    As a once avid user of Snapchat, I have recently converted to Instagram’s story feature. Don’t get me wrong, I am still about snapping and I really enjoy the various filters but there are a lot of benefits of using insta over it. My first case being that the amount of people that my stories reach on my Instagram greatly outnumber the amount I get on Snapchat. If I were to post a video of myself on Snapchat, I would reach around a hundred individuals while the same video would be viewed tripled that number. Secondly, there are a greater option of filters available on Instagram. If a cute photo comes out a little blurry or the exposure is too bright, I can adjust them using the right filter fit for the post. Finally my most favorite part of Instagram stories: boomerangs. I don’t know why I love this feature so much but it is the perfect in-between for a photo and a video. Boomerangs add a uniqueness to the same old pictures we scroll through. Saying all of this, since Instagram stories have acquired so much attention for the short duration of time they have existed, I do believe that Snapchat can make a comeback and continue to reach more and more new active users.
