Amongst all the recent Instagram updates, the one that got introduced today is probably one of my favorites. It’s a feature for users like us to highlight our stories on our profiles so that it stays permanently available for viewing.

In other words, ‘pinning’ your favorite Stories into different categories so anyone can view them anytime they want, FOREVER!

To do this, the process is REALLY simple. Let me show you a step by step now:

STEP 1: After publishing a Story, open the Story and tap on ‘Highlight’ at the bottom right.
