Instagram is testing direct 'Stories' sharing to Facebook

Steve Dent

You can mock Instagram for pilfering the Stories concept (and name) from Snapchat, but the popular feature quickly dwarfed the entire Snapchat platform. A very similar feature arrived to Facebook earlier this year, but has reportedly met with less success. That might explain why Instagram is testing an option for direct Stories sharing to Facebook, as spotted by TNW's Matt Navarra and confirmed by Techcrunch and others. It'll let die-hard Instagrammers post Stories to their granny on Facebook without the pain of doing it twice.
