As if we didn't already have more than enough places to document our every move, Facebook has now begun testing a new "stories" feature in its app.
Similar to Snapchat, users will be able to add photos and videos to create a personal "story" that will remain for 24 hours before disappearing into cyberspace. You will be able to add filters, text and emojis to stories and your friends will be able to tap through the story at their leisure.
This isn't the first time Facebook has mimicked something Snapchat started. Facebook-owned Instagram recently rolled out a "stories" feature on its app, where basically anyone in the Instagram community can watch your 24-hour long photo and video montage.
Your story won't show up in the News Feed or on your profile, but will live in a separate location above everything else, similar to Instagram stories. Friends can reply to other stories through a direct message.
"The way people share today is different to five or even two years ago -- it's much more visual, with more photos and videos than ever before," Facebook told USA Today. "We want to make it fast and fun for people to share creative and expressive photos and videos with whoever they want, whenever they want. We’ve been testing a new camera and the new Direct feature in Ireland since last fall, and Stories is another example of how we’re helping people share the way they want to."
The feature is currently just in Ireland, but the company plans to expand it to other countries in the coming months.
