Now users can save their cherished Stories for all time thanks to the wide success of their video and photo linking medium.
Re-use and recycle
Facebook has rolled out an archive option for Facebook Stories, just like Instagram’s. To have a squiz launch of last year, user will notice a new indicator appearing above the top of Facebook Stories.
Initially announced back in May, the new addition could provide a very useful purpose for brands and marketers utilising the medium, creating a sort of library of advertisement.
Story posts will be stored in an archive not visible to other users and can be switched off while keeping to a 24-hour expiration window, but now users at least have the option.
Bang for the buck
Marketers may appreciate the permanence of a Stories archive when investing into adverts that won’t simply disappear.
Best performing Stories can be re-used at will or even revisited for inspiration, which may lend a leg up to analytics of successful campaigns.
What remains to be added is a highlights section within profiles for favoured Stories, which could be next. With the success of the feature as a story telling medium, the innovations are far from over.
