Facebook’s desktop site is fully adopting Stories. You’ll soon be able to upload photos and videos to your Story from your Mac or Windows PC, and even record video with your webcam to post to a Story from desktop.
Facebook has made a lot of unwanted changes to the mobile app in the last few weeks; unfortunately, because they refuse to list anything new in the App Store change logs, everyone who uses Facebook gets duped into installing the changes whether they want them or not.
One of the latest unpopular additions to the Facebook app is the Snapchat-like Stories feature, which appears at the top. If you don’t like Facebook’s new Stories feature, you can use a new free jailbreak tweak called NoMoreStories by iKilledAppl3 to get rid of it once and for all.
Facebook last week rolled out a Snapchat-esque Stories feature to all users of its mobile app. So far, most users seem to be ignoring these glorified auto-vanishing slideshows so the company is introducing some visual tweaks, possibly in an effort to boost usage of the feature.
As first noticed by The Verge, friends who aren’t using Stories now appeared ghosted at the app’s top as a bit of encouragement for the new feature.
Facebook has infamously ripped off Snapchat’s Stories feature wholesale with auto-vanishing slideshows on Instagram and WhatsApp, in addition to the similar recently introduced feature on Messenger, called Messenger Day. The social networking behemoth was recently caught testing Snapchat-like Stories feature in its mobile app. According to TechCrunch, the company has now begun a staggered rollout of Facebook Stories to all users worldwide.
