Instagram might be working on school Stories | Social Media

Instagram appears to be on a school-based version of Stories that would only contain content from a particular school’s student body.

The code for Stories was first spotted by tipster Jane Manchun Wong, and it details a couple of features. Only people within the school’s community would be able to contribute and view their Story. Also, Stories would be moderated and “manually reviewed to make sure the community is safe.” Instagram declined to comment.

School Stories are manually reviewed:

“Only people in the community can see this. School are manually reviewed to make sure the community is safe

The idea of school-specific Stories builds off of other school-based initiatives Instagram has tested out. This summer, the company tested a groups feature for students currently enrolled in college. Users invited to a school’s on Instagram can view the members’ public Stories and direct message them from the community lists. Snapchat similarly experimented with school stories back in 2015 with a short-lived feature called “Our Campus Story.”

Just because there’s code currently in the app doesn’t necessarily mean it’s coming or even being tested, just that it’s being internally built by Instagram.
