In Stories, Instagram introduces the ‘Add Yours’ sticker, which allows users to establish threads to which they can comment

Instagram is one of the biggest social platforms. The Facebook (Now Meta) owned application has accumulated millions of users which include celebrities and public personalities. Furthermore, the platform has become a business hub enabling entrepreneurs to promote their venture to a mass audience.

The app constantly adds new features to keep things interesting, its latest feature enables users to establish threads to which they can comment.

‘Add Yours’ Sticker

Instagram today announced the launch of a new “Add Yours” sticker in Stories that generates public threads. The new feature enables users to respond to other users’ Stories by creating their own in response to a prompt or a specific topic. Instagram first tested the function in Indonesia and Japan last month, and now it’s available worldwide.

The interactive sticker can be used to build a content chain in which each user contributes their own story. For example, a user could share an “October Photo Dump” Story and then ask their followers to add their own using the sticker. Users can add multiple photos and remove duplicates.

When users capture or upload content to their Story, they may access the new feature by selecting the sticker tool from the top navigation bar. They can then click the “Add Yours” button to create a public topic. They can also respond to a “Add Yours” sticker by clicking on it and uploading their own Story to join the chain.

Although the function is designed to encourage users to interact, it may also be used to find new individuals to follow. Users can see everyone who has participated in the thread and watch their Stories by clicking on the sticker in someone’s Story.

Summing Up

It’s worth noticing that the new sticker looks a lot like TikTok’s “duet” feature, which lets users make content with an original video. However, Instagram’s feature differs differently in that it allows you to see everyone in the content chain’s extra posts in one location, whereas TikTok currently does not surface all of the duetted films that were posted from an initial TikTok in one spot.

This new sticker comes after Instagram made its Link sticker available to all users in Stories last week, after previously restricting it to corporations and high-profile authors. As Instagram competes with other social media platforms, the global availability of these two new stickers intends to give users options to collaborate and share their interests.
