3. How to use sections

Organize your story content from high to low

When it comes to structure, work your way down. Go from from high level to low level elements. Always begin with a section, then add new structural components inside the section (SECTION, GRID) or types of content (TEXT, IMAGE, QUOTE etc).

Create new sections for each new topic

A new topic or a new type of content in your content structure deserves a section of its own. Any change in the type of content/subject matter should be organized in a separate section.

Start with full-width sections

Full width sections take advantage of the platforms edge-to-edge feature and allow you to use the display to its maximum size. Use these type of sections as a starting point to build out your story.

Create content specific sections

Add a section within a section to create more layers in your content. This allows you to make style changes without interfering with the settings of individual content blocks.

Content specific sections allow you to diversify content and to create engaging page layouts.

4. Creative ways of using sections

Separate your story content by using full-width sections
with color or image backgrounds.

Add sparkles to your story by using parallax backgrounds.

Add video sections for a truly dynamic experience.

Use light background sections to create separation
or add white space.
