Called Stories Highlights, these collections of past Stories can be cobbled together from the Stories posts that Instagram will now automatically save to an account's private in-app archive of posts it has published; accounts can disable this auto-archiving feature. Previously, messages posted to Stories disappeared forever after a day. The basics of what this allows you to do is take Stories that you've shared and group them into a featured post right on the top of your profile page. Facebook is looking for new ways to compete with Snap Inc.'s Snapchat. Insta users can now post a story and not worry about having to download it if they want to view it after the 24-hour mark. There you'll be able to toggle between archived images as well as archived stories.

Users will receive a notification when Stories Archives kicks in, letting them opt out of the feature.
