Instagram to launch a huge redesign for Stories-1

San Francisco: Facebook-owned Instagram is preparing to launch a huge redesign that would make it easier to watch favorite Stories in one place.

Julian Gamboa, Marketing and Social Media Manager at Adweek, recently posted screenshots of the new layout to Twitter and wrote: "You have heard of two rows of Instagram Stories...Now prepare to SEE ALL STORIES.

The screenshots indicate that the main feed may soon include two rows of Stories at the top of the screen.

Additionally, there will be a new ‘See All Stories' bar at the top of the screen, and once tapped, a user will be taken to a new tab in which all friends' stories are laid out in a grid.

Instagram is also working on a new feature called video note for its standalone messaging app Threads that helps users stay connected to close or smaller circle of friends.

The new feature will automatically turn audio in videos to live captions. The video note feature would also help Threads users understand what their friends actually mean to say, and respond clearly.

Advertising on Instagram is a way to move your business forward. Instagram is a component of the Facebook brand, which means advertising on the platform is not much different than doing so on Facebook. Yet, it is a different platform with a different user base. What’s more, it’s not always easy to know the actual cost to advertise on Instagram.

To determine if this is a platform you should be used for advertising, you must take a holistic view of your branding and advertising needs. Like many other social media platforms, there’s no set price associated with advertising. You choose to bid on ad placement. The brand with the highest bid will have their ad placed by the site. This is a very simplistic view of the process.
