Snapchat-Facebook Merger Would Permit Story Sharing on Other Apps

The redesigned app will be rolled out to users alongside the Story sharing update

The feature will be available immediately to Snapchatters with the new, redesigned version of the app.

This can be done using a share link generated in-app, and can be passed around other messaging platforms, internet forums, and other social networks easily. Well, now the developers behind the app are adding a share button to Stories in the Discover section with a goal of making "Stories" available outside the app for the first time and kick-starting the app's stagnant user growth.

People who don't use or have never used Snapchat will be able to see certain stories from the app thanks to a new update that was rolled out on Tuesday.

At launch, the feature is limited to Official Stories, Our Stories and Search Stories.

According to Mashable, the stories shared on Snapchat last for about twenty-four hours' time and vanishes after the set time, however, the external links of the original stories would remain for a longer duration or time spans until the user decides to delete them or erase them.




Sharing will also be initially restricted to three types of Stories - Official Stories, Search Stories, and Our Stories.

Then, they can copy that link and share it over text, email, or to another social network like Facebook or Twitter, for example.

. It could mean that media outlets etc could essentially embed snapchat stories much like Facebook or Twitter posts.

Nearly all social media apps have made a decision to take next level in Stories feature. Snap says that, similar to the situation on mobile, Our Stories will be available on the web for up to 30 days before disappearing. Better take care with those stories from now on people, make sure they're not set to public before you get caught doing something you'll regret forever.

Our Stories relate to specific events such as music festivals and are hand curated. Users will be able to view the clip for up to 30 days.

Search Stories are another way to discover user generated Snaps on Snapchat. Anyone can see what's happening on Snapchat, at least from publicly shared snaps.
