The trend of sharing your photos with the story for just 24 hours makes bigger changes in social media accordingly catching the technology. Firstly, messages from instant messengers focussed on delivering the safe way of chats. Later catching new trends Snapchat introduced post stories feature. And then trend moved to other instant messengers and photo sharing
app such as Instagram, Hike and most recently on WhatsApp. Here are some mixed reviews of youngsters regarding the photo featuring the addition of social media.
Vaidehi Sharma / Student: I spend a lot of time on social media as well as on instant messengers. This new update of a photo featuring on WhatsApp is not really good. The main reason why I dislike this feature is because they removed the Status option from the app.
Himanshu Hirwani / VFX Editor: Photo featuring is the height of fun. I always love to share my stories via pictures on Snapchat. WhatsApp did the tremendous job by updating this feature. So now I can use Video Call, Voice Call, Messaging, and Photo Sharing in one app instead of using several.
Jisha Varghese / Student: As I am a fashion freak so I always love to post my photos on Social media. I love the update that now I cannot post any text Status on WhatsApp which means if I have anything to say I will only say it with photos.
Brinda Thakur / Student: When I got to know about such changes I didn’t update my apps for a while but then if you want to stay updated then your apps should be updated as well. I do not like these features at all and changing status in every 24 hours.
