Instagram stories crosses 200 million users

Instagram stories crosses 200 million users

Facebook-owned Instagram has claimed that it has taken the lead from Snapchat as it has used the Instagram Stories by over 200 million times, reported CNNMoney.

Snap (SNAP), the parent company of Snapchat reported that it has 161 million daily active users ahead of its IPO last month.

The 200 million figure represents how many people watch stories on Instagram every day, and not how many users actually post stories.

Instagram launched the story feature last August and reached 150 million daily users in January.

The social media giant also introduced a nearly identical stories feature on Facebook in late March.

Starting Thursday, Instagram users can turn a picture of themselves into a sticker and share it with friends, with the help of its new selfie stickers.

Instagram will soon add geofilters to Chicago, London, Madrid and Tokyo, which are designed by local artists.

Currently, geofilters are available in New York City, Jakarta and Sao Paulo.
