Do you want to put your favorite Insta Stories under your Instagram bio?
This new feature is called an Insta Story “Highlight”. You can pick whatever photos and videos you want to share in one Highlight.
- A Highlight = a collection of Insta Stories you’ve already posted
- A Highlight can have up to 100 photos and videos in it
- You can add as many Highlights under your bio as you want
- They last forever until you decide to remove them
- You can delete a Highlight from your Instagram page whenever you want
- You can add and remove stories from a Highlight whenever you want
