Just as you’re about to get the hang of Snapchat, Instagram unveils some major news. Instagram, too, will offer a photo-disappearing feature called Instagram Stories. Sounds oddly familiar, right?

This feature works similarly to the one you adore on Snapchat, and it’s located in a separate section within Instagram.

You’ll see an option to shoot videos or photos, and these can be illustrated with captions or drawings. Your pics are then combined into a “story” which you can share with certain friends, or publicly, within the app for 24 hours.

Instagram Stories will be rolling out globally on iOS and Android this week. Yay or nay? You tell us..
