Instagram copies Snapchat yet again

Taking yet another cue from the Snapchat playbook, Instagram now offers geostickers in its ephemeral Stories feature. It’s currently only live in two cities — Jakarta and New York City — and offers visual accessories that represent your present location, down to the neighborhood.

Sell that Snap stock now*, Facebook and Instagram are just going to bleed it dry and have the cash behind it to take their time.

*Lets be honest, no one bought it. Well, no one other than NBC who wasted bought US$500m and locked themselves into it for 12 months. Eeek.
