Instagram Stories’ new #challenge feature

Social media challenges have always been popular across many platforms, especially in recent years. Now, with more and more people staying home during COVID-19, many have been looking for new, creative ways to pass the time and Instagram may have done just that.

Instagram’s new challenge sticker has become for many a great way to interact with friends whilst still social distancing. Although Instagram challenges have been quite popular in recent years, there hasn’t really been an easy way to give and receive nominations for a certain challenge.

If you see a challenge that you like while scrolling through your friends stories, all you need to do is tap on the sticker which will take you to the Instagram stories camera where you are able to challenge and then nominate a few friends to take part in the challenge with you.

You can also search for challenges by opening your Instagram Stories camera, clicking the stickers button and selecting the #challenge sticker. Some of the most popular challenges include

  • #Untiltomorrow
  • #Drawsomething
  • #Pushupchallenge
  • #Plankingchallenge
  • #Coupleschallenge

While the world is currently living a quarantine lifestyle, there is a definite trend in fitness related challenges while people attempt to exercise from home – and everyone is loving it!

It’s safe to say that we’re big fans of the Instagram challenges! Which challenges have you tried out?
