The sticky heat was starting to subside last week in New York, as you probably saw from my Snapchat. Speaking of Snapchat, I recently found out I have been nominated for a Bloglovin’ award for best Snapchat and it would mean the world if you voted by clicking here. In other news, as I’m sure everyone heard, Instagram released a new feature on their app last week. What do you guys think of Instagram stories?
I was interviewed twice while I was in New York, once for Amazon’s show “Style Code Live” and another by Fohr Card’s “A Drink with James” both of which asked me about Snapchat vs. Instagram stories. I am still allowing the new feature on Instagram to sink in before I make a judgement as to how and if I would potentially integrate it into my content. There is something very special and personal about Snapchat that I don’t think Instagram can fully replicate with “Stories”. One problem is over exposure, I don’t necessarily want to see the Stories from all 350 people who I follow on Instagram. However, I watch the stories of the 35 people I follow on Snapchat religiously.
What are your thoughts?
