Instagram is Testing a Feature that will Notify Who Recorded Your Story

The redesigned app will be rolled out to users alongside the Story sharing update

It has been noticed that people are actually satisfied with the feature on Snapchat.

Luckily, you're allowed one free screenshot before you receive a warning that, from that point on, any more stories you capture will result in the other person being notified.

Snapchat first launched the Our Stories feature in June 2014.

The company has said that the new feature will only work on Public Stories, Our Stories or Official Stories and not to stories that users only share with their friends. Users can share that content by finding it in the Discover section of the app, and then pressing and holding down on the tile to pull up the new share option.

Apparently, Snapchat users are annoyed that Stories from friends who follow them back are now disjointed through the inbox with messages threads in between. Website owners will be able to copy a piece of code from the Story player on Snapchat's site to embed the Story on their own sites.

This feature would only be for the "Official Stories", "Our Stories" and "Search Stories" and would not be including the "Publisher Stories" or "Shows" at the moment.

So what can you share? If finding your favourite Snapchat filter is the worst thing that happens to you today, it has been a good day.

Get your mind out of the gutter - I meant because it's new "Snap Map" is exposing unfaithful partners by showing exactly the location of those that you share pictures with.

According to Mashable, the stories shared on Snapchat last for about twenty-four hours' time and vanishes after the set time, however, the external links of the original stories would remain for a longer duration or time spans until the user decides to delete them or erase them.
