The Instagram Story feature had been launched a long time ago. You must be aware of it, if you are an Instagram user. The Story feature allows you to post photos, video clips, Boomerangs, GIFs, but only for a day, that is, 24 hours. You can hold polls, insert the hashtags on your Stories and do many more things. With time, Instagram has replenished the settings, especially the privacy customization settings. You can now refrain people from checking your Stories or only share with those who are your close friends. Yes, we know that all Instagram Stories are not meant to be shared with all.
