If you've been scrounging for Instagram Stories to watch outside of the ones your friends make, you're in luck. After slipping Stories into the Explore tab for a limited number of users, it's now making the feature available to everyone. Visit the Explore tab and you'll see a section full of suggested stories that are personalized to your interests.

As before, this promises to help Instagram as much as it helps you. If you have a steady stream of new Stories to watch, you're more likely to stick around instead of heading over to arch-rival Snapchat. Moreover, it should help grow Instagram's already sizable user base -- newcomers will have more people to follow even if they're not all that interested in the usual stream of photos and videos.
