Facebook has already added a camera feature called Stories to its WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger apps and was reported to be testing it earlier this year.

Facebook launched ephemeral stories and messaging on its mobile apps on Tuesday, copying a wildly successful Snapchat feature. "Photos or videos from end-users" stories can be viewed by friends for 24 hours, and stories won't appear on their Timeline or in News Feed unless end-users post them there. But now you can see it on the Facebook app, but not on your News Feed thank god. From this point, they can capture photos and videos, add effects and drawings and share their story with friends to provide them a glimpse of what they're up to. Once the conversation on the story ends, the conversation will no longer be visible in Direct.
All of these features begin rolling out today only to the Facebook app. Your friends can view photos or videos from your story for 24 hours.
