Now share Instagram Stories to Facebook

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

Last month Instagram confirmed its testing the feature to Mashable but didn't share any other information.

When the gargantuan social network launched Facebook Stories - essentially the same feature as Instagram Stories, which is essentially the same feature as Snapchat Stories - everyone said "meh".

Facebook and Instagram have tied their platforms closer together, in a setup that will satisfy heavy social media sharers.

Instagram has added interactive polls to Stories.

However, unlike Twitter's voting polls, the Instagram user can actually see who has voted on their Stories. Facebook's own Stories feature has been slower to take off.

Facebook has been aggressively pushing Stories onto all of its platforms.

Deadly blast hits shrine in Pakistan's Balochistan
Pakistani security forces cordoned off the area and TV footage showed ambulances arriving at the scene of the blast. Health officials fear a sharp rise in the death toll since dozens of injured were said to be in critical condition.

Facebook Stories was not that well received by users.

Basically, Facebook is still trying to make Facebook stories happen, and quite like "fetch" it's never going to happen - Let it go Facebook.

The feature was eventually updated to include public sharing - a move that some reviewers said caused their engagement to skyrocket higher than engagement on typical newsfeed posts. Further, the spokesperson has also stated that the company is also considering the option to post Facebook Stories to Instagram Stories as well.

Along with a poll feature in stories, Instagram also has included a new color picker to use on text and brushes, and an alignment tool to help make your stories more attractive for your followers.

Critics are saying the same about the move to cross post Instagram Stories to Facebook.
