Remember Facebook Stories? It’s OK if you don’t, Facebook still does, and it’s adding new features to it anyway.
Frequent Facebook reverse engineer Jane Wong has discovered new Facebook Story features embedded in the app.
The firm has added a new gif sticker, message me sicker, send selfie sticker and an interactive rating sticker.
Users can also tag other friends in Stories, as well as ‘Check-in’ to various locations using the Story feature just as they can currently do on the regular newsfeed.

Now, Facebook Stories hasn’t yet proven as popular as Instagram Stories, but there’s no denying the firm sees value in it as part of its product portfolio. The real question is whether regular users will embrace this new format, even as trust in Facebook falls across demographics.
