Instagram tests Group Stories after Facebook ditched them

  Instagram tests Group Stories after Facebook ditched them Facebook might not be giving up on Group Stories just because it's cutting them from its main app. App sleuther Jane Manchun Wong has found test code for a Group Story feature in Instagram. There's no mystery to how it works -- you'd just choose to "share to Group Story." Still, it could be helpful for those moments when you'd like to recap your adventures for a smaller social circle beyond those you've marked as Close Friends. Like other tests,Like other tests, there's no guarantee this will make the cut. That's particularly relevant given the fate of the equivalent feature in Facebook. However, it might stand a better chance of survival in Instagram.

In comedian Ali Wong's "Dear Girls," Wong opens by declaring that she was nervous to write a book because she didn't feel smart enough. She found her groove, she says, when she realized that she could embrace her vulgar and silly self and release any pressure to sound particularly intellectual or wise.

  Instagram testing group story feature despite Facebook ditching it Over the weekend, reverse software engineer Jane Manchun Wong discovered by looking through Instagram's code that a group stories feature could soon be coming to the stable version of the app. Notable for finding unannounced upcoming features and security vulnerabilities within an application's code, reverse software engineer Jane Manchun Wong recently reported that Facebook-owned Instagram is currently testing Group Stories.Notable for finding unannounced upcoming features and security vulnerabilities within an application's code, reverse software engineer Jane Manchun Wong recently reported that Facebook-owned Instagram is currently testing Group Stories.

And yet Wong proves herself to be as brilliant as ever, showcasing her unique ability to use jokes about things like poop and other bodily excretions to communicate relatable and important truths about everything from parenthood to marriage to marginalization.

"Dear Girls" gives readers a glimpse into Wong's life before and since her Netflix special, "Baby Cobra," made her a household name. The book is structured as a series of letters to Wong's two daughters, with whom she was famously pregnant in each of her first two Netflix specials. Wong dispenses advice to Mari and Nikki through exceedingly honest stories about her life (which she forbids them from reading until they are at least 21 years old).

The book is laugh-out-loud funny, each chapter filled with that signature Ali Wong charm. Wong is self-assured and raunchy, yet at the same time vulnerable and sentimental. There is so much love in these pages between Wong and her family. She writes beautifully about her parents, siblings, daughters and husband. She also writes about bombing at tiny comedy clubs, being broke in New York City, dating the wrong men and ultimately, "trapping" her husband.

"Dear Girls" is a fun, easy read and will surely charm fans of Wong's comedy.
