The Verge: Facebook launches stories to complete its all-out assault on Snapchat

Call it what you want, I call it blatantly stealing. I guess this is just business as usual though.

Casey Newton:

Facebook is rolling out ephemeral stories and messaging in its mobile apps today, bringing the popular format for sharing photos and videos to more than 1.65 billion people a day. The move is part of an all-out effort to blunt the momentum of Snapchat, which invented the stories format in 2013, and to ensure Facebook’s continued dominance in an era where photo and video become a primary mode of communication. Its relative success or failure will go a long way in determining who owns the near future of social networking.
