Now retailers can use Instagram Stories as an ecommerce platform

Well, if you are the one who disliked this feature, we have some good news for you.

What is the most extreme step you have taken when some Snapchat user has taken a screenshot of you Story?

Earlier this year Instagram implemented a new feature that notified people when you screenshot their Story. Well, the feature wasn't rolled out to all the users as it was being tested with a small number of users. Several months after Instagram introduced a feature to notify users anytime someone has screengrabbed their Story, the Facebook subsidiary has revealed the functionality is no longer in effect. It is unusual how a mega brand like Instagram did not officially announce this feature when it came out, and how it remained away from the spotlight.

Still, online responses to the idea were generally negative.

The feature was met with backlash as users had grown used to taking screenshots of Story posts for whatever it is they meant to do with them.

This was a feature that was inspired from Instagram-rival Snapchat, which famously tells users if someone has taken a screenshot of their content. Due to the absence of this feature, the platform clearly stands vulnerable without any visible protection to stories from the troublemakers.

We have also found that there are plenty of tricks to avoid getting caught by Instagram, like turning the airplane-mode "OFF" while taking a screenshot of a story.

After a trial period of a few months, Instagram has chose to halt the introduction of screenshot notifications. Just click that to see more details about the featured product, including a link where you can buy it.
