Stories are probably the best feature ever introduced to Instagram. For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, stories are those short videos and pictures that stay up for 24 hours before they’re deleted.
There are three big reasons why I love stories:
- I try to keep my Instagram account “clean” of pics of what I ate or blurry videos. I solely use it to showcase the better, high quality pictures I take. Stories allow me to post content that isn’t really worthy of a picture or a video share, but still something I want to promote.
- Stories are optional. I can post twenty stories a day, and nobody has to go through them in their feed. On some social media accounts (especially Facebook), I’ve even had to unfollow certain people who constantly spam meaningless, low quality posts that end up filling my feed.
- I love the concept of having something up for only 24 hours. I have no pressure in creating content that I know will be gone the next day.
