Instagram launches Instagram Stories
Instagram has introduced Instagram Stories; a new feature that allows people to create photo and video montages which disappear after just 24 hours. Content can also be customised with drawings, text and emojis. Users will see stories from people they follow in the bar at the top of their feed, and can tap to move forwards or back and even swipe to jump to another story. However, unlike regular Instagram posts, they can only react to a story through a private message on Instagram Direct.
This all sounds very familiar, right? #InstagramStories has been trending on Twitter since yesterday’s launch, with many people noting how similar the new feature is to Snapchat Stories. Snapchat is highly regarded for its spontaneous and temporary nature, proving to be particularly popular with 18-24-year-olds.
It will be interesting to see if Instagram can capture the same user behaviour that Snapchat enjoys, and what will happen next for both platforms.

Touchpoint is effective, successful and great to work with. We were looking to increase awareness surrounding our Computer Science course; Touchpoint responded promptly and followed up with a plan of action. The campaign was a wonderful success, with a 70% increase in applications. We will continue to develop our relationship with them.
Touchpoint was appointed to run our summer recruitment marketing campaign. They demonstrated a robust and insightful understanding of our target market and provided innovative and creative approaches to reaching audiences successfully. With their flexible, reactive attitude and personable, professional customer service, they have proven to be a pleasure to work with.
I’ve worked with Touchpoint Digital for two years and they have always been a great source of knowledge and advice in planning and running effective digital communications campaigns. Professional (yet friendly) and always happy to help. They know their stuff too - as our campaign measurements prove.
Having worked for many years, over many campaigns, with Touchpoint Digital, I have no hesitation in recommending them to colleagues in the HE sector. The team is a pleasure to deal with – extremely skilled, helpful and flexible in their approach. Their account management is excellent. I have found them to be accommodating and helpful even after the end of a contract, which is something I have greatly appreciated. Touchpoint Digital are proactive in bringing new ideas, trends and innovations to the attention of clients and their knowledge of digital marketing in HE are second to none.
I have worked with Touchpoint Digital for almost 3 years supporting SAE Institute on a number of digital and print campaigns. The team are professional, responsive and always on top of the latest trends/tech to enhance our marketing campaigns.
