Morgan Bowen's curator insight, April 17, 6:02 PM
-20 million people use Instagram daily.
-Instagram is taking more of Snapchat features.
-They have selfie stickers that people can put on a photo.
-About 50 million daily storied every 3 months.
-Instagram has been growing ever since the whole Snapchat debut.

I think social media will keep improving itself no matter what. Either way social media is all used for socializing. Now and days almost all social media has the same things. Instagram should've just stayed Instagram. Snapchat should stay snapchat. If not then they should make an app that combines them all.
