Facebook will soon have a new wall where posts and Stories will be merged. What will the social network's new feed look like? Find out now!
Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp are not only the most famous and used applications in the world, but also sister apps, daughters of one and only powerful father, one of the most powerful entrepreneurs in the world: Mark Zuckerberg. Each of these tools has its own peculiarities, but they share some important functions. Among them is the ability to publish posts and temporary content.
Stories are among the most beloved features of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp (although in the latter they take the name of Status). Unfortunately, however, currently a user to share their temporary content must upload it to each app separately and to view the Stories you need to tap in a special section. This relegates these posts to a secondary position. Mark Zuckerberg wants to integrate them into an immersive and unique user experience. And to achieve this goal, he is willing to completely revolutionize the graphic aspect of Facebook.
The news feed of the social network is destined to change profoundly. This is what emerges following several rumors, published on various newspapers including TechCrunch. The researcher Jane Mancun Wong, who often collaborates with the online magazine, revealed that very soon we will see the interface of Facebook completely changed. The feed will no longer be consulted by scrolling down with the finger, but we will start using swipes to better view the content of contacts, but also of pages and groups. In addition, posts in the feed will be merged with Stories, so that the latter type of content will increase its visibility. In the new bulletin board, to view and look in detail at a post you'll need to hold it down with your finger. In short, they will work just like the Stories available now on Instagram. For example, if they are not blocked, they will follow one after the other and will be alternated with advertisements of various kinds.
Mark Zuckerberg's company has always bet on temporary posts - in fact, the Stories can be viewed for a maximum of 24 hours - and wanted to include them in all social and messaging app.
When will the Stories and Facebook posts be merged?
Temporary content has huge potential for ad revenue, and Mark Zuckerberg wants to make the most of it. Probably in the near future, Stories will take up a larger portion of space than traditional content. But this is yet to be seen.
For the moment, the development of the new Facebook feed is still in an embryonic state and we don't even know if it will see the light: in fact, the new interface is in the works and will also have to pass tests.
