It's A Lot Like Snapchat

I'll be honest.  I just downloaded Snapchat for the first time last week.  I did it solely because I have a new niece and I knew my sister was frustrated with the fact that I didn't have it.

So I gave in.

Today, much to my surprise, I notice that Facebook now has the same "Story" feature that you also find on Snapchat.......

If you're not familiar with Snapchat, Lifewire.com defines the snapchat story as....

......a photo or video you post to your very own stories section (or feed) of your account, which is visible by you and all your friends. Simply swipe from right to left on any tab in the Snapchat app until you see a screen tab labeled 'Stories.' Your friends' stories will appear under 'Recent Updates'

The "Story" feature appears on your Facebook Mobile App at the very top, near where you normally post a status.

The Verge, a technology news and media network operated by Vox Media, calls this new feature Facebook's "all-out assault on Snapchat."

As for me?  I don't really care.  I probably won't use it all that much anyway.  But check out the full story for yourself HERE.
