Snapchat was the first to introduce stories feature but after it Instagram, WhatsApp, and Facebook also made it. Facebook redesigned its “Timeline” look, a few years back further Facebook also made short videos to enjoy your social media life and it was an inspiration for Snapchat. The CEO Evan Spiegel wrote in its IPO announcement that “We learned that creativity can be suppressed by the fear of permanence.” Now Facebook Stories are packed with some more interesting features.
The concept of stories was not long lasting, stories mostly disappear after 24 hours. Now the company is testing the new testing Stories Highlights, the company confirmed to TechCrunch. It will be similar to Instagram stories highlights, you can pick your favorite expired photos and videos, compile them into themed collections with titles and cover images and display them on your profile.
Make Facebook Stories and Save it for a lifetime
Facebook Stories will be different from snapchat stories because in Facebook you can pick any photo or we can make any colorful theme collection. It depends what genre of your pictures are plus Facebook has 150 million daily users so we can assume that how much people love to spend time on Facebook.
The Facebook Stories were firstly introduced by TechCrunch tipster Jane Manchun Wong who showed the stories features with the screenshots. TechCrunch further told us about this feature and a spokesperson said that: “People have told us they want a way to highlight and save the Stories that matter most to them. We’ll soon start testing highlights on Facebook – a way to choose Stories to stay on your profile, making it easier to express who you are through memories.”
These Facebook Stories will appear on a horizontal scroll bar on your profile and we can see how many people have actually viewed it. You can make it viewable by all your friends or you can restrict the list. We can also make some specific audience or we can make groups. This highlighted feature will be useful for public figures trying to build an audience or for that audience who thinks their identity is better revealed through their commentary on the world that Stories’ creative tools offer, opposed to some canned selfies and profile pics.
