Finally, Facebook is ready to launch it globally and it is known as ‘Facebook Group Stories’. This arrival was announced by Facebook on 4th December 2018, and is now available for Facebook users world wide.
What is Facebook Group Stories?
It’s a feature that allows members of a Facebook group to contribute to a collaborative story. This expansion will also allow the group members to share the story of that group as well. Then the story will be displayed with the Group name as well as with the name of the individual user creating the post. But not all the groups will have this group stories option. Facebook says Group admin can choose a setting that limits sharing to admin members only, instead of every Group member. Group admins can also use new tools to approve or delete Stories contributions from members before they go live.
