“Facebook brings down the privacy wall and unlocks public sharing”
After following Instagram and Snapchat, who’s Stories features have been wildly popular, Facebook’s version of Stories does not seem to have made the cut with users.
In a move that may be aimed at firing up their Stories feature, Facebook have now given their users the option to publish their Facebook Stories, not only to their friends, but also to the general public… just like Instagram and Snapchat.
Initially, this ‘public feature’ for Stories was only available to ‘social media stars and public figures’, but can now be used by every-day Facebook users. Although Facebook tried to keep it on the down-low, a Facebook spokesperson has confirmed the official change.
How to make your Facebook Stories public:
- Click the Add To Story button – home screen
- Post a photo or video
- View the Story and tap the three dots ‘more’ button
- Open “Edit Story Settings”- change from ‘Friends’ to ‘Public’
