Stories & Telegram

Today marks the day Telegram decided to roll out Stories (but only for Telegram Premium users at the moment).

It adds to the (already long) list of apps having this "feature".

It's the right time to post a quote from a friend of mine:

Every program attempts to expand until it can show stories. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can.

The "stories" functionality in apps has become increasingly popular over the years, and it originated on Snapchat in 2013. They play on the unapologetically human fear of missing out, creating a sense of urgency among viewers. This brings an increase of interaction time across the platform. This is all part of the increasing need to share real-time updates.

We don't need stories in messaging apps.
