Facebook is testing a new feature to let users share events that they are interesting in attending to, on their “Stories” so that they can coordinate with friends and enjoy events together.

According to a TechCrunch report on Monday, the test will involve a new option to “Share to Your Story” that appears when you visit an event’s page on Facebook.

“If shared, friends will see a tappable sticker within your Story that includes the event details and lets friends respond that they’re also ‘interested’ right from the Story itself,” the report added.

Friends also can tap on the sticker in the Story to visit the event page.

“There’s also a link to the event page built in and a way to start a group chat on Messenger with friends who responded,” said The Verge.

The test is currently rolling out to users in the US, Mexico and Brazil.

Facebook on Sunday faced major outage in the UK, the US and parts of Europe and Asia as users were not able to access News Feed and Notifications.

The outage monitor website Down Detector reported more than 4,000 reports from users, saying they faced issues with News Feed and Notifications features on the social networking giant.

The server status page on Facebook said: “We are currently experiencing degraded performance across the entire platform, resulting in increased request response time. Our team is aware of the issue and is working on a solution”.

The users flooded Twitter, saying they can’t see the popular News Feed.

“When Facebook goes down, I always go to Twitter to check if it’s not just me,” tweeted one user.
