Social media giant Facebook has rolled massive update for its Facebook Stories feature, which it copied from Snapchat. Now the Facebook stories will be shared publically with anyone on Facebook platform. Previously one can only share Story with his/her friends.

The company said, “The ‘Public’ setting allows your ‘Followers’ to see your story, in addition to your ‘Friends.”

How to make Facebook Story public:

First post your photo or video in friends mode view then view your own published story and tap the more button option, a new window would pop up, then tap on the option named as edit Story setting. Now you will be able to change the Story setting from friends to the public. After the setting is changed your story can now be viewed by any one. You can see the names of friends who have viewed your Story and can also count other followers who have viewed your Story, but without their names.

With two billion users world wide the feature will allow the social site to grow even further, undermining Snapchat’s popularity in the process. Let’s see how Snapchat reacts to this update by Facebook.
