Facebook is killing Messenger Day and consolidating it with Facebook Stories

Facebook is killing Messenger Day and consolidating it with Facebook Stories

Across its four main properties — Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp — Facebook had a Stories feature within all of them, independent of each other.

A feature similar to that of Snapchat Stories, Facebook revealed that those on various groups and events pages will be able to contribute to a Facebook Story that's visible to the rest of the members and moderated by the admins.

Connor Hayes-Product Manager-Facebook, while talking to the representatives of TechCrunch informed that the stories are being consolidated to make it much simpler for people to share stories across various applications.

Facebook is available on the Play Store, though this feature still appears to be rolling out so it may take a bit to hit your account. Stories are now one experience across every Facebook-related product - and as a result, you can also say hello to some very helpful new features, namely the fact that Stories can now live in Events, Groups, and Pages and not just on your own personal profile - opening up a whole new world of possibilities. "All you have to do is select from one of these audience settings on either Facebook or Messenger, and any changes you make from your existing audience settings will update across the other". If none of those sounds ideal, you can either make a custom list or hide Stories from specific people on both platforms.

Judge unanimous pick as AL Rookie of the Year
That comes after a brief 2016 Major League Baseball debut in which Judge struck out 42 times in 84 at-bats. Judge had to win a spring training competition with Aaron Hicks just to earn his starting spot.

As per the reports of yesterday, Facebook stories are being renovated. This means presently there will not be a disappearing messaging feature on Facebook, as Facebook Direct used to delete videos and photos after they were viewed and are no more in active conversations.

"Give multiple people the opportunity to tell a story from multiple different angles".

Finally, Facebook is also launching a new collaborative Facebook Stories for Groups and Events. This feature would allow people to jointly contribute to one single story for any event, under the supervision of the event's admin.
