Back in the days, the only way to know what’s going on in your near and dear one’s life was to stay in constant communication with them. But today things have changed and so is the way of communicating with people. As now if we want to know about someone and how are they doing. We can just simply check them on social networking sites. It is so much easy and convenient at the same time. Also, there are a massive number of social networking sites which will never make you run out of options. Be it their popular story feature or classic posting pictures option. Whichever way, it is still a great deal to watch your friends and family anytime you want.
Originally, the social media which actually started the trend of sharing stories was Snapchat. It gave fun and cool filters to its users which made a drastic growth in young demographic. Followed by Snapchat was another famous social networking site that added the story feature for its users was Instagram. You can simply add any story on your Instagram account which will be visible to your followers for 24 hours. And the best part is that it won’t be added to your main profile so you don’t need to worry what to post on your story. Just add your daily activities and share your special moments with friends and family. But you can still add your stories in highlights which will make them visible on your profile till the date you wish.
And as the ‘story feature’ is a privilege for Instagram users it turns out to be waste when you can’t actually save someone’s else story in your gallery. Because honestly, we all have some friends who just won’t send the pictures you are looking good in and will still post it on their story. No matter how much you beg you just feel helpless when you see yourself in someone’s else story but not in your own. Even if we exclude friends there are many other reasons when you feel to save someone else story in your roll. Be it some motivational quote, a beauty look that you are always looking for, some cool or funny videos, or any other thing you like. You still can’t save them as there is no such option affiliated by Instagram.
