Facebook is killing Messenger Day and consolidating it with Facebook Stories

Facebook launches collaborative Stories for Groups and Events

Someone in the company must have realized that, because it's making things just a bit less puzzling by merging Facebook Stories and Messenger Day.

As reported by TechCrunch, this feature comes as Facebook looks to draw more users to its Stories platforms.

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. By combining Messenger Day - the Story-sharing function of Messenger - with the old Facebook Stories feature to create a new feature, Stories, users will be able to respond directly to your story within the Messenger app. The company has removed the redundant direct message feature from Facebook Story as well.

"People just want an easier way to share across Facebook and Messenger, so that's why starting Monday, we're going to be connecting these two experiences". We heard from people that they would often share on Facebook or Messenger, save the photo or video, and then post to the other. "We've learned a lot since we launched Stories on Facebook in March", he said.

Despite being a blatant copy of Snapchat's Stories, Facebook has actually seen huge traction with its own version. Having separate versions for Facebook and Messenger made no sense anyway and might be one of the reasons why they're nowhere near as successful as their counterpart on Instagram.

Social media giant Facebook announced the roll-out of a consolidated stories feature for all those part of the "events" and "groups" pages on the platform.

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

Facebook is bringing a major overhaul in the Facebook Stories feature.

Finally, Facebook is also launching a new collaborative Facebook Stories for Groups and Events.
