Instagram just copied Snapchat (again)

Nope, we did not just re-promoted an old story. Instagram just copied yet again another feature from Snapchat.

Today, Instagram updated their app with a new “geostickers” feature in Stories that is nearly the same as — yeah, you know it — Snapchat!

First rolling out in New York City and Indonesia, the new stickers are tied to specific cities and multiple landmarks within the area and is “designed to match the vibe of the location.”

Well at least, they didn’t straight up copy the design from Snapchat. They had their own team to design the geostickers. Eventually, these stickers will be available to more users as they add them inside the app. Once available here in The Philippines, these geostickers will be found right inside the sticker section of Stories.

So much for originality, right?
