Facebook is upgrading its SnapChat like stories for the groups and events. From today, the users in the largest social networking platform will be able to add a Facebook Story for Groups and Events which will be observable to the rest of the members and will be moderated by the Admins. This will be useful for those of you who are attending meetups, weddings, parties and much more.
In other words, this is more like a collaborative story wherein many people can contribute to the story like a hashtag and only the ones who are involved in the story will be able to view it.
Connor Hayes, the product manager at Facebook said,
Give multiple people the opportunity to tell a story from multiple different angles.
