On Monday, Instagram launched an all-new ‘Add Yours’ sticker in stories, that lets users respond to other users’ Stories with their own following a prompt or a certain topic.
In a Tweet announcing the feature, Instagram wrote, “Add Yours = a sticker that creates public threads in Stories 🤝 With custom prompts and public responses, you can share the sticker and see who responds to it in their own Stories.” The global launch comes as Instagram initially tested the feature in Indonesia and Japan last month. “With custom prompts and public responses, you can share the sticker and see who responds to it in their own Stories,” the social media giant said in a tweet.
The interactive sticker can be used to create a content chain where each user adds their own Story. Once you click on the sticker in someone’s Story, you’ll be able to see everyone who has taken part in the thread and view their Stories.
You can now access the new feature by selecting the sticker tool from the top navigation bar when you capture or upload content to your Story. From there, you can select the “Add Yours” sticker to start a public thread. Alternatively, you can respond to an “Add Yours” sticker by clicking on it and adding your own Story to take part in a chain.
