When I share something to my story, where does it appear?

When you post a photo or video to your story, it appears in the following places:

  • On your profile: A colorful ring will appear around your profile picture, and people can tap it to see your story. Photos and videos from your story don't appear on your profile grid.
  • At the top of Feed: Your profile picture will appear in a row at the top of your followers' Feeds, and they can tap it to see your story.
  • In Feed next to posts you share: When you share a post, a colorful ring will appear around your profile picture in Feed. People can tap it to see your story.

Stories shared by public accounts may appear in Search & Explore. If you've added a hashtag, location or location-based sticker to your story, it may also appear on hashtag or location pages.
