As you guys might already know, I’m a total Snapchat aficionado (“tovogueorbust,” if you’re interested in following along) so of course, Instagram had to come out with Insta stories now to totally have me torn between the two. I’m basically like JoJo torn between these two overly groomed idiots (I’m watching The Bachelorette finale right now, so late to the party). So I’m curious…which do you guys prefer and where do you want to see more action?

What are you guys thinking? If you’re Snapchat fanatics, are you still hoping to follow and share everything on there, are any of you thinking of making the jump fully over to Instagram Stories, or are you going try to balance both?

For now, I’m just going to take that last option and try to share fun, unique content on both platforms but I’ve got to say, as much as I love Snapchat (and I really do!), the convenience of having everything in one app is so tempting. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts – let me know in the comments!

    I LOVE snapchat and to be honest am really bummed instgram has interfered. ☹️
    I use/refer to snapchat and Instagram in different mindsets so I’m bummed I now have to refer to both for ‘story’ purposes. For whatever reason I’m finding that now I don’t scroll my Instagram feed for my usual visual inspiration after watching all the insta-stories… 😏

    My phone basically can’t function when I use snapchat, all the videos are choppy and broken, but for some reason insta stories run smoothly and so clear! So naturally I’ll pick the one that works with my phone. I also like that it’s built into one app and kinda being forced to watch stories from people you’re already following is pretty fun. It took way too much effort to find people on snapchat and I found that very frustrating.
    As for filters, I’m sure insta will come up with something, although I like the realness of it sans filters, it’s fresh and raw, no need to hide!

    Definitely Instagram – love having it all in one place, and now that a lot of stories are being posted on Instagram, I doubt I’ll bother checking Snapchat (which I never fill embraced in any event – I find it annoying to navigate, etc.).
