One of Facebook’s best products-Instagram Stories has 500 million users who are making Stories on a daily basis. The number of users of Instagram is almost double than the entire daily active user base of all of Snapchat, which initially introduced the Stories format. Now, Instagram is testing a way to make the Stories experience more pleasant. It seems the company is making the feature more interesting. Get ready to enjoy Full-Screen Stories.
Instagram users will get to see more stories at once, both on the home screen and in a new Stories-only experience. (Instagram stories are posts which self disappear in 24 hours when any user upload it). The company launched it in 2016.
