Instagram Stories is taking on Snapchat

Recently Instagram launched a new feature called Stories that strongly resembles Snapchat's section of the same name. You can add a photo or video to your story just by tapping the "+"  button in the top left hand corner of the app and choose to take a photo or 10 second video. You can draw on the picture or video by taping the pen tool in the top right hand corner, and add different filters by swiping left. You can also type directly onto the photo or video then resize the text by zooming in and rotating it.  If you tap "My Story" on the homepage and swipe up, it will show you who has watched each photo and video.
