When Instagram stories landed in August, it was an instant hit. Every day, I load up Instagram to see stories being constantly updated with new stuff. Now, Instagram are expanding the capability of Stories by offering live streaming. Live streaming is a feature that’s proven to be wildly popular for Facebook, and is sure to be a big attraction to Instagram users.
When somebody you follow starts a “live story”, you’ll see “Live” written under their profile photo in the stories bar. During the broadcast you can comment and like as much as you want. You can also check out new live stories through Explore.
