The8App offers it’s members 2 ways to share their content,

You can post

1/ Moments – Stand-alone, single posts.

2/ Stories – Group posts that allow you to continue to add to them after the first post to the story.

8App stories are really useful if you want to keep specific content grouped together. For example, you could create a Holiday Story and share all your recent holiday pictures to a specific story. Or maybe a family story with pictures of your kids. Story posts keep all the images that you add to the story together rather than having them as separate individual Moment posts within your social feed. And what is great is that you can add images to a new story or an existing story in multiples. This is a great time saver.

Here is how you create an 8App Story with The8App

When you share content to The8App you are given the option of posting as a Moment or adding to an existing Story or creating a new 8App Story I have added two quote images to my camera roll from a Quotes and Saying Android App.The images can be seen below.

So let’s add them to a Story

1/ Select the image or images that you would like to add to an 8App story from your camera roll.

2/ Edit your image or images that you would like to share. Add a description and caption if needed. Add some relevant hashtags to help get your images seen and if want you can get creative with stickers.

The first image that you add to your story becomes the cover image for the story. It is repeated and shown every time you add to the story. You might want to consider creating a unique cover image for stories. Have a look at what i created for my Quotes Story that i added the above images to.
