The update reflects just how serious Instagram is about Stories.

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.

Samsung Begins Mass Production Of Industry First 512GB Embedded Storage
Compare that to the 100 IOPS that conventional MicroSD cards read and you have about a 400x improvement in performance. Even though Samsung is most well known for its flagship phones , it has a massive component business as well.

As mentioned above, Instagram is also getting a Stories Archive feature. To edit or remove a highlight, just tap and hold that highlight on your profile. "We encourage everyone to be thoughtful about interactions with wild animals and the environment to help avoid exploitation and to report any photos and videos you may see that may violate our community guidelines". You can save your highlights into individual Story reels which appear as circles on your profile. Once you're done, your highlight will appear as a circle on your profile that plays as a stand-alone story when someone taps it.

Vandals again attack Lionel Messi statue in Argentina
It has attracted vandals and thieves before, such as in January of this year, when the Messi statue was cut in half at the waist. A search is still on to find the culprits of the act of vandalism, with a motive for the actions still not known.

"Over the past year, Instagram Stories has become a key part of how you express yourself - but there hasn't been an easy way to keep your stories around for more than 24 hours", Instagram said in its announcement. There will be a new icon for the Archive feature on your profile which will let you access all of that content. Users will receive a notification when Stories Archives kicks in, letting them opt out of the feature.
