IT’S A CUT-THROAT world out there.

Social media platforms are constantly vying for your attention with new features, filters and fresh ways to show off what you’re doing at any given moment.

Similar products to its offering – disappearing images and ‘stories’ – are now available on other platforms, including Instagram.
