If you don't want Instagram to save your stories, select the three vertical dots from the archive page, go to Settings, and deselect "Save to Archive".

The next feature added by Facebook owned Instagram is 'Story Highlights'.

The Highlight will appear as a circle on your profile and plays as a stand-alone story when clicked upon.

The first new Stories feature is called Highlights. Highlights will surely be well utilized by brands who pour resources into shooting Stories, and now can create product or campaign specific collections.

Instagram took off two significant updates for all Instagram profiles - Stories Archive and Stories Highlights. Now, the company is adding a new feature that will add your expired stories to a private archive. Insta users can now post a story and not worry about having to download it if they want to view it after the 24-hour mark. As we said, these archives are where you will find the stories that you will use for your Stories Highlights. Just yesterday we brought you a story about how users can now import their Instagram contacts to Messenger.

Only you will be able to see any of saved Instagram Stories, but with the new Stories Highlights feature, you can also choose to show some of them off to anyone.

From there, you can re-live your favourite stories (#memories). Instagram won't begin saving stories until that notification appears, and it will also offer a link to opt out.

To access it, users can now tap the archive icon on their profiles in the top-right corner. The archive feature is created to automatically save your stories once it expires after 24 hours. So like if you have some recent pictures of a event you attended, you would save them to your profile under "The wedding event".

And earlier in the year, Instagram reportedly tested a favorite-friends feature which allows you to share content with a select group of friends.
