“Alternately, when someone nominates you for a challenge, you’ll receive a direct message (DM) saying your friend mentioned you in their story,” the Facebook-owned app said.

“After you tap into their story where you’re nominated, you can tap “Try This Challenge” to open the camera with a “Nominated by” challenge sticker. You can then share this to your own story and your nominator will be tagged in your story,” the company added.
