Instagram has just rolled out a few new updates that I’m and super stoked about. Brands and businesses finally have the chance for their Instagram stories to get discovered by accounts other than their followers. *DRUM ROLL* Hashtag stories and location stories.

Can we get a happy dance GIF going?? Please. And thank you. These Instagram updates have me so excited. Along with these Instagram stories updates they have also added: better stickers, face masks / AR integration on stories, the ability to link out for accounts with over 10,000 followers, and archived posts. What will be next?

Each update just seems to get better and better for marketing your business on Instagram. Are you using stories yet?
