Instagram Stories Pass Snapchat in Daily Users

Instagram Stories Pass Snapchat in Daily Users

Instagram Stories is now at 250 million daily active users, vastly surpassing Snapchat's rate according to Facebook's global head of sales Carolyn Everson. Facebook purchased Instagram in 2012 for $1 billion.

On Tuesday, Snap's stock dropped more than 2 percent following the news to $17.29 per share. Yesterday, Time Warner announced it was teaming up with Snap to develop shows and advertise within the app. The collaboration will result in shows made exclusively for Snapchat and is valued around $100 million.

Snapchat changed the social media world in 2013 with its creation of a "stories" feature, but the platform no longer leads the pack.

Instagram has continually been adding new features and functionality to the Stories feature, most recently announcing new stickers arriving for summer this week. The two apps have been competing for users with constant updates. Both are a mobile communication platform with which users can create and send photos and videos that are programmed to disappear to other users of the service. And when watching your own replay, the number of viewers will include everyone who saw it live and in stories.
