Instagram Launches Private Stories Archive


Instagram will now allow you to automatically save your “Stories” in an archive that only you can see. Casey Newton, explains at The Verge:

Instagram is rolling out a private archive of the ephemeral stories you have posted in the app. Starting today, Instagram will begin to add your expired stories to the archive feature, which until now has been used only to house photos and videos you no longer want to display on your public profile. The stories archive, which you will be able to opt out of, is being introduced globally on Android and iOS.

I like this so I don’t have keep my old stories on my phone, which I was doing because they do tell a nice little, um, story about whatever I was doing that day. Usually involving beer and the cats. Nice update.
