Instagram adds direct share for Instagram Stories

Instagram adds direct share for Instagram Stories

Prepare to see more Instagram stories turning up as ads on your Facebook feed. Check it out in Instagram from today. With this, you will be able to share your liked stories with an instant new way.

The update is rolling out globally over the next few weeks so you might not have it right away. Instagram's also revealed that over 50 percent of its business users regularly create Stories, even though there's previously been no direct way to monetise them. Select this and then scroll down to "allow sharing".

This is quite an interesting feature and it will work like Snapchat.

Oak Ridge Investments LLC Increases Position in Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ALXN)
Quantbot Technologies LP's holdings in Alexion Pharmaceuticals were worth $1,118,000 as of its most recent filing with the SEC. The biopharmaceutical company reported $1.56 EPS for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $1.08 by $0.48.


What that means is that every once in awhile, you might see an ad in Stories that uses the same camera filters and tags that you use. If your profile is public, anyone can view or share your stories. In your Stories Settings, you will find a feature to turn off this option. Select this icon and then you should see the users you share with fairly frequently. So, having a private account will be more beneficial for you if you want to keep things private and limited to your friends and other known people only.

"With the ability to utilize Facebook's fast-loading full screen Canvas format in Instagram Stories, marketers are able to use the creative versatility of Canvas to tell compelling brand and product stories", Instagram writes in a blog post.

Instagram is announcing several new features for advertisers on Tuesday, September 12. So, the integration between Facebook and Instagram will become more easier than ever. The new features for users and brands are available from today in Instagram for iOS and Android.

That should give him a pass from fans - at least he tried - but then I look at the situation at left-full and it doesn't add up. Liverpool's attempt to muster an instant riposte saw Can strike a free-kick from inside the "D" the wrong side of the upright.


If you don't like the thought of someone sharing your Instagram Story, you can opt to not allow sharing via Direct. To check first, make sure your app is up to date and you're using the latest version of the app.

How do you share Instagram Stories in a direct message? "From stories you follow on surfing to stories about your best friend's cat, now you have more ways to share the stories you love", said Instagram.

Basically, Instagram stories are made of Images or Videos, just select the button given at the bottom of the story at the right corner. If you don't see the user you want to share the story with in the list provided you can also search their user name in the search bar. To do this open the app and go to your profile page.
