  2. Memories. You can now find and publish a post you created one or more years ago.  You can also go back to your earlier subscriptions and post your memories of it.
  3. Widgets.  Widgets (such as ‘Countdown’, or ‘Questions’) can now be posted without pasting photos or videos.  Just select a suitable widget when creating stories, and one of the standard background options will be selected automatically.
