The description of Instagram
Use Instagram to:
•Post photos and videos you want to keep on your profile grid. Edit them with filters and creative tools, and combine multiple clips into one video.
•Share multiple photos and videos (as many as you want!) to your story. Bring them to life with text and drawing tools. They disappear after 24 hours and won't appear on your profile grid or in feed.
•Watch stories from the people you follow in a bar at the top of your feed. View them at your own pace.
•Discover photos and videos you might like and follow new accounts in the Explore tab.
•Send private messages, photos, videos and posts from your feed directly to friends with Instagram Direct.
•Instantly share your posts to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and other social networks.
Introducing two more ways to share freely and in the moment.
• Disappearing Photos and Videos in Instagram Direct: Send disappearing photos and videos to friends and groups. Swipe right into the camera to capture, then tap the arrow to send it privately. These updates are available starting today.
• Live stories (coming soon!): Go live to connect with your friends and followers right now. When you're done, your live story disappears. Live stories will be rolling out in the coming weeks.
