Using Facebook and Instagram Stories

Facebook and Instagram Stories is a feature that allows users to post photos or videos to their account, that vanish after 24 hours. Stories are a great opportunity to share news and information, behind the scenes content and to give your brand personality.

Viewing Stories

On both Facebook and Instagram, you will see the stories feed at the top of the homepage. On Facebook you can see a preview of the story, and on Instagram you will see the profile image of someone you follower.
