You can cross-post Instagram Stories to Facebook

When the gargantuan social network launched Facebook Stories - essentially the same feature as Instagram Stories, which is essentially the same feature as Snapchat Stories - everyone said "meh".

As TechCrunch first reported, Facebook tested this feature in Portugal last month and is now rolling it out for everyone.

In a further attempt, that may be a success this time, Instagram has added a button that allows you to easily share your Instagram Story post to your Facebook Story at the same time. "We're always working to make it easier to share any moment with the people who matter to you" as told by a Facebook spokesperson.

However, the tie-in could help Facebook enormously.

Instagram's aim is to offer a fun, interactive tool that lets users ask friends and followers simple questions-about what they should wear, for example ("Should I wear this dress or these jeans?") or what to eat ("Should I finish this leftover pizza or cook some pasta?"). But its safe to say that this feature might be included in future updates.

Facebook Stories was not that well received by users.

Critics have largely called it a failure, and user ship has been so low that in April the company began displaying grayed-out icons in the Stories section of the app to make it seem less empty.

Despite it having pride of place at the top of the News Feed, most Facebook users are ignoring it, possibly because the Facebook Camera is still relatively new and unfamiliar.

Critics are saying the same about the move to cross post Instagram Stories to Facebook.
