Facebook working on “Expiry” of your posts


Snapchat launched Snapchat Stories, its 24-hour update collation tool, in October 2013. Now Facebook is incorporating a lesson learned by Instagram, revealing its own timeline-topping Facebook Stories feature.

Video and images shared through Facebook Stories on iOS and Android versions of the Facebook app remain available for 24 hours before disappearing.

In that regard, it works just like Instagram Stories have done since August 2016, and Snapchat Stories since the temporal messaging service launched its own twist on timeline equivalency in 2013.

Facebook has already launched photo filters and other geo location-sensitive filters, one more feature Snapchat is known for.

Instagram was purchased by Facebook in 2012.

The emphemorality of Facebook Stories is another factor encouraging users to check their Facebook timelines on a frequent basis; positioning the tool at the top of the Facebook app emphasises the seriousness with which Facebook is taking Snapchat’s challenge.
