Instagram finally lets you save Stories so people can enjoy them forever

Once a Story is saved to your archive, which is private, you now have the ability to publicly share it in a more permanent way with Instagram's new "Story Highlights". "And yet the profile is one of the top destinations on Instagram - it's a powerful space for self-expression and feeling closer to others".

The new Instagram alerts come after US Forest Service officials in Lake Tahoe warned park-goers in 2014 against taking selifes with wild bears, because some were putting their lives in danger just to get an Instagram-worthy snap. To create one, open up a story in the archive and tap the ellipsis (.) button to get started.

"Once you're done, your highlight will appear as a circle on your profile that plays as a stand-alone story when someone taps it", Instagram explained.

Tap on any story in your archive to watch it. You scroll through them horizontally, as with stories in the feed. That meant it could feel like you were spamming friends if you wanted to share niche content, deterring content creation.

Story Highlights lets you show all the sides of your personality, and you can make highlights out of anything you've shared to your story in the past.

If you want to edit one of your Instagram Story Highlights, tap "Edit Highlight". Rather than forcing ephemerality, Instagram is making it optional to appeal to a wider audience.

Moving forward, your stories will automatically save to your archive when they expire. There, you'll be able to easily switch between your posts archive and stories archive. You can't download your entire Archive at once, but instead will have to download individual clips. Simply go to your profile and tap and hold the highlight you want to alter or remove. Stories Highlights will appear on your profile, Instagram said in a blog post. They'll remain visible unless you delete them, and you can remove clips but not reorder them.

The most immediate change will be a brand new "Highlights" section on people's profile, which Instagram decided as being the biggest change to the way they look since 2013.

When the story archive is available to your account, you'll get a notification inside the app. Instagram won't begin saving your stories until that notification appears, and it offers a link to opt out if you choose.

You can add up to 100 photos or videos to a Story Highlight, and there's no limit to how many Highlights you can create.

Only you can see your archived stories, and you can choose to turn off auto-archiving at any time in your profile settings.
