Facebook Story is a short user-generated photo or video collections which users can upload to their Facebook page. Created on March 28, 2017, Facebook Story is seen to be a second news feed for the social media website.
This feature is centered around Facebook’s in-app camera which enables users to use fun filters and snapchat-like lenses to their content and add visual geolocation tags to their photos and videos. This content can be posted publicly on the Facebook app for only 24 hours or can be sent as a direct message to a Facebook friend.
How Facebook Story Works
Facebook Story works just like Instagram Story, content shared to stories will pop up at the top of the Facebook News Feed. To view a story, you just need to simply click a friend’s circle at the top of the app. As you view a story, you can also reply with a direct message.
Difference Between Facebook Story and News Feed
The basic difference between “Facebook Story” and “News Feed” on Facebook? Is that Facebook story is just like your WhatsApp status or Instagram story which is updated for 24 hours and instantly gets deleted after that. News Feed is something which stays on your wall unless you delete it manually.
Difference Between a Facebook Story and a Facebook Post
Stories are a more personal feature on Facebook, which gives you an opportunity to make a greater connection with audiences if done right. It’s less formal than the average picture and comment that you would place in a post.
