Instagram updating profiles with new Stories features, Archive and Highlights

Introducing Stories Highlights and Stories Archive – Instagram

Though we did have the option to pick and choose which stories to download (and still do), this will make it easier and not something that you have to moderate yourself.

Highlights will show up right underneath your bio and they'll stay there until you remove them.

Called Stories Highlights, these collections of past Stories can be cobbled together from the Stories posts that Instagram will now automatically save to an account's private in-app archive of posts it has published; accounts can disable this auto-archiving feature. To create a highlight, tap the "New" circle at the far left.

What helps Stories Highlights become a usable feature is Stories Archive. With Stories Archive enabled, your Stories won't disappear after 24-hours anymore.

Just tap any story in the archive to watch it - or, add it to your story again, share it as a post, or add it to a highlight. A long tap on any individual Highlights circle allows you to edit or remove it.

Trump and RNC Back Roy Moore Senate Bid Despite Sex Abuse Accusations
While the RNC is working with Moore, the NRSC will continue to stay out of the Senate race, according to CNN host Jake Tapper. In that same vein, longtime Alabama Senator Richard Shelby said Trump's endorsement didn't surprise him.

Instagram has announced two new tools that allow users to revisit their most cherished Instagram Stories.

From there, you can re-live your favourite stories (#memories).

Currently, when users want to share each someone's post, they have to either save the image and post it on via their own Instagram account, or use apps designed for this objective, such as Regram. This feature lets users share selected stories from the Archive and lets the user create groups. The new features will be available in version 25 of Instagram for iOS and Android.

Whereas before you had to manually save your Stories so you won't lose them after 24 hours, now you can just let Instagram do all the work. Remember, archived posts are private to a user, and they won't be visible to their friends, followers on Instagram.

Of course, if you don't want to save those moments, you can opt out, according to Instagram. So like if you have some recent pictures of a event you attended, you would save them to your profile under "The wedding event".
