Facebook Messenger - Snapping at the heels

Facebook Messenger - Snapping at the heels

Rebecca Pini - Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Once again we wake up in Australia and there is a development in the Facebook realm! Facebook Messenger has changed its landscape a few times in the last couple of months and today launched Facebook Messenger stories.  A snap at the heels for Snapchat and Instagram's latest instalment of Instagram Stories.

They have called it 'Messenger Day' which allows users of the app service to link to video and photos while also at the same time, adding stickers or colouring over the photos and videos in a feed that expires in 24 hours. Exactly like Snapchat stories.

Originality is being lost in the world of social, however I always wonder who came up with the ideas first. I am forever trying to keep up with who has purchased what social platform, etc and who had what idea first.

Anyway, let's see how this takes off in the world of Facebook Messenger.  To me it looks very cluttered on my smart phone screen but I am willing to give it a go, heck I am willing to give anything on social media a go!

Check out the way it looks below and don't be afraid to use it!
