Say Goodbye to Auto-Advancing Snapchat Stories

A new snapchat update? You know I had to write a blog post to keep you all in the loop! You can say goodbye to auto-advancing/playing stories and say hello to story playlists! 

The new update released on Oct. 11, 2016 allows users to watch stories one at a time, or play them in any order you wish.  Here's how you can use the new update.

 

Now you can watch all of your favorite friends on Snapchat one after another! If we're not friends on Snapchat yet, what are you waiting for?! Add me: sophieofkors

 

Enjoy the new update and happy snapping!

You Can Now Save Drafts on Instagram — Step by Step Instructions

We’ve all been through it. We get the *perfect* edits on our Instagram picture but decided to wait and post it later. Instead of having to re-edit the photo again once we’re ready to post, we can now save the edits as a draft! Ah convenience, something we all love.

HOW TO USE THIS NEW FEATURE:

  1. Edit your photo. You can even stop mid-post and finish the edits later.
  2. Press the back button/arrow

3. Choose “Save Draft” and it’ll appear in your draft library like so.

 

4. Your drafts will appear in your Instagram drafts library (see below). Choose the photo to open it back up again!

 

HAPPY INSTAGRAMMING!

Tag me, @SophieOfKors so I can see your posts!
