Facebook Is Making Changes to Stories after Slow User Adoption

Facebook started adding the Stories feature to its suite of apps, including WhatsApp and Instagram, last year. With this new feature, members of a specific Facebook Group or Event will be able to contribute to a Story that's visible to the rest of the members...

Now Stories shared on Facebook can be posted to Messenger and vice versa.

"They'll be able to post while inside Events and Groups, or get the option to share there on the Facebook Stories share sheet", said Connor Hayes, Facebook's product manager, as quoted by TechCrunch.

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. 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. When you attend a concert, for example, you can share your video or photo, creating a series of images and videos contributed by all who attended the event.
