Social media companies Facebook are currently testing their platform posting feature by bringing Instagram Stories to Facebook.
Only a few users have access to the feature, which is currently in beta. Facebook explains to users how their followers could now see their Instagram stories on Facebook.
Apparently, the platform setting can be changed in the system. However, it is currently limited to viewing Instagram content on Facebook, but not for non-followers on Instagram. When it comes to looks, FB stories will have a blue circle, while Instagrams will have orange and pink circles.
Facebook repeats that when it comes to who can see your Instagram stories, nothing has changed. The company emphasizes that the feature gives people who are connected to Instagram a way to see both content on one platform.
The cross-platform posting is in an experimental phase and will collect data from users. It can eventually end up as a permanent feature if the feedback is positive.
