May 24, 2017
Category: Social Media, News

IG announced 2 new ways to discover the world around you on Explore: Location Stories & Hashtag Stories. Now you can see what’s happening around you and find stories related to your interests.

Location Stories & Hashtag Stories

📍Location Stories: You’ll see a new story ring at the top of Explore filled with stories happening near you. You can also search for any location around the world, and you’ll see a story ring for that place at the top of the location page.

#️⃣ Hashtag Stories: When you search for a hashtag, you may see a story ring at the top of the page filled with stories using that hashtag.

Add a location sticker or hashtag to your story and you may be included in the larger story. If you want to use a location or hashtag sticker but don’t want your story to appear on Explore, tap the X on your stories viewer list.

From discovering new parts of your hometown to jogging alongside the #fromwhereirun community, location and hashtag stories help you share these experiences as they unfold. #Repost @instagramforbusiness
