The saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Well, Instagram doesn’t care, introducing Type Mode for Instagram Stories. Now, instead of placing cool photos and videos into your Stories, you can just write text that others will see, and spoiler alert, this kinda sucks.

For those who may find this interesting, inside Type Mode you will find various backgrounds and fancy fonts to write whatever is on your mind. Facebook has already done this for its News Feed that you may have seen already, so if you’ve mastered that, then you’ll know exactly how this works.

Instagram has already lost a user in me with its non-chronological feed, but now that I know Stories may not even have photos or videos in them, I just don’t see the point in ever opening one.

Instagram, what are you doing?
