Ok, i was bored and yes, i have been following the rants lately about these two guys, Instagram and SnapChat which if you are a social media junkie should agree with me that these two are serious rivals and yea, you either use one or both, but most times social media fans are prone to using the two.
If you have been following these two lately, you probably should recall there was once a time Instagram planned buying SnapChat. We all know how Facebook are bound to buying prospective MVPs. But unfortunately, Snap-Chat turned them down and, they had to move on making the ring ready for a competition. Something i love watching. So we have these two, and ever since then, we have been seeing a copying “mundo” between the two parties, sshh.. i would be sharing some of them here..
Instagram Stories, SnapChat Stories, Really?
If you are just like me, whom good network speed have been allergic to, you probably should not know about the Instagram stories. Now, just for the records, the Instagram stories is a new feature the guys at Instagram launched. This way you would be able share all the moments of your day, not just the ones you want to keep on your profile. As you share multiple photos and videos, they appear together in a slideshow format: your story.” Users will now have the ability to post creative content (including the use of text and drawings tools) that is separate from your profile and feed; the Stories then disappear after 24 hours.
Now when i heard about this, what ran through my mind was SnapChat’s Feature, which is exactly like the Instagram Stories .(Guess if you can’t beat them, you copy them).
Say Bye to SnapCodes on Facebook..
Promoting your Snapchat channel on social networks, especially Facebook haven’t been easy.Naturally, users found different ways to cross-promote their SnapChat accounts on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Unfortunately, Facebook secretly removed profile pictures of those who used SnapCode without any notice. As seen from DigiLayer,
“After everything, we received a report that Facebook and Twitter are actually not interested in promoting SnapChat on their platform.

Now who would actually win in this battle? I don’t know, may be you might have to suggest. And by the way, what platform do you patronize often?
