Facebook Stories: Another Snapchat-like Upgrade Parading the Social Media Block

A lot of us woke up to a new Facebook this morning. The popular social networking platform rolled out a new feature that may not be so ‘new’ to us after all. ‘Facebook Stories’ is the latest Snapchat-like adaptation rolled out by the social network on its official application. Even if you’ve never been a Snapchat user, there are high chances that you are still familiar with the feature. A lot of other services owned by Facebook have this feature like Instagram, Whatsapp, and FB Messenger.

Facebook Stories might probably have a slightly different look as compared to other applications flaunting the same feature. If you haven’t yet seen this option right above your status bar then that’s because not everyone has it yet, but very soon they will.

A major difference between the stories featured by Facebook and other apps is that, the latter lets you add filters/emoji’s after you have taken a picture or a video. Meanwhile, Facebook Stories lets you add the animated filters before you record videos or click pictures. Comparatively, a larger variety of filters and skins are provided in the Facebook update that you may not get in Snapchat. On the contrary, you cannot add emoji or stickers on your story afterwards, but only add text or scribble on them. Here is a glance at some of the features in Facebook Stories:

  • Videos can be of 20 seconds’ duration
  • Save stories to your camera’s roll
  • ‘Direct’ stories can be replayed
  • Choose your audience with privacy options
  • See who has seen your stories

Officially, the Stories feature by Facebook was made available from the March 28, but not to everyone at the same time. In order to perform a cross check, log off your application and probably when you log back in, the application may have updated to the upgrade. Still not seeing the update on your feed may just be a sign that you have to wait a little more than others until the feature is updated on your device.
