Instagram Stories are a collection of photos and videos that disappear after 24 hours. Unlike regular posts on Instagram, which live on your profile forever, Stories are meant to be ephemeral, giving users a glimpse into your brand’s day-to-day. You can add text, stickers, and filters to your Stories, and even interact with your followers by responding to their questions and comments. And because Stories appear right at the top of users’ feeds, they’re impossible to miss. Instagram stories are a great way to share your life with your friends and followers. They can be a fun way to document your day, or a way to show off your creative side. In this article we have enlisted a few Instagram story hacks that you need to make your experience and story response even better.
Post multiple stories at once: Are you still uploading stories on Instagram one after another? This is time-consuming. Now you can easily upload multiple stories at once.

This way you can add up to 9 more stories making it 10 stories in total. These stories can be both image and video.
Hide hashtags and mentioned peoples usernames: Hash tags and mentioned names at times come in the way of your Instagram story. You can always hide these. To hide any hash tag or mentioned name simply type in that name on the story like you normally would. Now select the picture or video from the gallery that you wish to post and place them over the typed names this simply hides any tags from being visible.
View and download Instagram stories anonymously: You might be familiar with the fact that Instagram stories come with a list of names of people who have watched these.
