Once inside, click on your profile avatar that you have in the top left corner for create a new story.



As you can see, a camera will open for you to take a photo or record a video. You have to opt for some kind of story, be it photography, video, boomerang, etc. To do this, you can slide your finger left or right to see the options.

Another option you have is to choose a photo or video from the gallery or reel of images you have on your device. To do this you have to slide your finger upwards. This way you can have access to latest images or videos you have captured.

In case the image or video is very old, you should leave Instagram and enter your gallery, search for it and select share from the icon with the three dots you have in the upper right corner of the file.

In case you don't want to place any of them, you can choose the Create option, this will place a uniform background so that you can add your own question.

To activate a question we have to press on the stickers. It is represented by a square face icon. You can view it at the top of the screen. From there, click Questions.



You must write the question you want other users to answer when they see your story. When you are done, click Send in the lower right corner of the screen and then select Your Story if you want everyone who follows you to see it or Best friends so that only people you have selected as such can see it. .

Ready! You will have already shared a story with an active question.
