Here’s how Facebook describes the site
Welcome to Facebook Stories, a new site dedicated to sharing the extraordinary, quirky and thought-provoking stories and ideas from the more than 950 million people around the world who make up Facebook’s community.
ABCNews reports on how the project started
“The project started as a result of our seeing a number of stories coming into the company from different channels, including stories we would read about in the media,” Tucker Bounds, a Facebook spokesperson, told ABC News. “We wanted to create a place where we could celebrate great stories.”
So how does one get involved? Well you submit your story and then Facebook makes the call as to who will be featured. It’s that easy in one sense but as more people learn of this way to feed their own egos this may be a cluttered space in a hurry. But hey, if you truly have something unique to share with people then why not find a way to get the story out there, right.
Want to get your story ‘found’? Just submit your story and away you go!
But that’s not all! Each month Facebook will produce an infographic based on the theme it has chosen. Take a look.
Are you interested in Facebook Stories? Or is there already enough going on that having another thing to pay attention to simply isn’t worth it?
