In fact, Instagram is already testing a feature that lets users cross-post their Instagram Stories to Facebook Stories - and with Facebook Stories now syncing with Messenger, your day can now be shared across all of your social networks. Along with this change, Facebook is also killing private ephemeral messaging feature Direct. All replies from Stories (via Facebook and via Messenger), and Facebook Camera messages will be sent through Messenger instead.

The Stories feature is also now available in the simplified Facebook Lite app for people without access to high-speed internet service.
