Nearly every social platform now has their own version of Stories, or has at least experimented with the idea. Despite having the same premise and function, they find their own unique place on their respective platforms. Especially on Instagram they seem to be a stark difference from the norm of highly-edited and highly-aestheticized photos and videos. As a business owner or social manager, you may find yourself asking how they got so popular, and if you should be integrating them in your social strategy.

No matter your business, the importance of stories on Facebook and Instagram can be a quick, effortless way to develop branding while also providing your target audience with crucial information to make informed following and buying decisions.
