Snapchat's My Stories vs. Private Stories

When you take a picture or a video, your tale is shared online for all your friends to see. Making a Custom Story is necessary before making a Private Story. You may then make it private after you've created one.

Private Stories allow you to specify who will see your article before it is published. To your Private Stories, only you can post content.

More Details on Private Snapchat Stories

No alerts are issued when you give someone access to your private tale. In their eyes, it seems to be just another narrative. So, unless you state that they are the only ones who can view your material, you can't use this feature as a marketing strategy.

On Snapchat, all stories, private or not, have a 24-hour lifespan. Even group stories made during activities or travels barely endure a day. To avoid this, select the save option while creating a new private tale.
