How to post a Facebook Story on desktop or mobile – Business Insider

Like many other social media platforms, Facebook allows you to create temporary posts called Stories. A Facebook Story can be created from a photo, text on a colored background, a poll, and more. Stories appear in your friends’ feeds as well as in the Stories row at the top of the screen — but you can also control who sees your stories. After 24 hours, your story disappears.
1. On the Facebook app on your phone or on the Facebook page in a web browser, select “Create a Story” in the Story row at the top of the page.
2. Choose the type of story you want to add. On the web, you can choose “Create a Photo Story” or “Create a Text Story,” but on your phone, you’ll have additional options:
3. You can change who your story is shared with. Select the gear icon. On the web, you’ll find it at the top left, next to the Your Story heading. On your phone, it’s in the lower left and labeled “Privacy.” Choose who you want to share your story with, such as “Public,” “Friends,” or “Custom.” If you choose Custom, you can share the story with specific people only. Click “Save.”
4. After you choose the kind of story you want to create and then customize it with text, images, effects and emojis, select “Share to Story.”
In addition to the usual kinds of stories, you can add items from your news feed to a story as well. To do that, tap “Share” under a post in your news feed and then choose “Share to Your Story.” Depending upon their privacy level, not all news items can be shared.
