We can't be sure if Instagram stickers are effecting but since Instagram releases a bunch every now and then, we get the idea that they might be effective.
During the COVID-19 outbreak Instagram along with other social media giants has been encouraging social distancing and have been making efforts to effectively play their part.
Earlier, Instagram has released a new 'Stay Home' sticker for stories in an attempt yo encourage users to social distance and stay home during the Corona outbreak.
According to Instagram:
"Today we’re launching a new “Stay Home” sticker that you can find in Stories. If you use the sticker, your photo or video will be added to a shared Instagram story where people can see how you're staying home and staying safe."
You can also view stories from everyone you are following who have used the "Stay Home" sticker together.
This is not the first time Instagram has released a cause-related sticker, and overall it is a great effort to get people to stay home.
While the Corona virus continues to grasp the world and the death toll rises because of it, many people seem to ignore precautions and go on about their lives as they normally would.
Since social media is widely used by people all over the world, even the smallest contribution in this regard can go a long way.
