saved in the private archive section of your profile when they expire. The feature pins a carousel of Instagram Stories to the top of your profile, where they'll be viewable to anyone who can see your profile.

The new update seeks to address those problems by allowing people to hold onto their stories once they are posted. "To edit or remove a highlight, just tap and hold that highlight on your profile".

Instagram hopes these two new features will encourage users to build stronger relationships with their followers and start posting more video content, which could be used for advertising. From there, you can choose any stories from your archive, select a cover for your highlight and give it a name. Users will receive a notification when Stories Archives kicks in, letting them opt out of the feature.
