Adding a Story to Highlights

Stories disappear from your profile, Feed and Direct inbox after 24 hours, unless you add them to your profile as highlights. To add a story to Story Highlights, follow these steps:
Red number one

Profile: Go to your profile and tap Story Highlights below your username and bio.

Red number two

Add Highlight: Tap "+" to select the story or stories you want to add to highlights, then tap Next.

Red number three

Cover Photo: Tap Edit Cover > Choose a cover photo > Tap Done.

Red number four

Upload Highlight: Enter a story name for your highlight, then tap Add (iPhone) or Done (Android). You can add more photos or videos to your highlight at any time by tapping and holding on the highlight and then tapping Edit Highlight.

Note: Stories you add as highlights remain visible as highlights until you remove them, even after the original story has disappeared. Keep in mind that those you've allowed to see your story can also see your highlights.
