For those who are not interested in combining work with play, it’s designed to suit your preference too. You choose where you want your stories to be shared, it’s totally up to you.
As illustrated in the above photo, users are signaled to share their stories to “. . . their personal or their Business Page's Stories.”
This is directed towards encouraging more story sharing, especially for users who manage a page, they’re making story sharing feel like a breeze.
Getting older users interested in this new development seems to be at the top of the to-do-list.
Social Media Today put it this way “. . . the trick, it seems now, is for Facebook to get older users on-board with the option, in order to truly bring Stories adoption into the spotlight.”
Additionally, users running business accounts are going to benefit. Social media today said ". . . with brands constantly struggling to come up with relevant content, it could be a help."
Facebook places a ton of value on stories, and have even labelled it the future of social sharing. Sounds like there are more updates to come don't you think?
Let’s look back at one of the most recent updates we covered. Does an announcement about opening up AR effects creation to all Instagram users ring a bell?
Their swiftness to follow up with another update on the same feature category is probably a sign that Facebook has put Stories on their priority list!
After combining Facebook and Messenger Stories features, the results have been promising - 500million daily users.’ Can we blame them for getting on top of this?
Overall, Stories sharing on Facebook is growing at such a rapid pace. Do you agree it’s the future of social sharing?
