Social Media

Consider sharing it with your friends.

Snapchat invented a new concept in the social space, content expiration. Where other social media platforms try their best to preserve content, Snapchat intentionally removes it shortly after it's published. This differentiator is one of the primary factors in the platforms success.

So successful is Snapchat that it's threatening the 800lbs gorila in the room, Facebook. As parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles flock to Facebook younger audiences flock to Snapchat.

Facebook, which was the "Snapchat" in the early 2000s, has a big decision to make. Accept it's new position of being the "family social network" or try and compete with Snapchat. Given Facebook's capital, it's not surprising that they've decided to fight back.

Their first blow was Instagram stories which mimics the Snapchat stories feature. You can record short video clips which are posted for your followers to see within the next 24 hours before being removed forever. This isn't the first time Instagram was used to fight a rising social network. When Twitter released Vine, a video sharing social media site, Instagram shortly released the same capabilities.

Initial reports show that Instagram Stories have in fact hurt Snapchat's growth. Bad news for a company so close to an IPO. But the pain doesn't stop here... Facebook now has the same functionality as well.

Facebook is currently rolling out and testing Facebook stories within their mobile app. Further, they are putting stories at the very top of the application -- giving it the highest visibility of all content on the site.

As an audience of Snapchat users, how does this impact you? Have you started to use Instagram stories more often than Snapchat? Would you use Facebook stories? Why or why not?

Comments & Feedback

Student

Personally, I don't pay much attention to Facebook features when they roll out, much less use them actively. I barely use most social media, in fact. I hardly use my snap chat or Facebook anymore. The only threat to Facebook from my part is how much I use Instagram. I think the biggest probelm for Snapchat and Facebook would be Instagram because it's the one app that most people my age post to often and check just as frequently. I use the Instagram features more because I like the boomerang feature on the story. 

Student

Everyday I see more and more of my Instagram friends use stories. When it first came out as a new feature it seemed silly. My friends and I discussed that it probably wouldn't have much success. Now my opinion is different. I think Instagram is beginning to have a lot of success. However, the difference I believe is that the stories that you post on Snapchat and Instagram have different content. On Snapchat, stories that are posted are more silly capturing your night out partying or something stupid that your friend did. Instagram seems to have stories posted that are more artsy and modest. I have only used the Instagram stories a few times, but now I just leave it to Snapchat when I want to do that. To post stories to two different social media sites seems overkill to me. I think that once Facebook stories come out, I won't try to use them. That reason being I am friends with family and coworkers and do not want them seeing my everyday activity. I think that the stories feature that Snapchat has created is more for fun. It's carefree, that's why it dissapears after 24 hours. I view Facebook more as a professional social media site so I do not think this would be a feature on Facebook that I will partake in. 

Student

I think for most of my generation, this does not affect us as Snapchat users at all. I already don't think that Instagram stories have been much of a success, and definitely don't think Facebook stories will compete. I believe that people use different social media with regards to who they are friends with on the app. Most of my friends have only friends on Snapchat, friends and some family on Instagram, and almost all their friends and family on Facebook. I think Snapchat is so successful because people can post funnier, less mature things on it and will have no reprocussions because only their friends see it for a short amount of time. With Facebook, many people have employers/grandmas/friends parents added so they are much more held back when it comes to posting things. For these reasons, I don't think Facebook stories will be a success. 

Student

Just like any other college students, I use social media apps everday. I probably spend more time on Instagram than the others. I did use the Instagram stories, and I liked it. For Facebook, I just think it is trying to develop some similar traits; however, I do not think it will attract many people to just use Facebook for this new technology. Like me, I will not attentionally use Facebook to try the new updates. However, for people who likes using Facebook more than other social media, they might find this new function to be fun.

Student

I saw the new facebook feature and I didn't really think much of it. I didn't like instagram stories when they first came out because I felt that it was unnecessary, but it did become popular overall. I still have only made 1 or 2 instragram stories since it came out last summer but I do watch most of them when I am bored. I don't think I would be a huge fan of facebook stories, I would probably watch other peoples but would not be a big poster myself. 

Student

I dont think that any of the social media stories are that big of a deal. its just the current fad. I think it works very for snap chat. With the others it works but i think its just ok, its a useful short term tool.I wouldent say its anything more than that.

Student

I am a Facebook user too. But when is see the story on Facebook. It was so weired. I think Facebook is loosing their own thing. This is not familiar to people who was using facebook. I do not think this is not Facebook any more. They already lost their own thing.

Student

First of all, I don't use Snapchat or Instagram which means I've never used any of stories from them. Also, I use facebook but it is just for watching funny clips or photos for short period. I rarely upload things on facebook. Therefore, I don't think I am going to use facebook stories. But, it would be nice to see what people upload on their facebook stories.

Student

For me, I heavily rely on social media platforms,especially in Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook. I spend about two to three hours on them everyday. I did start to use Instagram stories more often than Snapchat, but I did not use Facebook stories because my friends did not use it frequently, either. 

Student

I personally dont use the stories on instagram and facebook, I like snapchat because it is a easy interface to use. Also when snapchat added the story feature, I ahd a lot of problems with the app and it kept on crashing. I havent had to many friends start to use facebook either, some friends use instagram to post stories but the overwhelming majority is on snapchat. I think snapchat is still pretty secure in its place. 

Student

I dont use facebook so I would not be using facebook stories but I do use snapchat and instagram. Although I am a heavy instagram user, I have not been using the stories feature. I like to use seperate apps so id much rather keep using snapchat for short stories I have to share. 

Student

As a snapchat user, this honestly doesn't affect me that much. I don't use Snapchat stories that much now, I only really use Snapchat to communicate with friends. I have never used Instagram stories, and I don't think that I ever will. Because of that, I don't think that I will Facebook stories either. I do think that Instagram and Facebook stories are a great way to see what people are up to, but I don't think that I will ever use them. 

Student

Instagram and Facebook's use of "stories" has not impacted me, in fact I think it's kind of dumb.  Too many social media realms try to copy each other, and if this continues, they will all be the same, and there will be no point of having multiple accounts.  I do not use Instagram stories, nor do I watch other peoples'.  I do use Snapchat stories quite frequently, and I like watching my friends' and company stories, too.

Student

As a Snapchat user, I think that Snapchat will still be able to grow. Instagram's and Facebooks stories, at least right now, are pretty one dimensional. Snapchat has a multidimensional use. You can add video filters or voice filters, and you can decide who to send a snap to. Things that i think will help Snapchat remain popular with a younger audience. I do not really use or plan to use stories on other platforms because that's not why I joined that platform. creating features to combat another platform works but it feels like Instagram and Facebook are just stealing ideas from Snapchat.

Student

The Snapchat, Instagram stories really popular among people. I think not only those three platforms have this function. Sometimes, I will use Instagram story to record something short immediately. In China, we have a platform calls Wechat. It has this function as well. Therefore, if Facebook has this function, I don't think it will affect me using other platform. If I need this function, I will use. No matter what platform it is.

Student

As an avid Snapchat user, I am not directly impacted by Instagram or Facebook stories. I never post Instagram stories and will probably never use Facebook stories. I don't use Instagram stories solely because Snapchat was the first one to do it and I want to stick to Snapchat. The fact that Facebook wants to do stories now is kind of ridiculous because if every platform continued to copy one another then it takes away the uniqeness from each platform. 

Student

I dont use Snapchat but I started using the Instagram stories when it came out. Since I dont use Snapchat, I thought it was so much fun that you can upload picture or video but it will be deleted after 24 hours. But I feel like if Facebook also makes the stories, it will be overlapping the same content on all social medias. If the Facebook stories come out, I probably wont use it because most of my friends now use instagram more than facebook and many of my friends are leaving facebook now and I dont use facebook much as i used to. 

Student

As a user of Snapchat, I think it has started a new style to allow us to communicate with people. Even if instagram has started its story application, I still used Snapchat story more often than Instagram one. I see Snapchat as a social media communication tool which I can send/update my story daily; but for Instagram, I just see it as a social media account, I wouldn't use it for daily communication. If Facebook story comes out in the future, I don't think I would use it since I already used two similar social media applications. 

Student

I noticed that Facebook just rolled out stories on their platform, and was not pleased with it when I saw it. For Facebook it seems too forced. Facebook's recent innovation of their site has been live video feeds which I think the Facebook community has responded well too, Facebook stories I don't see them being so well received though. As an instagram user I have not used the Instagram stories, and I rarely watch the ones posted either. I do watch my snap stories that my snap friends post. I would still say Snapchat is my most used social media site. 

Student

With being a frequent user of Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram I have noticed that it is more common for celebrities or people with a large following are taking advantage of Instagram stories because they are able to post stories to the public rather than where Snapchat is more private. I have not used Instagram stories nor will I use Facebook Stories because I like to keep specific content as such stories more for my close friends that I have on snapchat. I believe taking features from other apps to be more competitive actually has brought a negative response. 

Student

As a Snapchat user and a social media user, I find it to be too much of one thing on all platforms. I may be traditional, but I miss when social media sites had their singular purpose and you could do specific things on each platform. But now-a-days, they are all trying to mimic each other and they are all doing similar things now so it's not as fun as it use to be.

I still believe that Snapchat will continue to find ways to be two steps ahead of the competition. With filters, stickers, and stories by different brands and publications, the platform will always find new ways to be fresh and innovative with their app.

Also, I only ever use Instagram stories when I'm in the mood for it, to be honest. That's only been maybe 5 times since it's been a feature? My default is usually Snapchat. I also really don't like the fact that Facebook has stories now, so no, I wouldn't use them as of now. I find it all to be too repetitive and Facebook is lagging behind in terms of staying fresh. Maybe if they offered something interesting to the table, I would reconsider. 

 

Student

As an audience of snapchat, i dont really consider instagram stories as the same thing as snapchat. Snapchat allows me to only show my friends, who under my approval, my snap stories and it wouldn't automatic save our conversation. For instagram stories and facebook stories, they usually go public which means everyone can see my stories unless i set my account to private. But by doing so, I think it completely change the meaning of social account which I would never consider doing. Therefore, I think i would stick to snapchat stories.

Student

I have yet to utilize Facebook or Instagram's story capability. I think its a weak ploy to get back at Snapchat for having turned down Facebook's offer to purchase them. Facebook does have the capability of rolling this feature out to an older demographic, who may be keen to utilize another self-aggranderizing form of promotion. I have no intentions of using Facebook stories as the demographic of my friend group on Facebook is older, and I would not feel comfortable posting some of the content that typically features in my Snapchat stories on that platform. 

Student

Honestly I don't use snapchat neither instagram. That said, I don't mind facebook copying some ideas from other social media unless they are lincensed or registered. It is interesting old generation is flocking to facebook while younger generation get away from it. As far as generation gap exists facebook would remain fine. I do like the idea of having expiration date on social media. It would be nice if facebook implements such function. 

Student

Because of the fact that Snapchat was the first company to introduce this feature, I think it remains the top source for stories. Instagram stories have become more popular, but Snapchat remains at the top. I don't see Facebook stories becoming popular amoungst my generation, however, as this has become of more family oriented platform. Snapchat stories became so popular amoungst teenagers and college students because it was an avenue in which they could post videos that are deleted after 24 hours and had a relatively small chance of being seen by the adults in their life, who most likely don't use Snapchat. 

Student

Personally, there is no one in the world I care enough about (barring some family) to want to know what they're doing 24/7. It's for that reason that I would never find myself using Instagram's or Facebook's "Snapchat-like" services. I do however think it's smart that they're replicating Snapchat'd model as it's a popular app that suffers from lack of audience. With Facebook's large user pool they could have the chance to become a powered up Snapchat.

Student

Personally, the development of Facebook and Instagram stories have not really impacted me in any way. The only thing I would say is that the development of both Instagram and Facebook have allowed people to share more/different content with their followers. From an outside viewer perspective, it appears that many people have at least tried using Instragram story, but are hesitant to try Facebook story. However, despite using Instragram story, the frequency of how much they are posting on Instagram is much less than on Snapchat. If I had to give a guess as to why, it would be that once people become accustomed to using a site in one way, they tend to want to stay stuck in their ways and not change, even if other options are available. Seeing as I am one of these, I haven't started to use Instagram stories more often that Snapchat. I have tried using Instagram stories and I do find them enjoyable, however I find that myself as well as other post much more frequently on Snapchat. I may or may not use Facebook stories because even though I feel that they are probably enjoyable/fun to use, the followers I have on Facebook aren't the same followers I have on Instagram and Snapchat. Most of my Facebook followers are family members (young and old) and close as well as distant friendst as opposed to Snapchat and Instagram where my followers are younger family members as well as close friends. This makes the content that I'm posting on Instagram and Snapchat much different than the content I post on Facebook, so I would be hesitant to make the transition to using Facebook stories mainly for this reason.

Student

I love snapchat and it is actually one of my favorite social media apps. I personally have not adapted to instagram stories. Since it has come out, I have only posted two things on my instagram story. It actaully took me a while to figure out how to put multiple pictures on my instagram story, so that annoyed me. I do not see myself using Facebook stories. I already use snapchat to post stories, so I don't see the point of using Facebook stories. So, overall these new changes havent impacted me. I think its great that Facebook is trying to stay in the game, however I think they are late to this idea. They need to come up with something new. 

Student

Personally, I have not adapted the Instagram story feature as much as Snapchat. I still prefer Snapchat. I think that Instagram is way more public than Snapchat. More people follow me and can seemy Instagram conetent than what I put on Snapchat. Not that every single person on my Snapchat is my best friend, but Instagram can be trolled by future employers, parents and strangers. I think that I have more fun with Snapchat and like how it is a little more private than the Instagram stories. Also, you can only add stories to Instagram but with Snapchat you can personalize snaps to certain people. I do use the Instagram stories occassionally, but only when I am doing/visiting somewhere intereesting or exciting. I didn't even know that Facebook was offering this feature as well. I do however like Facebook's live video feature. I think that is very progressive and a fun way to to add to the social media platform. 

Student

I realized the addition of this feature to Facebook and Instagram immediately. I can't honestly say if it's better than Snapchat but I'm so rooted in Snapchat that it doesn't really matter. I have all of my friends on Snapchat with group chats associated to them. I remember trying to get my friend groups to switch to Facebook messenger instead of a texting group and that was hard enough. Snapchat is always finding ways to be more attractive while the other platforms are just starting up. I don't see myself leaving the beloved ghost logo'd app anytime soon.

Student

At the beginning, I use Snapchat to share my stories and Instagram for post the pictures that I like. After Instagram have stories, I deleted Snapchat from my cell phone, because I don’t need two apps that have same functions. Compare with Snapchat, Instagram has more function than Snapchat, also most of my friends use Instagram, they will send me Instagram message instead of Snapchat stories. I don’t use Facebook very often and I will continue to use Instagram.

Student

i don't think this will be impact me, because only and creative new stuff can get people attendance. I usually like use Instagram stories, I can share my happy moment immediately, so my friends can comment. It is really cool. I would to use Facebook stories, it is similar with Instagram stories, nothing creative and cool idea in this time. If Facebook can using some cool way you can show your stories on the social media, I will be use it. 

Student

Initially, it took me a while to even get into Snapchat. I thought posting stories was a visual form of Twitter back when high schoolers used it to be overly discriptive about what was going on in their lives, and frankly I didn't care. I remember when Snapchat became popular in my High School, and It wasn't until college that I actually started using the stories part of the app. Now, I use them multiple times a week and keep up to date with friends and family via Snapchat stories. Instagram stories have gained popularity faster than Snapchat stories, which I would contribute to us already being used to this type of platform, so we adopted it more quickly than before. However, I don't think the same thing applies for Facebook stories. Instagram and Snapchat are both platforms that we connect almost strictly with our friends. Facebook has our immediate and extended family on it, and we are much more cautious as to what we put out there if we know our family could potentially see it. Therefore, I do not think it will gain as much traction as its predecessors, and as of now I do not plan on engaging with friends via Facebook stories.

Student

I am a user of all of the apps talked about above but rarely if ever post any stories. The only app I have used is Snapchat stories once or twice. Most of the content that I used on those apps are intended for particular people and that is it. When it came to Instagram starting a story feature, I was much more accepting then I am with Facebook stories. I believe this is because stories on both Snapchat and Instagram have a direct connection to what the apps original purpose was intended for, pictures. Where Facebook wants to use that feature as just a popularity tool. Also with Facebook taking on another feature called Facebook TV, there is just too much copycatting going on and Facebook needs to spend time elsewhere for fresh ideas the public has not seen.

Student

I am user of all three apps, (Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram) and I've really used them for their original purpose and haven't really branched out. Facebook, I use mostly as a family networking site. I keep track of old friends and occassionally share pictures on it. Snapchat, I use for it's original purpose and that is dissappearing photos and stories. Instagram I use as a photo sharing app. I don't really like that they've tried to cross over into eachother's domains because the features they are rolling out aren't as good as their main competitors and it just becomes cluttered. I will continue to use mainly use the apps for their original purpose.

To be completely honest, I thought it was incredibly cliché when Instagram introduced its "stories" feature. I thought, "This is way too similar to Snapchat...there is no way this will catch on!" But, I think it is safe to say that I was wrong, at least to an extent. Though not as popular as Snapchat stories, (not nearly as many of my Instagram friends post stories as my Snapchat friends do) I have found that quite a few of my friends use the story feature on Instagram and use some of the unique features it offers that Snapchat does not. I actually posted my first Instagram story today, just to try it out, and I found that I like the writing tools much more than the writing tool offered on Snapchat. I also found that I liked the option of a "boomerang," or a short, repeating video that Snapchat does not have. I remain loyal, however, to the original Snapchat when it comes to posting quick content that will be deleted in 24 hours and Instagram remains my No. 1 app for posting photos. I think that, like me, even though some people use Instagram stories, it isn't in place of Snapchat, just in addition to Snapchat. Similarly, if Facebook tried to create a story feature, I think at most people would use it in addition to the other two apps, if at all. I personally do not have the dedication to post stories to three apps every day. If I am going to post a story, I am most likely to use the app dedicated to that: Snapchat. If I am going to post a photo that will be on the internet until I delete it, I will use Instagram. If I am going to connect with family or other groups, I am going to use Facebook. Simple as that.

I use the Snapchat app daily, sending snaps to friends and posting stories of my own.  Learning about Instagram using the same concept and allowing users to post stories was interesting.  I decided to try it out and it was not as bad as I expected.  As a Snapchat user, the only impact this had on me was some people deciding to use Facebook and Instagram stories and not being able to see them.  I will most likely not use Facebook story because I have been using Snapchat for so long I do not feel the need to use both.  If for some reason people start to veer away from Snapchat and start using Facebook more, maybe I will give it a shot.

Student

I am a heavy user of social media platforms such as Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook. When it comes to posting "stories" for me, Snapchat would be the platform I would use because that is what the platform was meant for. I have posted a story on Instagram before and have seen an increasing amount of the people I follow do the same, but not nearly as much as Snapchat. Personally, I will not be using Facebook to post stories and I do not think it will be successful. I use Snapchat and Instagram to connect with people my age, not family like Facebook. I find it very interesting that Instagram's story feature has hurt Snapchat's growth.

Student

Actually, I like using snapchat to share what I am doing at that momment, because people only can see your story in 24hrs. After 24 hours it will disappear. For the facebook story, I don't think I will use the facebook stories becasue I don't like using facebook and I only have 80 friends on the facebook. 

Student

I do not plan on posting any Facebook stories because they are only temporary and my family does not go on Facebook everyday. I usually post on Facebook to let my family know what I am doing. Some of my older family memebers do not go on Facebook daily and would miss out on my post if it was only temporary. I still post Snapchat stories of cute or funny things to my friends because I do not mind that they will only be temporary. I would recommend to focus on being the family friendly social media rather than trying to stay hip.

Student

I personally HATE the idea of "stories" being featured on Instagram and Facebook. The whole purpose of Instagram was to upload pictures and then videos but "stories"? That just seems so redundant to me. Facebook is supposed to be when a person shares pictures, videos and posts on their timeline so that IS sort of like their "story". Now that all of these social media sites are beginning to have the same function(s), they are becoming less and less attractive. I am considering deleting all of my social media accounts when I graduate from my master's program next year just because I see no point in trying to keep up with the latest trends.

Student

As an avid Snapchat user, this should have no impact on their usage of the app. Snapchat created the original platform to showcase stories to a smaller audience who solely use the app to watch these snippets. This audience mostly consists of friends can be trusted to see funny, crazy and personal content. I have used Instagram stories sparingly due to different add-ons and effects from Snapchat, but I don't see myself using it more. I do not see myself using Facebook stories because of the massive audience of friends I've accumulated over the years of having a profile. In addition, I have several family members that use Facebook daily and I don't feel comfortable sharing content I find funny or content they find inappropriate. The gossip will spread like wild fire. 

Student

As a snapchat user, the impact of Facebook using a similar snapchat story concept does not effect me at all. I still use snapchat for stories just as much as I did when Facebook started to create a similar idea. I would only use Instagram stories to look at what celebreties I follow, post. Snapchat is a category on my phone that I use when checking the story status' of my friends and also when looking to see current pictures/updates of what my friends are doing. 

Student

Snapchat stories still reigns as the king when it comes to story features on social media. Among my friends everyone uses Snapchat stories opposed to Instagram Stories. I also had no idea that Facebook started a stories feature. I would not use Instagram of Facebook Stories. Snapchat was the first social media to invent it and my friends you it the most, therefore it is the one I use. I think it will impact Snapchat's overall story usage due to Instagram and Facebook loyalists, but Snapchat will be the prime story social media app.

Student

Instagram and now Facebook have begun to mimic Snapchat's concept of content expiration. However, I don't believe that either Instagram or Facebook will be able to steal Snapchat's user base overnight. Personally, I would not jump to using Instagram or Facebook stories instead of Snapchat because it's the "newest thing." While it is smart for Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date, I don't think the best way to do so is by copying another app. Perhaps if they were to introduce a unique feature/content I would be more inclined to try it out. I think by adding the (now) repetative story feature Instagram and Facebook are shying from their original purpose, and spreading themselves too thin. 

Student

I do not think that Instagram and Facebook stories will effect the average snapchat user. People use snapchat becasue it is a very limited audience of people who can be friends with you on it and those are people who you trust to view more intimate, funny, or innapropriate stories with. Facebook and Instagram have far too large of an audience that I would feel uncomfortable sharing a story on either of those sites. However, I do think that it is beneficial for celebrities and companies to be able to use stories on those sites and that is where I feel it is a threat. Instagram personalities have thrived on stories and there is a community of people who use it on there but I do not believe it has spread to the average social media user as quickly as snapchat feared it would. 

Student

Since I don't use any kinds of "Video recording" services, I don't mind watching more competition. Because more competition means more convenience for users. Just like the unlimited data competition going on today between Verizon, Atnt, Sprint and T-mobile, customers have more choices and get benefits. As long as they have fair games, there will be one survivor with the ultimate reward for customers. So I want to see more competition in this category.

Student

At this point in time, Facebook stories are up and active. I personally don't think I'd ever post one, though. As previously stated, Snapchat is the original social media platform with stories. I feel like I'll always be loyal to that over posting stories on Instagram and Facbeook. Although I do sometimes post Instagram stories (I like the different effects you can use), I still post Snapchat stories more. When it comes to Facbeook though, I feel like I have such a wide variety of friends since I've had a Facbeook account for longer than other social media outlets and I wouldn't want some of the friends I have on Facebook seeing my stories. 

Student

When Instagram first started sharing stories, I thought it was pretty pointless and was trying to copy snapchat. I follow celebrity and food accounts on instagram and started to watch the stories they post. I have since changed my mind about instagram stories. I personally have never posted an instragram story and do not plan to however i enjoy watching them. Now that Facebook has created a story I think it has become to Repetitive. My friends have not posted lots of stories on FB but when they do it is the same as instagram and Snapchat. I do not think FB stories is will be popular.
