Instagram Stories is Facebook's most obvious shot at Snapchat

A short-lived slideshow of candid images and videos sure sounds familiar.

Snapchat HQ is likely buzzing from this latest Facebook threat, but the messaging app still has a few features Facebook and Instagram haven’t replicated. The constantly rotating menu of selfie lenses and location-based filters are still hugely popular and just as fun to use as they day they launched.

I like Snapchat Stories, and I’ll probably use Instagram Stories, too. The new feature offers more freedom to share images or videos that aren’t as perfectly filtered or curated as the standard Instagram post usually is. But, come on Facebook: A little originality would be nice.
