What Is the “Add Yours” Instagram Stories Sticker?

The “Add Yours” sticker is a new way to create viral content chains on the app — and it’s unlike any other sticker in the current lineup.

When a user shares the “Add Yours” sticker on their stories, a chain reaction begins — their followers and ultimately, any user on Instagram, can take part in the challenge.
