So, now the twenty-four-hour short-lived stories would be appearing in both the Messenger and Facebook app, and if viewed in either one of the apps then it would not be showing unviewed in the other app.

According to TechCrunch, there are certain smaller changes on way too along with the other changes like the new privacy setting relating the visibility of the stories and the introduction of Facebook Stories for its stripped-down application-Facebook Lite, widely famous in nations like Mexico, India, and the Philippines.

"People who use Facebook every day want Stories to be a format that works for them with the things that they're already doing and sharing on Facebook", Hayes continued.

Facebook is also working on shutting off its Facebook Direct feature for the personal brief texting. You can make your post public, visible to both Facebook and Messenger friends or visible to Facebook friends only. Facebook is merging Stories with Messenger Day, which means your day will now be synced across both the services, reports TechCrunch.

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.

The changes to Facebook Stories comes at a critical point for the company: Snapchat is expected to unveil a major overhaul of its app sometime soon to make the design a lot less confusing, and there's a decent chance of Snap succeeding at bringing its dying chatting app back to life.

Facebook has eliminated its Messenger Day feature, a Snapchat clone that isn't even a year old yet.

To make sure the new version of Stories reaches as many potential users as possible, it will be available to Groups, Events and Pages.

"Give multiple people the opportunity to tell a story from multiple different angles". Users can contribute to a Story for an event like a wedding and this will be open to the rest of the group. The company recently took steps to address that by adding the ability to cross-post Instagram Stories to Facebook Stories.
