Snapchat shared stories will let users who have been added to custom stories invite their own friends to contribute.
Custom Stories were introduced to let Snapchatters create Stories and add their friends to view them and contribute with their own content. Snapchat Shared Stories expand on that concept, letting users who have been added to the group invite their own friends to participate.

Like all other Stories types, Share Stories will also disappear after 24 hours. Snap also added a “privacy” layer, with automatic notifications when a user joins a Share Story that includes someone they have blocked.
Snap explained that Shared Stories are moderated through a combination of automatic language detection and new community review tools that give users an active role in keeping the community safe and fun.
Snap said in a blog post, “With this next-generation Story, we’re hoping to help Snapchatters turn shared moments into shared memories. Have Snaps to share? Head to the profile page, tap new story then select Shared Story to get started.”
