Create Custom Story on Snapchat

With millions of users, Snapchat is one of the most popular multimedia instant messaging services. The fact that the pictures and messages shared on this platform disappear after a specific time period makes it popular amongst the users, 90% of who are aged between 13 and 24. One of the features that users on Snapchat widely use is to share Custom and Private Stories with all their friends or a specific group, as desired. If you wish to learn more about this feature, we have a detailed guide that will help you create a custom Story on Snapchat and share it with your friends.

What is the Difference between Private Story and Custom Story?

Stories are popular with users on Snapchat. They can upload images and videos they wish to share with your contacts, allowing them to glimpse your daily activities, celebration, or any events you have attended. They are available for 24 hours, post which they disappear. The difference between a Custom Story and a Private Story is that the latter restricts friends from adding or commenting on your post.

The platform allows users to restrict the people who can view their story by custom creating a group. This allows the user to have total control of their content and share it only with those they want. For instance, if you have 100 people on your friend list but want just 5 specific people to view your story, you can do so using this feature. Not only can you choose who to share your story with, but you can also select if they can add to your stories or not. Snapchat is available for both iOS and Android users, and this feature can allow one to post a story for their contacts.

Steps to Create a Custom Story on Snapchat

Open your Snapchat. If required login into your account with your credentials

Tap on Open Your Profile and then tap on your Profile icon

Just beside the Stories option, you will find ‘+New Story’ option in a small box

Tap on this +New Story option

You will be provided with two options – Custom Story and Private Story

Here, you must select Custom Story – in a Custom Story, post all your friends or contacts and view your story and allow them to add to your story. For instance, they can add some of their own snaps or messages related to the story you posted.

Next, you are prompted with the option to select the friends who can see and post on your story

Once you have selected the friends who can see and post on your story, tap on Create Story

You will be prompted to give a name to your story – once you have written down your desired name, tap on Done. Let’s say you name the story – 123
