Instagram Stories Can Now be Cross-Posted on Facebook

Instagram Stories Can Now be Cross-Posted on Facebook

The new feature allows you to add a two-answer poll on top of your Stories that your friends and followers can answer with a tap, just like adding the location sticker.

"You now have the option to share your Instagram Stories to your Facebook Stories. We are always working to make it easier to share any moment with the people who matter to you", a Facebook spokesperson told the publication.

However, the tie-in could help Facebook enormously.

TechCrunch says the cross-platform Story sharing option should come to everyone soon, but it's now only created to work in one direction: from Instagram to Facebook.

Facebook and Instagram have tied their platforms closer together, in a setup that will satisfy heavy social media sharers. Like other Instagram Stories, polls disappear after 24 hours.

"You now have the option to share your Instagram Stories to your Facebook Stories". After all, no one uses Facebook Story. Check that, and it will be automatically cross-posted to Facebook Stories ...

You will then see an option that allows you to switch on the "Shre your story to Instagram" option. This would actually be useful as it would save a lot of time of those users who share the same content across different platforms owned by Facebook.

The stories features, a copy of the Snapchat feature of the same name, was introduced previous year on Instagram and was rumoured to be Facebook just testing the idea for their own platform.

Scroll down until you see Story Settings then click that option.
