Back in February, users started seeing notifications when others took screenshots of their Stories. It was a test, and Instagram has decided it will not roll the feature out.
For the longest time, Instagram users could take a screenshot of another user’s Stories without them knowing anything about it. But in February this was all about to change. Instagram started warning some users it would notify people whose Stories you had taken a screenshot or recording of.
Even if that feature has always been a part of Snapchat, Instagram users were shocked. Stalking days were over.
Even worse, it was a test, which means only a select number of users would receive the notifications. Which also meant you could not risk it and had to totally let go of the habit.
Well, 4 months later, Instagram has decided the feature would not be released. The company declined to comment but it seems the feature was not thought to be worth the potential backlash, had it been rolled out to all users.
So what are you waiting for, go screenshot the heck out of your friends’ Stories.
