Facebook begins testing Stories on the desktop

  • Facebook hands over its translation services to Artificial intelligence

Moreover, #Facebook's "Stories" feature is very much like one of Snapchat's primary features wherein users can record and upload 20 seconds of themselves via video. It lets people make ephemeral slideshows, related to specific events or themes, that disappear after a day.

On the Facebook website, Stories allow users to check stories of their friends.

Facebook initially introduced stories to Facebook app back in March this year. You can see stories at the top left side of your news feed. Perhaps due to having more space, screenshots shown by TechCrunch and others show the feature occupying the top right slot on the screen, which is a slightly less obtrusive position.

In general, more thrust is placed on most recent actions by assigning higher weights to it than those assigned to past movements. A value of 50-75 would signal a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would indicate an extremely strong trend.


The Facebook stories feature first rolled out in early 2017, starting off in Ireland before moving on to the U.S. But Facebook users haven't really taken to the feature as quickly as Instagram users have.

Although Instagram Stories have been a huge hit, WhatsApp Status - a story-like feature on the messaging service - as well as Stories feature on Facebook failed to garner much response. So maybe bringing stories to Facebook's desktop version will get people more hype about using the feature. Half of the businesses on Instagram created a story in the past month, Facebook also announced this week, and Instagram's average usage has climbed to 32 minutes per day for those under 25, and 24 minutes per day for those 25 and up, it said.
