Snapchat May Allow Public Stories That Don’t Disappear

Snapchat‘s allure has largely revolved around the disappearing nature of its content, but that might not be the case for some material in the future. Reuter’s tipsters claim Snap is considering making public Stories (that is, ones that show up in Our Story) last longer, or even permanently.

You could still delete them yourself, but they wouldn’t automatically vanish. The company is reportedly thinking about revealing the identities of Snapchat users who make public posts, too. Private snaps would remain as ephemeral as ever, so you wouldn’t have to worry about a permanent record of your hot gossip.

The move would be prompted at least in part by Snapchat’s partners. While it’s possible to embed Stories on the web or otherwise share them, some partners refuse because they know it will disappear after 90 days.

What’s the point of capturing Snapchat footage of a breaking news story if you can’t revisit that video a year later? One Reuters source said Snap had already been talking with one parnter about extending the lifespan of Stories, and might make some celebrities’ Stories permanent.

Snap declined to comment.

There are plenty of incentives to go this route. Money, to no one’s surprise, is a major concern. Snap hasn’t been in great shape lately, and this would let the company charge more for ads knowing they’ll stick around for much longer.

It would also give Snap a better footing against its arch-rival Instagram, which has always had permanent public posts even as Stories remained temporary. You might not ditch Instagram if this change takes place, but you may be in less of a rush to ditch Snapchat if you know some of your posts will live in perpetuity.

On the field, he has gone on tours with Bisa Kdei and done most of his short social media videos which have become the norm for most African acts to bring their fans closer to their works, shows and business meeting. Mostly posted on Instagram is one minute video that summarized all the road works without leaving anything out, a tedious process that demands concentration and attention to details, many of which Kay Studios possess and does without any headache drawing and fetching applause, and recommendations from all.
