Snapchat now allows sharing on other social media

The redesigned app will be rolled out to users alongside the Story sharing update

The shareable Stories feature goes into effect Wednesday for those who already have the redesigned Snapchat, according to CNBC, and will see a broader launch in the coming weeks. However, being able to share Stories outside of the app could also pique the interest of those who never downloaded it or who have been put off by a UX that's proved confusing to newcomers in the past. Users can share that content by finding it in the Discover section of the app, and then pressing and holding down on the tile to pull up the new share option.

The company has introduced a new feature which allows you to send Official Stories, Our Stories and Search Stories to people who don't use Snapchat. It does not include Publisher Stories or Shows, for now. "This means that we must become exponentially more productive as we add additional resources and team members".

Instagram is testing a new feature that notifies users when screenshot or screen recording of your stories taken by some one.

Snapchat may provide the ideal medium for maintaining relationships with close friends, without the pressure to present oneself in extraordinary form, say scientists who delved into why people use the addictive social platform which allows short, quick posts.

Crucially the sharing element only applies to Stories which are high-profile or publicly viewable. Snap says that, similar to the situation on mobile, Our Stories will be available on the web for up to 24 hours before disappearing.

It has also revealed that you'll soon be able to upload photos and videos of any size to Stories, without them being cut or resized.

Our Stories relate to specific events such as music festivals and are hand curated.

Meanwhile, Snapchat has reported lower-than-expected 178 million daily active users in the third quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Search Stories are another way to discover user generated Snaps on Snapchat.

Finally, you can share Search Stories, which are stories based around terms you search for in the app - like "puppies" or "football".
