This sticker lets users interact with others on the platform by creating a public thread so that anyone can respond, post, or participate in it. This interactive sticker lets users make a content chain among their friends that can be based on any topic, for example, “outfit of the day”, “best sunset picture” and so on. This way, others can also add pictures about the same topic to their Stories. Also Read - Here's how to create quirky selfie stickers on Instagram

The new “Add Yours” sticker has been rolled out after the “Link Sticker” that was rolled out recently. Earlier, Instagram users had to add the “Swipe Up” option to add links to their stories. The new Link Sticker lets viewers simply tap on the sticker twice to visit the link. Notably, this feature is available for all users on Instagram, unlike the swipe-up method which was available only for users with 10,000+ followers.
Additionally, Instagram has released three new Diwali-themed stickers. The stickers are launched as part of the global campaign #ShareYourLight created in collaboration with Bengaluru-based illustrator, muralist, and pattern designer Neethi.
These stickers will be visible to your followers in a Diwali multi-author story. Whenever you post stories using these stickers, they will be visible to the followers.
