Facebook Stories adds group chat and reactions

Facebook

Facebook is trying to get more people to interact with their Stories feature in their main app. 

The social network announced on Wednesday a couple of new features for its service, which allows people to post a series of photos and videos that disappear automatically after 24 hours. 

Now, if you respond to a Story, you can add other people to your answer, which will create a new group chain in Facebook Messenger, the chat app of the social network. So, you can see if you have an answer in Messenger to your Story without having to leave the Story itself. 

Facebook is also adding the ability for people to respond with stickers and reactions like the like , love and sad buttons that you usually see on Facebook. 

But Facebook Stories has not fared so well. In May, the company said that the function had 50 million users. The company said at the time that it was going to start testing ads at the show in the United States, Mexico and Brazil ; Ads of 5 to 15 seconds in length that you can skip.
