So I guess everyone is doing it now?
Most of you know that I am a firm believer and a heavy user of Snapchat, however I do post stories on both instagram and Snapchat.
I just got these leaked pictures of WHATSAPP STORIES, not sure they are official though, but they seem like a test dummy for a new update.
I personally do not have all my snapchat friends on Instagram – and definitely not on whatsapp, so I do not see this whatsapp update as threatening to my “stories activity”.
Many people I know though, shifted from Snapchat to Instagram stories since it made more sense – they have both their friends and the main pages they follow on Instagram; they wouldn’t be missing on anything (no major FOMOs).
Whatsapp stories would make more sense for those who use Snapchat to check their friends updates; those who are more private.
Probably Whatsapp Stories would target:
- Private Instagram users who refrain from uploading insta stories because of the two people they don’t know that they accepted last Monday
- 30 and above who do not really care about celebrities or follow major news and celebrity/fashion/influencers pages
- People who never used Snapchat or instagram stories and never really got it “because it’s too complicated”
- Jealous boyfriends and girlfriends who already change their whatsapp pictures into black and their status into “pimping” and “single” when they’re on a fight
I think it will be less common among the youngsters since their parents and aunts have their whatsapp contacts – and no kid wants his grandma to know he is having fries for lunch at Burger King instead of her Kebbeh.
Thank you Ahmad Ki for the leak!
