Facebook introduces 'Stories' for groups, events segment


By combining Messenger Day - the Story-sharing function of Messenger - with the old Facebook Stories feature to create a new feature, Stories, users will be able to respond directly to your story within the Messenger app.

According to TechCrunch, there are certain smaller changes on way too along with the other changes like the new privacy setting relating the visibility of the stories and the introduction of Facebook Stories for its stripped-down application-Facebook Lite, widely famous in nations like Mexico, India, and the Philippines. Furthermore, Facebook Direct is getting the axe and all Stories replies will arrive via Messenger.

Facebook is available on the Play Store, though this feature still appears to be rolling out so it may take a bit to hit your account.

Social media giant Facebook announced the roll-out of a consolidated stories feature for all those part of the "events" and "groups" pages on the platform. Stories are now one experience across every Facebook-related product - and as a result, you can also say hello to some very helpful new features, namely the fact that Stories can now live in Events, Groups, and Pages and not just on your own personal profile - opening up a whole new world of possibilities. Having separate versions for Facebook and Messenger made no sense anyway and might be one of the reasons why they're nowhere near as successful as their counterpart on Instagram. "We're moving Stories to closer align to those connections that people have". This means that Facebook no longer has a disappearing messaging option. Users can contribute to a Story for an event like a wedding and this will be open to the rest of the group. People will see Stories on their Event and Group pages, as well as atop their News Feed. Back in August, it added the feature of making GIFs and recently it has given the option of allowing users to post their Insta stories on Facebook, simultaneously.
