What are Stories?

Stories are a brand new type of post unique to 23snaps. Parents and families can quickly and easily combine photos and text into beautiful multimedia vignettes and post them to their Newsfeed alongside traditional photos and status updates.

 

 

 

 

Building a Story on the 23snaps website

Click on the orange +Post button in the top right corner and select Story from the resulting options. At the top of the page you can add a title to your Story, simply click the box that says "Click to add a title" to enter your text. When you're happy with your title, simple click anywhere outside of the text box to finish typing.

  

Now you can add some content. To enter some text just tap the box that says "Click here to add text". Enter whatever text you need and then click Done. (Please be aware that there is a limit of approximately 2000 characters per text entry - but you can make as many entries per story as you like).

To add photos repeat the process, but this time click on the box that says "Click here to add photos". Now you just need to follow the usual process to upload a photo, you can also upload multiple photos in each section using the process to batch upload, but please be aware that you are limited to 15 photos per batch. 

   

You can continue adding as much content as you want until your story is complete.

 

You can alter the order of your Story at any time by clicking (and holding) on the 3 lines located on the left of the content you wish to move, and drag it to it's new position. You can delete an entire entry by clicking on the trash icon to the right of the content. You will not be asked to confirm whether you would like to delete this section, so use this option only when you are certain you wish to remove the entry. 

If you have added multiple photos to one entry and would like to remove only one, you can do so by hovering your curser over the image you wish to delete until the Remove option appears. Click this to delete that individual photo.

  

When your Story is complete, click Continue to move on to the publishing screen. Here you can choose which children to tag, the date you want the Story to appear on your timeline, whether to include your Story in a Collection and whether to share the post privately with only your partner, or with your entire circle of connected family and friends. When everything is set exactly how you want it, just hit Publish Story
