Facebook is gradually activating the possibility of sharing Instagram stories directly on Facebook and at the same time, consolidating de facto the ephemeral functions of both platforms.
You can share your stories on Instagram and Facebook at once
It was one of the most recurring requests since both social networks activated the option to publish stories: since both belong to the same company and share functionality, why not share the stories at once from a single application? Now the company has activated this functionality in Instagram so that when you publish something is published directly on Facebook, as was so far with the photos.
The function, which depending on your operating system is a bit more hidden, allows you to share at the same time, with the same time and with exact content, both Facebook and Instagram, allowing us to save a few steps when we want to upload something directly to the two networks social. That, for the moment only works in the Instagram direction to Facebook and not vice versa, but it is expected to be universal as both networks consolidate their functions.
If you want to use this function in iOS you only have to have your Facebook account linked and when publishing a story will offer you the option to mark the possibility of publishing also on Facebook, allowing to change this behavior with each publication, something ideal when we do not want saturate both networks with the same content. Of course, it is disabled by default. However, do not give yourself much illusions right now, since the option is not yet activated, although it is expected to do so soon.
In Android you will be able to activate this function within the settings of the stories of Instagram, in the section of shared content, reason why neither is a complicated question.
This feature of sharing both Instagram and Facebook takes in tests just over a month in Portugal, but it has now been when some users have started to appear, and although there is still an official announcement of the arrival for everyone on Instagram, is expected to be available universally soon. Android users, on the other hand, can already enjoy it mostly.
