Instagram did not select as a preferable social media platform by teens since 2015. However, the copycat moves of the Facebook-owned company was successful in eating the Snapchat new users. Instagram and WhatsApp copied the Snapchat’s story feature and successfully allure the more active and monthly users than the original creator of the feature.
