Facebook Stories

Facebook stories are the collection of photos or short videos from the past day. They will automatically disappear after 24 hours. It’s different from the videos and photos you share in your Newsfeed. You can also apply filters to the image and videos. This feature is same as the feature in Snapchat.

How to create Facebook stories?

To create a Facebook story, you just simply need to press the new camera button located on the top left side of the Facebook application. For making videos, you need to hold down the big button and click it once for an image. You can also add graphics, drawings, animations and text with the help of magic wand option. Once you’re done, press the big arrow, choose “Your Story” from the contacts list or add to your timeline and click on the send button to share your stories.

You can also add photos or videos from your phone Gallery by pressing the picture icon located in the bottom-right of the screen. This will display you your recent files, just click on that one which you want and then you can move further and add filters or text you want.

How to use Filters, text and emojis?

Same as in Instagram, if you want to add a filter on emoji, then you need to click the magic wand option to view a variety of filters which you can apply to your image. You can apply these before and after, but filters work best when applied at the beginning of the video recording.

If you want to add a border, you just simply swipe up and choose the border you want.

You can only add your text after you have taken your photo or filmed your video. Just click on the”Aa” symbol and begin typing your text. You can also choose different colours for your text. After entering the text, press Done button and then you can drag the text to the position you want.

How to see other People’s Facebook stories?

To view other people’s Facebook stories, check the top of your Facebook app. There you will see the collection of circles of your friends who’ve already posted their stories on Facebook. Just click on it to view. To learn more about this new feature of facebook, just visit the Facebook help page.
