FB Messenger looks like Snapchat and Instagram Stories in one

So surprised to open my Facebook Messenger today with this brand new camera feature within the app where you can now post photo and video stories, like those of Snapchat and Instagram Stories. (Oops! That's not really new.)

A message from FB Messenger Team, containing instructions on how to use the new feature. It says, FB users can now customize their photos and videos.

FB Messenger boasts that you have thousands of stickers, masks and frames to choose from.

If in case you can't choose, then you can just create your own art.

If Snapchat calls it "My Story", Instagram labels it as "Your Story", Facebook meanwhile has it as "My Day", which is also viewable for 24 hours.

My celebrity friends haven't tried it yet, but here are samples from 2 of my friends.

Compare them with these sample stories from Snapchat...

Just minor differences. Using the new FB Messenger feature is like doin' Snapchat and IG stories on Facebook.

Obviously, Facebook is killing competitions, by keeping the users in their site forever. They introduced Facebook Live (to rival Youtube and Twitter's Periscope), Instant Articles (vs sites and blogs) and now the newest FB Messenger (vs Snapchat and IG). - Mykiru.ph
