      Instagram countdown sticker is now available inside INstagram stories and it's a great way to get your friends and followers excited about an upcoming event.

      It's a great personal and business tool for instagram. I'm going to use it for www.festivault.tv to show a countdown to the next film festival. If you don't see it, update your instagram app and then wait. Sometimes, Instagram takes a few days to roll out a new option to all users.
