5 Simple Steps on How to Use Snapchat Group Story

how to use snapchat group stories 1

Snapchat, the app that lets users share photos and video sharing to your friends, have introduced another yet innovative feature call group video story. The feature update is the first of its kind in the social media platform as of to date and this can be seen as Snapchat effort to compete ahead from Instagram and Facebook.

So, what is the Snapchat group video story? It is a feature that lets users create a group video surrounding a certain event such as wedding, graduation ceremony, reunion party, concert or birthday party as an example. You can then create a group video and then invite your friends to add their video as well to that group video. It will then become a compilation of snap video surrounding that event but taken at different angle from all of your friends.

Another thing about this collaborative story is that the group stories will only disappear after 24 hours have passed without anyone adding a new photo or video into that story. So, you and your friends can keep a story alive as long as possible if they are any of your friends who keep adding a clip or picture into it.

Another interesting thing with the new feature is the Geofence feature. All your friends and their friends can add to the story as well as view it as long as they are within the Geofence perimeter.

The good thing about this feature is that it will attract people that do not use Snapchat to start using it. The reason is because if some of your friends created a group video story, and asked you to contribute to it, the only you can share is by using the Snapchat app. The end result of the video group story would be a total recording of the event from different perspectives and timeline as well.
