For users to share their Snapchat Stories, they have to go into the Discover section, create links corresponding to the videos they'd like to share, copy those links, and post them on social platforms like Twitter and Facebook or share them with friends via text.
That's a departure from past approaches where Snap worked to distance the key product from rival offerings. Search Stories is another way to access public, user-generated snaps by searching keywords, and Snap says those will be available on the web for 30 days, just like Official Stories.
When you choose to share elsewhere, Snapchat provides a link to your Story on the web.
Instagram is testing a new feature that notifies users when screenshot or screen recording of your stories taken by some one. Only users with the redesign will be able to use the Story sharing function. Snapchat is looking to expand their presence and allow users to view content outside of the iOS and Android. This cloning has resulted in causing a loss in the user base of the app leading to an increased user base of Instagram as compared to Snapchat.
Over time, they may become more widely available. This will pull up more information about the story including an option to "share" it.More news: Halep hammers Pliskova for final four spot

The update also means that journalists will be able to embed Snapchat Stories in articles, so you're probably going to see a lot more snap-laden listicles going forward.
Snapchat has updated Stories-it's now easier to share your stories even with people who don't have or use the app.
"Our Stories make you feel like you're at an event, festival or celebration anywhere in the world and are hand-curated or automatically created by Team Snapchat".
For now, Snapchat will not include ads within the Stories that people view outside of its app, according to the Snap spokesperson.
A Snapchat web player has launched to support the new feature. There's no indication that Snapchat will open up to general users at this time, but it may well do so in the future.
