Facebook Stories is a new feature that lets you share short, episodic updates with your friends on Facebook. You can create a story about anything that’s on your mind – from your day at work to your favorite TV show.

Adding a link to your Facebook story can help provide context for your posts. This is especially helpful if you’re posting about a related event or if you want to share additional information about a post.
