Facebook is bringing “Stories” for groups and events

By : |November 14, 2017 0

Social media giant Facebook is bringing a consolidated Stories feature for those who are a part of “groups” and “events” feature on the platform. The company said that those on various groups and events pages will be able to contribute to a Facebook Story that is visible to the rest of the members and moderated by the admins.

Facebook product manager Conor Hayes told TechCrunch, “Give multiple people the opportunity to tell a story from multiple different angles. People will see stories on their Event and Group pages, as well as atop their News Feed. They’ll be able to post while inside Events and Groups, or get the option to share there on the Facebook Stories share sheet.” This new feature will allow users to collectively contribute to one Story for an event (like a birthday party or festival), with submissions moderated by the event’s admins.

To encourage people to contribute a Story, an open bubble will open up on the top of the News Feed for events happening during that time, provided the user is invited to it.

Additionally, Facebook is also launching Facebook Stories for Facebook Lite app. The Facebook Lite users can view the Stories but not contribute Stories at present. Also, Facebook is replacing the Messenger Day with Facebook Stories and syncing both cross-posting and viewing.

The TechCrunch report also notes that the company is withdrawing the Facebook Direct messaging feature in favor of handling Stories replies and messages via Messenger. Facebook is planning to allow cross-posting Instagram Stories on Facebook, but the reverse is not planned yet.
