Facebook copies Snapchat Stories (again)-- but why?

Facebook copies Snapchat Stories (again)-- but why?”

Having already rolled out Stories clones to Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger over the last seven or so months, Facebook has completed the full set by introducing Stories its main app.

Users can share the photos and videos they capture using the app's new camera experience and assemble them into a collection using Facebook's new Stories feature.

Facebook will be partnering with upcoming movies for pop culture-themed filters, like a Wonder Woman headpiece and a Power Rangers suit.

Bears player calls Hernandez 'my guy' at double-murder trial
He said everyone else appeared "normal" and he didn't recall any discussions about Bradley's whereabouts. Prosecutors say Hernandez shot Bradley because, as a witness to the Boston shooting, he knew too much.

Facebook's spin on Snapchat-style photo sharing officially launched Tuesday with a fancy new camera packed with photo effects and function. To access the new feature, tap on the "Your Story" icon in Stories bar located at the top of News Feed. Once the receiver views the content, it is removed by Direct after the conversation is over.

Instagram Stories has proven extremely popular since its arrival a year ago, and Mark Zuckerberg won't mind that all of his company's apps are based around the same core feature, as long as Facebook Stories opens up new revenue opportunities.

Snapchat pioneered the camera-first sharing and is wildly popular with younger users.

This modification indicates for the fourth time that Facebook has copied basic Snapchat features like photo and video montages that disappear in 24 hours. So, you're essentially able to send snaps through Facebook now. These would appear on their homepage and can be seen by their friends and followers for a period of 24 hours before disappearing from the timeline and the app by itself.

Facebook app for iOS and Android will now have a camera icon on the top left starting this week, one that will allow users to take pictures or videos and superimpose them with masks, filters and frames. Facebook proper has now released a new feature in its mobile apps today which enables users to send messages and content that disappears automatically after some time.
