Instagram, arguably social media's most powerful tool, has just launched two new 'stories' to their already growing empire - and you may feel like you've seen them before...

The two stories in question are being dubbed location stories and hashtag stories, and look something similar to something most of us have already... 


Yep, that's right - Snapchat.

Snapchat users will be able to spot the distinct similarities between the current Snapchat layout and the new Instagram design. 

Users of Instagram will now be able to see what’s happening around their location and, similarly, will be able to source stories related to their hashtagged interests.

Seems eerily similar, no?
