    "DownloadGram is so simple. I thought it would be complicated because i'm not a computer person but my grandma could do this. It's just so simple you just copy the address and you paste and and you click download."

WHAT’S THE MEANING

Launched in August 2016, Instagram Stories (also known as IG stories) is a feature of Instagram that allows users to capture and post highly customizable photos and videos. It offers various effects, layers, and filter which users can choose from. The catch is it vanishes after 24 hours. Interestingly, IG Stories and Snapchat share this relatively the same feature, as ‘snaps’ are disappearing multimedia messages.

DID YOU KNOW

Have you ever wondered how the viewers of your Instagram Stories are ranked in a particular order? The hype on the number of followers of social media accounts triggered more curiosity among the users as they observe that the viewers of their stories are ranked. In an article posted on Social Media Week, a number of Reddit users conducted an experiment on how Instagram comes up with the top-ranked story viewers. Among the theories is the ‘stalking theory’, which says that your top viewer is the person who stalks you the most—this is intriguing. Yet another theory is ‘the top 50 theory’, in which the chronological order applies for the first 50 viewers however as soon as it reaches 50, the algorithm changes and the interaction factor comes to play. In this theory, the order is based on the users you have the most frequent interaction with, this includes visiting the user’s feed, the likelihood that you would be interested, the timeliness of the post, and the most intriguing factor is your relationship with the person.
