But My Story has always represented a singular, personal experience. We wanted to build something that offered a community perspective – lots of different points of view. After all, our friends often see the same things in totally different ways.
We built Our Story so that Snapchatters who are at the same event location can contribute Snaps to the same Story. If you can’t make it to an event, watching Our Story makes you feel like you’re right there! It’s really easy to use.
We’re making Our Story available for the first time at Electric Daisy Carnival this weekend (and we’re providing free WiFi for Snapchat and Insomniac!).
If you’re at Electric Daisy Carnival, simply add a Snap to “Our EDC Story” that appears in your “Send to…” page. You’ll need to turn on location services to let Snapchat know that you’re actually at the event. We don’t store your location.
Our Story is fairly simply to use, if you're at a popular event like the Electric Daisy Carnival, you will see the option to add it to that story. Snapchat uses your location to see if you're actually at the event, but it promises to never store it.
Our Story is already part of Snapchat so there’s no need to update.
This news comes right as Facebook's Snapchat competitor is rumored to launch.
