Facebook brings support for collaborative Stories to Events & Groups

So, now the twenty-four-hour short-lived stories would be appearing in both the Messenger and Facebook app, and if viewed in either one of the apps then it would not be showing unviewed in the other app.

Facebook first swiped the Snapchat feature with Instagram Stories, giving users on that service a way to publish content that is contained in an area accessible via a bubble.

Facebook Stories is getting quite the revamp today.

That's not all, along with the new changes, Facebook is also killing off its Facebook Direct disappearing message feature. You can make your post public, visible to both Facebook and Messenger friends or visible to Facebook friends only.

I think it's only a matter of time before Facebook gives users the option to sync Stories across Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and maybe even WhatsApp. It's also withdrawing the Facebook Direct messaging feature in favour of handling Stories replies and messages via Messenger, the report suggests.

The changes to Facebook Stories comes at a critical point for the company: Snapchat is expected to unveil a major overhaul of its app sometime soon to make the design a lot less confusing, and there's a decent chance of Snap succeeding at bringing its dying chatting app back to life. As per him some individuals already were of the belief that the stories are connected, and we thought it would make sense. While users of Facebook's low-data-usage version can view stories, they cannot contribute at present. However, Stories from those spots won't be available in Messenger. The new feature allows members to contribute Stories that can only be viewed by the members of the group or event, a flawless feature for private functions such as parties, and weddings. Just a month ago, the company started testing a useful tool that allows you to cross-post Stories from Instagram to Facebook. People will see stories on their Event and Group pages, as well as atop their News Feed.
