Meanwhile, Facebook is also launching Facebook Stories for its stripped app for the developing world, Facebook Lite.
The idea remains the same: users can post images or videos which disappear after 24-hours. Well, put quite simply: Stories are now a tool that can be used to share personal experiences with groups, events, or pages - and they allow friends, family, or individuals with similar interests to collaborate on a communal snapshot of what an event or day in the life looked like not just to one person but to many.
Now Stories shared on Facebook can be posted to Messenger and vice versa.
Capitalising on the shortfalls of Snapchat Stories, Facebook aims to enable greater interaction across the app, thereby creating sharing opportunities for its users form different demographics and encourage original content sharing, rather than generic link sharing.
