Bug? Glitch? We may never know why. These were not re-posted archives.
In a (not so interesting but still pretty interesting) discovery going across Instagram, Instagram's Stories had actually showed longer than 24 hours on everybody's stories. This didn't seem to be a problem for a specific set of profiles.
While this isn't a security issue as this is of course posted to a public story (and people outside of the people you accepted to follow you still couldn't see if your account is set to private) this still has been an interesting discovery. Instagram Stories have never been seen to show longer than 24 hours. This is also the case with Snapchat, but temporarily (and only temporarily, this error has been fixed by Instagram) some stories have been showing longer than 24 hours. We couldn't pinpoint how long after the 24 hours you could view the story as it only showed "1d", but of course, has been shown for longer than that.
You can see in the picture above, tech YouTubers on Instagram @eccentech and @ijustine show 1d on their stories.
YouTube Stories continue to show until a week before expiring
With all of these services such as Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Facebook Messenger showing stories for only 24 hours, YouTube took a different approach. You may notice that stories stick around longer than they should. That's because YouTube doesn't have stories expire until a week after the picture or video has been published. This is actually useful for YouTubers who want to get something across without posting to their community tab to a bigger audience, as this allows them more time to see it.
What do you think about this? This wasn't a big deal to begin with, but worth a TrendNation story. Let us know in the comments below.
Also, let us know which service you prefer to post your stories to. Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat? Or maybe you post to all or a couple at the same time?
