Snapchat to let users share Stories elsewhere

What should be stressed about the new feature is that is that only certain Snapchat stories are shareable outside of the app.

The feature was first reported to be on the way toward the end of past year. Only users with the redesign will be able to use the Story sharing function.

Snapchat, famous for its image messaging and multimedia platform, has launched another feather to its application, allowing users to share some public "stories" through links.

The flu season hasn't peaked and can worsen says CDC
A total of 30 children have died from influenza this flu season , including 10 new cases reported to the CDC as of January 13. Symptoms can include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

Snapchat updated in November a year ago and some users complained that the app became too complicated, and that they couldn't find some of their favourite features. The company said Our Stories and Search Stories will be available outside of the Snapchat app for 30 days, while Official Stories (posted by top influencers on the platform) will be available outside of Snapchat for 24 hours. This merger would permit users to share their stories on the applications like Twitter and Facebook.

To do this, users should open the app and press and hold the Story's icon in the Discover portion of the app.

According to the firm, Snapchat is one of the world's most used cameras, with the company's figures claiming more than 3.5 billion Snaps are created every day in the app. Each link includes a "Download Snapchat" button that encourages those who view the story and aren't on the app to try it out for themselves. At the very least, it'll inform you who to block or report. Giving users tools to help identify who's harassing or potentially preying on them is the step in the right direction to curb creepy social media activity.

Guv sends reminder to EC on disqualification of 17 MLAs
BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said , "It is a decision of the Election Commission (EC) and the President has accepted it". The move also is a massive blow for the AAP which has a massive majority in the 70-member Delhi assembly with 65 seats.

The update also means that journalists will be able to embed Snapchat Stories in articles, so you're probably going to see a lot more snap-laden listicles going forward.

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. An emoji will also appear next to their name, so you know they're the real deal.
