Just a day ago, Facebook made news when reports came in suggesting that the company shut down its AI after their machines developed a language on their own. If the research on AI wasn’t enough, the development team at Facebook is also developing a standalone VR headset, a modular phone and a smart speaker with touch screen, all being linked to inside a month. That doesn’t mean the company is trading behind on its web development front as their plan to expand their stories section to Pages and Brands.
The Snapchat inspired Stories section was unveiled earlier this year which allowed users to share day to day events packed up in videos or still images, in a move to not clutter one's timeline with posts that wouldn’t be relevant after while. Previously, users were only allowed to share stuff with their friends but the new privacy settings inside the Stories now allows anyone to watch a video or an image that you shared via the feature.
The feature is now up and running as the public sharing Stories also means you’d be able to see feeds of public figures or celebrities on your profile. To change your privacy settings to do the same, follow the instructions that are mentioned below.
- Go to Facebook app
- Look at the top bar that shows stories from your friends
- Click on '+' icon to create your story

- Click on arrow key
- Click on setting icon next to your story
- Select public from sharing setting and click save
- Click send icon at the lower bottom and your story will be shared on Facebook publicly
