If you’ve been using Instagram for a while now, you might be aware of several lags and glitches on the Instagram mobile app which weren’t there before. You might’ve also noticed the new updates, which aren’t quite as smooth as they used to be.
This is a perfect example of how dependency doesn’t depend on your job; it depends on how well you do it. Would you have thought that you’ll ever depend on an app on your phone to tell you the news when newspapers were still being used primarily?
Anyhow, for now, it appears that Instagram is here to stay.
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about whether or not it is possible for you to change the amount of time your picture is displayed on your Instagram story.
Can You Change How Long Picture Displayed on Instagram Story?
Before you can get your hopes high, let us tell you: you can’t change how long your story stays up on Instagram. In fact, the entire point of the feature is to keep your picture up there for only 24 hours as a life update, not as a permanent milestone.
You have two options that you can choose from if you want to keep a picture on your Instagram profile for longer than 24 hours: posting the picture or creating a highlight.
When you post a picture on Instagram, it’ll always be visible on your profile grid for all your followers and the entire world if you have a public account.
Needless to say, unless it’s a remarkably good picture of you or something important, we won’t suggest posting it.
