Facebook connects Messenger Day with Stories

Another update is that they have removed the Facebook Direct ephemeral messaging feature and instead, all replies to your Story will appear in your Messenger. The social networking giant is also said to enable the Stories experience for users on Facebook Groups and Events. This means that whatever content you post up on Stories will be marked as seen on Messenger if you have seen it on Facebook. TechCrunch mentions that Facebook users on Groups and Events will get the ability to contribute to a story visible to other members.

Facebook is also planning to bring the Instagram Stories to Facebook Stories and they are now testing out this feature for the users of Facebook and Instagram both.

Facebook is also working on shutting off its Facebook Direct feature for the personal brief texting.

All of this might sound confusing, but thats because it is.

If we talk about the other platforms i.e. Instagram, it has a large number of Instagram Stories users than the combine of the Facebook and Messenger users. Now, the count is down to three, which is still three too many. Facebook has announced it publicly that it is launching support for Stories in Groups and Events.

(Web Desk) - Facebook has finally merged its two separate but similar features of stories on both apps which allow giving photo or video status for 24 hours. However, this works slightly differently on Facebook to how it does on Messenger. "Now, it's quicker and easier to capture and share moments as they happen with the people you care about most".

Apart from the integration, rest of the features, such as built-in cameras and Augmented Reality-based 3D masks, remain intact. Merging the two formats is a great move, as you don't have to post the same story twice anymore. Facebook is also letting users share stories from Instagram directly to the Facebook app, but, the reverse of that isn't possible as of yet.

The Stories feature was copied from the Instagram feature. The posts will be synced so they will appear in both Facebook and Messenger apps. As per him some individuals already were of the belief that the stories are connected, and we thought it would make sense. You can select your audience from public, friends only, friends, custom list of specific people and connections.
