Facebook and Messenger will now share the same Stories

The fused experience is now simply called "Stories", and any photo, video or slideshow you upload appear both on Facebook itself and the Messenger app. While Instagram's Stories feature is doing quite well, Facebook's has struggled to attract users.

Capitalising on the shortfalls of Snapchat Stories, Facebook aims to enable greater interaction across the app, thereby creating sharing opportunities for its users form different demographics and encourage original content sharing, rather than generic link sharing.

Facebook is also working on shutting off its Facebook Direct feature for the personal brief texting. You'll be able to post a Story to either Messenger or Facebook and your Facebook friends and the people you chat with on Messenger will be able to see that Story. Someone in the company must have realized that, because it's making things just a bit less puzzling by merging Facebook Stories and Messenger Day.

Social media giant Facebook announced the roll-out of a consolidated stories feature for all those part of the "events" and "groups" pages on the platform.

Facebook has eliminated its Messenger Day feature, a Snapchat clone that isn't even a year old yet. However, Stories from those spots won't be available in Messenger. Having separate versions for Facebook and Messenger made no sense anyway and might be one of the reasons why they're nowhere near as successful as their counterpart on Instagram.

So what does this mean for us? This feature would allow people to jointly contribute to one single story for any event, under the supervision of the event's admin. "Anyone who is interested in or attending that event will be able to contribute to the Story of what's going on with that event in real time".

Finally, Facebook is also launching a new collaborative Facebook Stories for Groups and Events. The company recently took steps to address that by adding the ability to cross-post Instagram Stories to Facebook Stories.
