According to World Advertising Research Center (WARC), 72% of users will access the internet exclusively through mobile devices by 2025. 

Per 99 Firms, 500 million people view Instagram stories alone, and spend between 15-30 minutes daily doing so. 

Forrester Consulting found that 64% of users preferred a tappable story over its scrolling article equivalent.

Wistia reports that the average engagement rate for short-form video content such as stories is nearly 54%.

What Makes Stories So Popular?

In-app story screens


Unlike other UI elements, which have been adapted from desktop to mobile formats, stories are the first content format developed for mobile creation and consumption.


Stories are easy for users to enjoy! They offer full-screen, distraction-free content that is simple, streamlined, and snackable.


Tappable, shoppable stories put users in the driver's seat while paving the path toward desired actions and conversions.


The ephemeral nature and off-the-cuff vibe of stories offer contrast to the highly curated nature of corporate social media feeds.

Why Should Your Brand Use Stories?

Meet User Expectations

The mobile-first future is here. Millennials, Gen Z, and younger audiences rely on mobile experiences for shopping, e-commerce, content consumption, and communication. 

Empower Users with Familiarity

Stories have been in use for nearly a decade meaning that most users are already familiar with them and even new users are delighted by how intuitive they are to navigate. 

Start a Dialogue for Actionable Insight

Interactive stories let you take the pulse of your users on any topic, at any time, so you can make informed decisions based on first-party data.

Deepen Brand Loyalty

Use stories to offer your audience a “backstage peek” into the brand they love! Stories feel authentic, intimate, and genuine– especially when personalized!
