Share

Facebook has introduced "Stories" feature on all its platforms including Instagram, Messenger, WhatsApp and Facebook mobile.

Facebook has started to test its Stories feature on the desktop version of the social networking site, an indication that the Menlo Park, California-based company is planning to roll out the tool to desktop users in a final release soon, according to a report from TechCrunch. Are you excited to see Stories on the desktop?

After rolling out stories to Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook app, now the company is testing stories on the Facebook website. This feature was taken from Snapchat and it allows users to share photos or videos that disappear after a day.

The company chose to bring Stories to Facebook, after seeing its success on Instagram, where Stories had debuted in summer 2016. I know I definitely don't use it, but who knows, maybe Facebook can tap into some sort of niche group. Instagram recently released a press release where they shared a little insight into how often millennials use Instagram on a daily basis, and the numbers are wild.

Users under the age of 25 now spend more than 32 minutes a day on the platform, while users age 25 and older are on it for more than 24 minutes. Those lucky folks will see a "Stories" section on the top-right corner of their News Feed on the desktop version of Facebook.
