Why should Snapchat have all the fun? After Instagram has copied the ideas of stories and named as Instagram stories from snapchat, Facebook is asking the same question and Facebook is all busy testing Snapchat stories like featured and only calling them as Facebook stories. Facebook is taking a huge step to crush down the popular social app Snapchat.
This feature of Facebook Stories is launched in Ireland only according to the spokesperson of the Irish independent. The Facebook stories look pretty much alike like the Instagram stories which have been initiated in August 2016, and Facebook stories are soon to be launched for the rest of the world. With this new feature of Facebook stories, users will be able to capture photos, videos and share them through their iPhone and Android FB apps which will appear on the horizontal bar of the newsfeed. The good thing about this feature is that it won’t appear on the main timeline and disappear in 24 hours.
Why is Facebook copying Instagram who has copied Snapchat feature? Because Instagram is popular social media and has a feature where Facebook lacks behind. Since Instagram has taken the story format, almost ten crore users view Instagram stories. With such huge numbers in play, it’s only Facebook to replicate the feature and keep itself relevant, especially among mobile users and Facebook Stories is going to be a mobile app feature only for now.
