Facebook is killing Messenger Day and consolidating it with Facebook Stories

3D Snapchat Cube

By the looks of it, Facebook seems to be focusing quite a bit on the Stories section, which is doing well on its photo-sharing app, Instagram. The company now has a Snapchat Stories clone for WhatsApp, Messenger, and its core social network. Just a month ago, the company started testing a useful tool that allows you to cross-post Stories from Instagram to Facebook.

They'll be able to post while inside Events and Groups, or get the option to share there on the Facebook Stories share sheet. Stories are now one experience across every Facebook-related product - and as a result, you can also say hello to some very helpful new features, namely the fact that Stories can now live in Events, Groups, and Pages and not just on your own personal profile - opening up a whole new world of possibilities. You can make your post public, visible to both Facebook and Messenger friends or visible to Facebook friends only.

As per the reports of yesterday, Facebook stories are being renovated.

Firstly, the Messenger Day feature has been shelved and its functionality merged with Facebook Stories. Having separate versions for Facebook and Messenger made no sense anyway and might be one of the reasons why they're nowhere near as successful as their counterpart on Instagram. Along with this change, Facebook is also killing private ephemeral messaging feature Direct.

Support for Facebook Stories in Groups and Events means that users can contribute relevant content in the form of videos and images, with the Story being moderated by the Group/Event administrators.

Paulina Bozek-Product Manager-Messenger said that Facebook has taken the initiative for this change as per the user response who prefer to have their story replies within the Messenger.

As it continues to try to grow its Snapchat competitor, Facebook today announced that it is launching support for Stories in Groups and Events. This feature would allow people to jointly contribute to one single story for any event, under the supervision of the event's admin.
