3 Ways to Find Instagram Story Prompts

Instagram has a slew of features to help you interact with others and make your story viral. The ‘Add Yours’ sticker is one such trend-setting feature that lets your prompts do the rounds as others continue to add their photos to the prompt. But if you’ve run out of ideas and are looking for more Instagram story prompts, fret not. Here’s how you can find Instagram story prompts to give your stories a viral reach.

How to find Instagram Story prompts [3 ways]

There are a few ways by which you can find more Instagram prompts.

Method 1: Use the ‘Add Yours’ sticker to your story or reel

Instagram has a new ‘Add Yours’ template that lets you roll the dice and get a few AI-generated prompts that you can pin to your story. Here’s how to use it:

  1. Create a new story and tap on the Stickers icon at the top. Select Add Yours Templates.
  2. Tap on the sticker, then tap on the dice at the bottom to find suggested prompts. 
  3. Check out more prompts by tapping on the dice again. To use a prompt, simply tap on Next at the top right corner and continue with the template. To prevent others from removing the elements of your story, such as text, GIFs, etc. make sure the elements are pinned (highlighted).
  4. Craft your story to your liking and then share it with others. 

Method 2: Explore ‘Add Yours’ created by others

If you don’t want to make the first move and start a new ‘Add Yours’ prompt, you can also explore ones already created by others. Here’s how:

  1. On Instagram, tap on the search icon (magnifying glass) at the bottom. Then search for Add Yours.
  2. Check out popular Add Yours creations by others and get inspired by the prompts they’re using. 

Method 3: Search the highlights of other users

Instagram users often save their ‘Add Yours’ stories to their highlights. If a particular user has done so, you can check out their highlights and look for the ‘Add Yours’ sticker and get more prompt ideas.


Let’s consider a few commonly asked questions about finding Instagram story prompts.

Can others see who started a prompt?

Yes, others can see the ‘Started by’ credit on Instagram stories. However, if you’ve blocked their accounts, have set your profile to private, or have only shared it with your close followers, others won’t be able to see who started the prompt.

How can I add my own story to the sticker?

Simply tap on the ‘Add yours’ button when viewing a story with the Add yours sticker. 

We hope you were able to find more ideas for your Instagram story prompts. Until next time!
