Facebook tests making Stories more in your face

Facebook’s Stories might be about to get more natural with a new experimental user interface change.

The problem with Stories was two-fold. First of all, it duplicated functionality shared by other platforms more suited to the format. Crucially, these included Facebook’s own Instagram and WhatsApp messaging platforms.  Second, it breaks the flow of how users interact with Facebook.

A new feed redesign spotted by Facebook Sleuth Jane Manchin Wong indicates that the firm might be fixing that.

As shown in the screenshot below, the new feed will integrate both wall Posts and Stories naturally. Stories will no longer sit awkwardly above all other content, but will be consumed just like any other post on the news feed.

Facebook often runs various tests on its apps, and this one is a non-public one as the firm pointed out to The Verge. The firm may choose to roll it out, or more likely, it may not.  Either way, this is an interesting look at what Facebook may have planned for its users.
