Reminder: What is an Instagram Story?

First and foremost, Instagram Stories, inspired by the social network Snapchat’s Stories, are 15-second videos that are present for 24 hours on a person’s account. After this time has passed, the Stories fades away and/or can be made into a « Featured Story»by the account user.

Featured Stories are used to feed the account and to keep some Stories useful for a professional account.

Example: Story on the front page of the products put on sale by the brand, of the various updated promo codes…
