You don't need me to tell you that your ex can't get enough of your Instagram.

It's rare they like your posts, but there's no doubt they love a good old stalk to remind them of when their life was SO much better (because they were dating you, champ).

The feature, which lets grammers post more than one image or video together as a story, lets you know who has watched it, just like Snapchat.

To do this, tap on the story and look for the eyeball image, then engage stalker mode.

Sadly, this beautiful addition is only for Stories and not ordinary posts — for now, at least.
