Instagram Stories has become a huge hit for the social networking app. Instagram labels stories as “share all your memories of each day, not just the ones you want to keep on your profile”.
Stories will let you upload images and videos in a slide format and you can add unlimited photos and videos. The stories will be available for 24 hours only and after that, all the images and videos on stories will be disappeared.
