How do you think the addition of Instagram Stories will affect Snapchat?
I definitely think Instagram Stories will bit a chunk out of Snapchat’s user base. There are lots of people who already have large followings on Instagram so those people will probably migrate there if they were on Snapchat.
However, Snapchat has been one of the most innovative social media platforms to date. They continue to bring new, fresh ideas to the table. Not sure if Instagram will keep up or if they will just copy more of Snapchat;’s ideas??
Ultimately though, the market will decide!
Maybe a new platform will come along and eat up Snapchat and Instagram, who knows?
Really handy stuff here Dan. As you know I’ve just started something new involving snapchat and this has given me a good overview of what I should be thinking about. Didn’t know about the story analytics either.
Thanks for the feedback Carl , really pleased this post has helped! Any other questions you have just ask. 🙂
I will do, I’ll add you too!
