You can now share your Instagram Stories directly on Facebook

You Might Soon Be Able To Share Your Instagram Stories To Your Facebook Stories

While the Stories feature on Facebook failed to gain much traction with people rarely using it, it was a huge success on Instagram.

The only exception is businesses as they now do not have access to Facebook stories.

The feature was first tested in Portugal last month before TechCrunch spotted it in the USA and got confirmation from Facebook that it's coming to everyone.

But that may soon be changing because Facebook is rolling out a feature that lets you cross-post your Instagram Stories to Facebook Stories. With the color picker feature, Instagram is becoming closer to a mobile Photoshop. Users were basically given the option to syndicate Instagram Stories to Facebook Stories.

In August Facebook announced it's bringing Stories to the desktop. In the future, maybe Facebook would make it possible for users to post a Story on any one platform and share it directly on other platforms that its owns.

Facebook Stories were introduced globally in March 2017 after testing the feature in Ireland. Facebook Stories had gone off to a slow start, but this new integration should see more engagement on the relatively quiet feature of the social networking app.

Critics have largely called it a failure, and user ship has been so low that in April the company began displaying grayed-out icons in the Stories section of the app to make it seem less empty.

In any case, when this option is rolled out, it will most probably cut down the trouble of manually uploading Stories on each platform separately.
