10 million people share New Year moments on Facebook Live, WhatsApp

Facebook - which owns both Instagram and Whatsapp - is testing a way for users to post Snapchat-like decorated photos, videos, and GIFs on both apps.

As far as Facebook goes, Instagram Stories is its most popular "stories" feature, eclipsing the Facebook Stories alternative though both are similar. As with any feature, it is possible Instagram won't make it available; that seems unlikely, though, considering the cross-posting work Facebook has already completed.

When Instagram users press the "add to story" button, they will see a new menu with the option to share to WhatsApp. However, much like the Instagram stories - the WhatsApp status will disappear after 24 hours.

Previously, Instagram rolls out a new feature that allows users to follow is easier to stay connected with the interests, hobbies, passions and communities the person care about.

Recently, Facebook also launched another feature, which helps you discover different photos uploaded by your friends and family who might have forgotten to tag you in the picture. The other reason could be to increase the usage of WhatsApp Status.

The first of all is to make it more functional and give more usage to Instagram Stories, and directly affecting the usage of the Snapchat product they were created to clone.

The feature that Stories deserves.

Instagram and WhatsApp are probably two of our favourite apps at the moment, and if you're a fan of them too then you're going to be pretty excited about the latest development.

Snapchat is also working on "Stories Everywhere" feature. Facebook now wants to give it a try with Whatsapp, which has a more active user base.
