Snapchat's video views have grown to 10 billion a day, up from 8 billion in February, according to the company. "People's behavior is changing so that photos are being used as speech instead of a repository for memories," SunTrust Robinson Humphrey's Robert Peck said.
Instagram’s highly curated feed often feels like a museum full of people’s best work. Now, the company is adding a new section that’s more akin to a pop-up gallery show: messier, more chaotic, and with a see-it-now-or-miss-it-forever quality to it. This new section, called Stories, will play host to photos and video that don’t live in your main feed and, crucially, vanish after 24 hours.
