If a stream is live, it’ll say “LIVE” (in a bright color) above your friend’s name in the Stories row. This is true for both Facebook and for Instagram. I like this because there’s no confusion. If there’s a replay of a livestream, it’ll show up as a replay button in a vivid color above your friend’s name also in the Stories row.
Stories are ALWAYS replays whether they’re a minute old or 23 hours old. And they’re of course in the Stories row, along with livestream replays and true livestreams — “One row to view them all.” It’s okay to be confused. It’s not okay to stay confused. #kidding

If so, they might think about partnering with LensCrafters, etc. I recall one tweet from LensCrafters saying they were in touch with Snap. It’s almost a year old but I put the tweet below.
We've reached out @Spectacles for their specifications & are working on a perspective
And finally, a company who knows that excess tapping leads to a bad user experience for buyers. The 3-year old company is named @Button and they’re trying to make the path to [mobile] purchase contain the fewest taps possible. Thanks Mike
