Instagram stories is a 24-hour rotating story where each one of your posts gets delete at the end of 24 hours.

You can post unlimited photos or 10-second videos and upload to your story and anyone can view your story but each posts will disappear when they hit the 24-hour mark.

Instagram Stories is similar to Snapchat.
