Instagram launches ‘Stories,’ a product to take on Snapchat
Instagram on Tuesday launched a product designed to directly take on emerging rival Snapchat. The product, called “Stories” appears directly inside Instagram’s app.
Snapchat, which was recently valued at $22.7 billion in May, is increasingly seen as a viable threat by Facebook — which owns Instagram — because of how the start-up is increasingly dominating the attention of younger users.
