The new feature will let users invite friends and share stories centring around major events, trips, birthday parties or a new baby story just for the family, for instance.

Custom Stories will also let you customise the visibility of the story to make sure no stalker can have a access to the content. Alongside, you can also Geofence a custom story to make it visible to the users currently in that particular location.

To create a new story, all you need to do is tap on the “Create Story” icon on the top-right corner of the Stories page. Like other stories, customised stories too will disappear after 24 hours. But if someone contributes to the story, it will remain for one more day.
