Decisions, decisions: Instagram Stories just launched this week, and the fashion world is still scrambling to figure out how to incorporate it into their social media strategy. But it seems like they are already showing a preference: As AdAge reports, Instagram’s feature has a wider reach than Snapchat for many companies. “Nike, for example, generated 800,000 views in 24 hours for an Instagram Story that it posted on Tuesday, the first day the feature was available,” AdAge reports. “On Snapchat, Nike’s best video got 66,000 views, according to Nike and its social media agency Laundry Service.” Only time will tell which platform will reign supreme.
