Some time ago, Snapchat used to be the one and only platform which associated the word "Stories" to it until Instagram shamelessly copied the one and only feature Snapchat was selling itself on. As days went by, the feature became as common as Doritos on 4th of July after Zuckerberg and Co. flooded Facebook, Messenger, and WhatsApp with the stolen feature.
Well, we all know that Facebook Stories is not getting the limelight in the meantime, as for how many of us actually use it, right? So Instagram is trying to help its big brother with a feature that allows the Stories on the platform to be pushed to Facebook so the users don't have to switch between the platforms to suffice for their electronic social life needs. TNW's Matt Navarra pointed out the feature on Twitter.
The feature is right now working in Portugal. Facebook is keeping quiet about the feature because the company keeps its new features under test not permanent ones in the end. However, enthusiastic Instagram users are bound to like it, as it'll let them avoid the Facebook app without offending relatives. At the same time, Facebook would score extra content, so permanently adding the feature worldwide seems like a no-lose situation.
Though the feature is more innovative on Snapchat, Facebook's its wide range of apps gives it a lot more ways to introduce new features to its vast user base.
