Facebook is Rolling out Stories Feature to Desktop Users

According to a report in TechCrunch on Thursday, "Stories" feature on the desktop site is located on the right side, and a small question mark icon appears in the "Stories" module which explains the feature's goal, when hovered over with your cursor.

In fact, there were so few people using Stories on Facebook's mobile app, that the company in April began to display grayed-out icons of your most frequently contacted friends instead of blank spaces in the Stories feature that no one much was using. It lets people make ephemeral slideshows, related to specific events or themes, that disappear after a day.

Facebook loves stories so much, they've added it to nearly all their apps including Instagram, WhatsApp, and, more recently, Facebook.
