Social media giant Facebook is testing a new feature that would allow Facebook Stories to be cross-posted to Instagram Stories, TechCrunch reported on Tuesday. This is the latest news.

Currently, Insta Stories can be shared to Facebook, but the reverse is not possible. The feature comes as Facebook continues to integrate Instagram with the rest of its services.

According to a Facebook spokesperson the company is now formally testing the cross-posting feature to make it easier to share moments with the people who matter to the user, as people might have different audiences and followers on Facebook versus Instagram. Facebook will continue to explore options for simplifying and improving how Stories work across its apps.

The new option would allow Stories to be shared interchangeably from one platform to another.

The screenshot of the Facebook-to-Insta cross-posting feature was posted by Jane Manchun Wong, who regularly discovers new social networking features ahead of their release.

The sale to both Apple and Sharp was reportedly delayed in the wake of new coronavirus pandemic.

“JDI decided to sell LCD production equipment to Apple first and real estate to Sharp later,” the report mentioned.

By offloading Hakusan, JDI would concentrate smartphone LCD panel production at the Mobara plant in Chiba Prefecture.
