facebook stories is finally rolling out more people and it’s about damn time

After months of testing and bringing their Snapchat Stories ripoff to their other services, Facebook is finally ready to roll out their new Stories feature to more people using their app.

facebook's snapchat-like stories are now available worldwide

Facebook's quest to clone Snapchat features wherever possible just took its next logical step. Just a couple of months after it started testing Stories in the main Facebook app, the social network has rolled out the feature to many (though currently not all) users worldwide. As with similar efforts in Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp, you can stitch together photos and videos to share stories that vanish after 24 hours. It won't be at all shocking if you've used any of those apps, but its presence in the core Facebook app is particularly significant.

snapchat, instagram stories... messenger day? how facebook is getting in on the

What is Messenger Day and why should I care about it?The original premise of Snapchat was to be able to send and receive photos and videos that disappear after a certain amount of time (around 10 seconds), and if the person you sent them to screenshotted 'em, you'd be alerted and thus able call them out on it. After a few months, Snapchat expanded and introduced its story feature, meaning that users could upload their Snapchat shenanigans to their public story for 24 hours before having them vanish.Instagram soon followed suit and introduced Instagram Stories, giving users a multicolored circle around their icon to let others know that they've posted a new photo or video to their story. Then, Instagram took it one step further and introduced Live Stories, allowing users to livestream their

Now, designer Vianney le Masne has imagined what the combination of a Dark Mode, OLED display, and bezel-less design could mean for app developers and designers…le Masne explains that a Dark Mode can’t just be about inverting white and black pixels, especially with the experience that a bezel-less OLED display has the potential to create.  The designer notes of how a Dark Mode will smooth the contrast between the edge of the display and the bezel, creating a seemingly borderless design:Going dark will massively smoothen contrast between the edge of the screen and the bezel. In fact it will be indistinguishable as the OLED empowered pixels will not emit any light, which regular screens do.Additionally, when creating Dark Mode designs, le Masne says that developers should start work from a d

instagram adds location-based geostickers to instagram stories

Instagram Stories now features location-based geostickers.Instagram is introducing a fun new feature to its Instagram Stories platform; users can now add location-based "geostickers" to their Stories.The stickers are only available in New York City in the U.S. and Jakarta in Indonesia, but Instagram calls the feature "an early version of geostickers," so it's clear they'll be adding more location-based stickers as time goes on.The location-based stickers work exactly how you'd expect: If you're in one of the locations where they're supported, you'll see geostickers for that location at the top of the stickers interface.

facebook stories is rolling out now on android & ios

Chris Chavez Mar 15th, 2017When Facebook brought their Snapchat Stories clone over to Messenger, it felt mostly out of place for dedicated messaging app. Continuing with their long standing obsession with Snapchat, the social network is finally ready to bring their Snapchat Stories ripoff to Facebook proper, rolling out the feature to everyone worldwide starting today.It’s been in testing for a few months now, so there’s a chance you may have already seen it. For everyone else, it works very much the same way as Snapchat Stories. Photos and video you post to your “Story” (yup, same name), will be live for 24 hours before they disappear forever and there are a handful of filters, geofilters, and 3D masks to spice things up. Oddly enough, Stories can’t be viewed on Facebook’s web interface,

2-in-1 detachables could improve pc market, says idc

While tables were still a minority at MWC 2017 last week, convertible and detachable PCs definitely made a big splash nonetheless. It isn’t by accident either. According to market analysis experts IDC, the popularity of detachable tablets and convertible notebooks is still strong, despite a decline in shipments last quarter. In fact, it predicts that this category could actually slow down the still ongoing decline of the overall PC market, at least by 2021.The bad news: global shipments of PCs of all form factors will continue to decline in the next four years. The good news: it won’t be as steep, thanks to the rise of detachables and convertibles, a relatively younger glass of mobile PCs that not only offer touch screens but, more often than not, ultraslim and lightweight form factors.IDC

medium's series feature looks a lot like snapchat stories

However, Series sets itself apart with posts that don't disappear after 24 hours and actually evolve over time. Medium wants Series to tell "ongoing stories," which they hope posters will add to as the narrative develops. As Wired points out, this hearkens back to an era when serial novels from the likes of Charles Dickens were en vogue, but brings the format to modern technology.Posts consist of "cards" that can feature text, an image or a GIF. Like Snapchat and Instagram stories, readers can tap on the right and left edges of the screen to navigate between cards. Users who want to follow along with an ongoing Series can turn on push notifications so they'll know when their favorite posts are updated. The app-only feature has early adopters in Bernie Sanders and Melinda Gates, who have al

nintendo switch review: the console you've been waiting for

The most important thing to know about Nintendo Switch is, drum roll please, that there's surprisingly little to know at this point. It is on one level simply what it claims to be: a respectably powerful $299 TV games console you can buy on March 3 that also transforms into a handheld gaming powerhouse.Not literally. There are no bending limbs or hidden robot heads lurking beneath its vivid capacitive multitouch ... screen or beveled matte-finish plastic housing. You simply pull the rectangular slate—bookended by a pair of motion control sticks capable of advanced haptic feedback Nintendo calls Joy-Cons—from its U-shaped dock, and presto, it's a handheld.As a handheld, the Switch feels respectably rigid and durable, an unostentatious but beautiful carbon-black slate that’s like a blue coll

public access' time is done, but a better engadget community awaits

It's been just shy of two years since we unveiled Public Access, our grand experiment in community contribution. In that time, we've seen some excellent stories published on the platform by you, and we are grateful for those efforts. Today, however, we are moving the Engadget community in a new direction and will be shutting Public Access down this Thursday, March 9th. For those of you in the community, you can rest assured your contributions aren't going anywhere -- the links to your stories will remain live and shareable, even though your profile pages will disappear. That said, we will be removing all site navigation to Public Access stories, so you need to copy the links to your stuff if you want to be able to read and share them moving forward. And, if you have any questions, just ema

Actress Viola Davis completed her award season haul with a well-deserved best supporting actress Oscar for her forceful portrayal of Rose Maxson in the movie revival of August Wilson's play "Fences".Davis, 51, has been winning hearts with her speeches at precursor awards like Critics' Choice, Golden Globes, SAG Awards and BAFTA and at the Oscars, she once again delivered a poignant speech highlighting the importance of telling stories of people living on the margins."People ask me all the time, what kind of stories do you want to tell Viola. And I say exhume those stories, the stories of people who dreamed big and never saw those dreams... to people who fell in love and lost. I became an artist and thank God I did because we are the only profession that celebrate what it means to live a li
