New Instagram test feature lets you share stories to Facebook

You've probably noticed that ever since Facebook introduced its new Facebook Stories feature (essentially a like-for-like duplicate of Instagram Stories) pretty much no one has used it. It looks like Facebook wants to ride on to the stellar growth that Instagram Stories has seen.

The move is seen as Facebook's attempt to fill up the Facebook Stories platform with added content since very few people seem to be using it. So it was only logical for the photo-sharing service to add a feature to share stories on Facebook as well. On Facebook, they'll appear as normal apart from a small "Instagram" label beneath the user's name to denote where it was originally shared.

The Instagram test, which appears to be now live in at least Portugal, was first spotted on Twitter by The Next Web's Matt Navarra.

Instagram is letting some users share their Snapchat-like 'Stories' directly to Facebook

"We are always testing ways to improve the experience on Instagram and make it easier to share any moment with the people who matter to you", an Instagram spokesperson told Business Insider. "We have no other plans to share at this time". "This is largely due to Facebook's large user base, compared with other platforms, and the fact that most of its users get news on the site", the report reads. Perhaps when the company integrated the feature into Instagram then later ported it to Facebook, Messenger, and even WhatsApp, its hope was for everyone to start using it regardless from which app.

According to a report in The Verge, this new feature will simultaneously share the image and video of the story to Instagram as well as Facebook stories.

Instagram Stories might soon make its way to Facebook.
