Instagram has added a new sticker “ADD YOURS”.
As of now, the feature may be available in only some countries, and if you don’t have this, you may need to wait until Instagram rolls out the feature worldwide to all its users.
Let’s understand how you can use the feature:
What is the ‘ADD YOURS’ Sticker on Instagram Story?
The sticker helps you to create a challenge on a certain topic where other users can share the content asked in the challenge.
One of the recent similar trends made with the new sticker includes “Drop your best sunset photos”.
For instance, if you want to create a new trend “Show me the pic you recently took”, you need to create a story selecting your recent photo, select the ADD YOURS sticker, write a prompt “Show me the pic you recently took” and share it to your story.
Your followers who see your story will be able to click the Add Yours icon in your story to add their photo and post it to their stories. This basically creates a story chain.
The leftward facing arrow below the text as shown in the image above allows you to see the list of users who have participated in the trend.

Step 1: Create a new story selecting a suitable photo.
Step 2: Tap the sticker icon at the top and select ADD YOURS sticker.
