This was followed by Instagram confirming that this feature is now being tested.

Since the feature has seen failure on the largest social network and so the Menlo Park company is going to show its users Stories from Instagram. Fifty-five percent of Americans 50 and older say they've gotten news from social media, up from 45 percent (older people are also driving the increasing percentage of people who get news via mobile).

The Stories feature, which is a copy of the Snapchat feature, was added to Instagram in August 2016.

Zuckerberg & Co. have embedded Stories into pretty much every Facebook app, including Messenger and WhatsApp. According to a report in TheNextWeb, the new comment bubbles are available for a small fraction of users as of now and it is unclear at this point whether the feature will make it to a wider rollout.

The court further ordered Kenya's Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to conduct fresh polls within 60 days. The disputed 2007 election led to politically-motivated ethnic violence in which over 1,100 people were killed.

Instagram's stories has a key placement within the app, appearing in a separate bar above normal posts. "We have no other plans to share at this time". Instagram, after all, is all about glossy, magazine-like photos and sharing experiences, while Facebook's main app is a bit more akin to a traditional high school yearbook.

However it seems that Facebook is still trying to make Stories on its platform happen.

Over a year after Facebook said it would extend its Canvas ad format to Instagram, the photo-and-video app has started testing Canvas ads within people's Stories feeds, an Instagram spokesperson confirmed. The company has yet to reveal any usage stats for Facebook Stories, and a spokesperson again declined to do so when asked by Business Insider on Wednesday.
