[News] Now You Can Add Older Pictures To Your Instagram Stories!

Hello Mi Fans,
Did you forget to add your latest story? Do you want to add your old photos to your today's story?
Instagram is turning on a feature that many users have asked for, letting users add photos and videos from their camera roll – even if they’re older than 24 hours.

The fun of the disappearing story formats, pioneered by Snapchat, was how it made users feel like they’re following along a person’s day in real time, but since so many people (particularly celebrities and influencers) were finding ways around the 24-hour limit, Instagram has decided to get rid of the time restraint altogether. In case you don’t want to completely misinform your followers, however, Instagram will still offer stickers that let you stamp the date when the photo or video was originally taken to add as context.

It’s easy to make use of this feature: When posting a new story, just swipe up to access your device’s photos, including a section of images captured in the last 24 hours, and then the rest of your Camera Roll beyond that. Tap any video or picture, edit as desired, and add to your story as you would any other image.

This probably reflects a change in the way users view Stories – it’s less about the ‘now’-ness of the media, I’d argue, and more about users wanting a way to share that’s less permanent and more casual than the main feed. Younger users were already frequently posting and then deleting posts in the main feed, according to multiple usage studies, so shifting direction to encourage Stories as the main place to do that kind of thing is a smart move.

The big question is whether this eventually creates a group of two separate primary users on the platform – those who post Stories, and those who post to the feed. Instagram’s clearly willing to follow where users lead with the app, so it’s a definite possibility.
