Facebook and Instagram Testing New Feature to Cross-Post Stories to Both Appshttps://www.theverge.com
Some Facebook users have recently noticed that they can now watch their Instagram stories right from within the main social network app. Only your Instagram followers who’ve linked their Facebook account — and who can already see your stories — will see the new option within Facebook.
You’ll know whether you’re looking at a Facebook or Instagram story based on what color encircles the profile photo; Facebook stories have blue circles, and Instagram’s have the same pink / orange hues of the app icon.
The move is yet another step in Facebook’s effort to bring its platforms closer together.
