Since its introduction back in 2016 Instagram stories have become an important feature of the social media platform. It has accompanied us for years now in the social network of photos and videos, where we can share situations that could be important, but not enough to leave on our wall to always.

Since these stories disappear after 24 hours, during this time all our friends have access to it and can see what we publish.


Stories on Instagram were added so that users shared exactly different stories, sagas, unique moments, and like I said maybe not worth going out on the wall, like some kind of food, way out, etc.

But something normal happens in social networks is that people love challenges and always see a way to play and challenge all their friends, now it has become fashionable to only use Instagram stories to make challenges and, in this article, I want to share you with some of the best challenges for Instagram stories, both old and new.


Buddy Challenge

There is a very curious and above all very funny challenge in which the idea is basically to take a picture with one of the arms crossing the back until you get to put it on the other side of the body touching the person, touching basically the belly. A very strange challenge but one that many people wanted to try and it became popular.

Then comes the classic question challenge, to see which person you have followed on Instagram knows you best and identify the person with you, it is a classic that I say because it was also done on Facebook, in this way you can also see how well you know the people around you and follow on Instagram.

Do you like it? Tell me by message 

Another challenge is putting up a sign that says “Do you like it? Tell me by message”, etc. While no doubt accepting this type of challenge you have to be real brave, not just tell someone you like for a simple Instagram Stories challenge.

There are many other interesting and fun challenges, even with a little imagination you can also create your own challenges, it doesn’t need to be something too fancy or complicated, it’s all about using a little imagination. 

Answer the questions

Who doesn’t like asking their friends weird and personal questions? So why not make a fun challenge out of it. That is exactly what Instagram users did with 24 motives 24 names challenge and it has been one of the most fun and entertaining challenges during these tough times, when we are all locked up in houses, due to covid.

As the heading states, the challenge has to do with answering questions, but how exactly it works. First step is to post a picture on your Instagram story of numbers 1 to 24 and nothing else. Then you ask all your friends and followers who volunteered to play the game to assign one number to a person of their choosing. Once they have assigned a number to their friends, you reveal questions corresponding to all 24 numbers and the person assigned to that number as to answer that question.

Best part of the game is none of the participants know the questions they are asking or answering, that is until they are revealed by you. But once revealed they have to answer it. Questions can range from being random to being personal to being outright weird. Players might have to answer a random question like “Do they smoke?” or personal question like “How many people they had sex with?”.

If you like any of these challenges do try them with your friends and if you think of more interesting Instagram challenges, do let us know.
