When social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram came, people got the opportunity of connecting. They could share their feelings and memories with their followers, and many friends and loved ones who had lost contact reconnected; thanks to these beautiful platforms. Now that KakaoStory has come to join the list, people can now share photos. Beyond that, users can creatively apply different stickers, effects, and filters to what they share on their pages, among other things.
KakaoStory was launched on the 22nd of March, 2012, as a photo-based social networking site. It enabled users to share photos through their mobile devices. However, after most of the users of KakaoTalk, its sister company, started using the social platform, the service was reviewed and upgraded.
Consequently, users gained the opportunity of posting different things of choice on their page. Interestingly, the social medium became so popular among South Koreans to the level that users became more active on it than the popular Facebook at some point.
How to create KakaoStory account
To use this social platform, the first step in the process is to have a Kakao account. The account works like an email, and with it, successfully registered users can access other Kakao-partnering services.
However, to access the service, the user must either have an existing and functioning email account or be ready to open a new one. Once the users are on the official page, they will be asked to choose between the two options.
Before a person is allowed to create an account, a few questions would be asked, including if the intending user is more than 14 years old. Also, they need to agree to specific terms and conditions.
Then, whether or not to subscribe to marketing messages and Kakao Alerts will be decided by individuals. Bear in mind that these options are also available to those who already have a functioning email account.
How to use KakaoStory
After the upgrade of KakaoStory, a few more exciting features were added. Specifically, users got the opportunity of using images from their KakaoStory accounts as background images on KakaoTalk.
Anyone using the social platform can find and connect with friends that they are already connected with on KakaoTalk. This works once a person sends a request, and it is accepted.
With that, connected users have the privilege of viewing and commenting on the KakaoStory posts of themselves. Another way through which the platform works is that any user who makes his or her account public will be able to chat with unknown KakaoStory users.
When any user within a network of members posts texts and pictures, other members can view and comment on such posts with either text or five emotion stickers.
Besides, a user can check a summary of updates from friends, including their pictures, total comments, and excerpts of contents from the Feed page in descending other.
From the MyStory page, posts of users in an updated format are displayed in a four-column table alongside the pictures on the posts, except a post does not contain any image.
A beautiful feature on the app is its ability to capture videos for 15 seconds. Whether an individual uses an iOS or Android device, once they tap and hold the camcorder icon, they can take shots.
Likewise, they can release their fingers to cut to another angle and KakaoStory will suspend the video in between the shots.
How to find friends on KakaoStory
You can easily search for friends using the app's search window. However, one of the easiest ways of connecting new friends is using their Story ID. To do this, simply enter the Story ID of the person you want to connect with in the KakaoStory search window before pressing the Search ID option.
Then, if you want to find anybody among the list of friends that you already have, go to "MyStory" and then click on "Friends." After that, click on "Following," and you will be able to see the list of friends that you are following.
