Yesterday there was an explosion on Social Media. All the influencers went crazy because Instagram started Instagram Stories. Say what?! In case you missed it or haven’t updated your app yet, this is a new version of Snapchat, but on Instagram. It has the same idea, sharing a video for 24 hours with your followers. But what do we think about that? I personally think this is a very, very bad try from Instagram (aka Facebook) to copy the succes of Snapchat.
First I thought: wow this is cool! Now I can follow some other bloggers that I don’t have on Snapchat! But after more than half an hour watching stories of the 900 people I follow, I was already bored. Gosh, this sucks. The people I follow on Snapchat is because I care about what they’re saying or because they have an interesting life that I want to know more about (besides what my friends are posting of course). For me, Instagram is a way of spreading editorial like photos of a picture perfect life. Not the crazy moments we share on Snapchat.
After a day trying it out, my Instagram Stories got more views, Snapchat use got less but really, I miss Snapchat. Insta story must be fun for now, but I don’t have the time nor the mood to watch the videos of 900 different people. So after some extra updates there I will definitely stay loyal to Snapchat (and if it wasn’t about the stories it would be because of the filters). Hopefully my favorite influencer will think the same, but I also can’t wait to read what you think about this new hype. Is it better than Snapchat, or do you agree with me? Tell me in the comments guys!
I was wearing:
Bag: Maison Valentino
Keychain: Oh! By Kopenhagen Fur
Nails: Caption Romance vs. Reality
wat een super leuke outfit! ik weet niet zo goed wat ik van die instagram storie vind ergens vind ik het leuk maar ergens ook weer niet ..
I didn’t know this new for Instagram, I don’t like it! But I like your outfit very much! 🙂
Beautiful outfit babe!!! I had exactly the same!! At first I was super excited, but later on I was just like, hmm…… Xx Susanne – http://bagatyou.com
You’re looking absolutely stunning in this gorgeous outfit! Your top is perfect and you’re totally rocking these culottes too. 🙂
I’m totally an Instagram girl and I never got into Snapchat, so I don’t think that I’ll get into Instagram stories either because I LOVE photographs over short videos. YouTube is my favourite way to check out video materials.
I’m with you- Insta stories are kinda fun, but if there’s A LOT of them, they can get tedious. And I find Snap to be a blasssst, so don’t think I’ll give it up anytime soon!
Love your blouse here, lady!
Le Stylo Rouge
Love the outfit <3
First I skipped through all the text, because I was just so interested in your look. I LOVE it! Love the color palette, it looks absolutely amazing!
I’ve not seen/tried the Instagram Stories feature yet, guess my phone or the app itself is lagging behind a bit.. I think the stories feature could be perfect for someone like me, who wants to keep at least one social channel completely personal but also wants to share little daily life glimpses to the followers…? I don’t know, I’ve been thinking about making my Snapchat public for a little while already and I guess I’d still prefer that over the Instagram version xx Oh, and I ADORE your top! ♥︎
love your outfit sooo much 🙂 You look beautiful
I’ve till date not used snapchat and when I decided to use it, I got to know that instagram has now come up wid a instastories. Now I am confused which one to try…
bytheway, You look very beautiful hun….xoxo, Neha
Love the red lips with this look! I prefer Snapchat but I do like that I can watch some people post stuff who don’t have snapchat.
