Facebook is testing an option that allows cross-posting Stories from Facebook to Instagram.
Now being active on both platforms, as well as sharing your content with a wider audience is about to become easier.
You will see a toggle for the new option in your Story Privacy settings. Although we recommend using it carefully. Because two platforms have different formatting and additional features will not look the same on both platforms.
Facebook has stated that Stories are about to take the place of News feed becoming the main source of updates and instrument for social sharing and especially appealing to younger audiences. That can explain The Social Network’s interest in further developing, upgrading, and expanding the format. Other platforms with Twitter among them are rolling out their own take on Stories which only highlights its relevance and future potential.
