We will see on the homepage, just like with Instagram which friends have updated their day recently and we will have controls to configure who can see what we publish and who does not. All posts will disappear within 24 hours, which is basically the same way Snapchat's Stories platform works.
This news looks to just be compounding an already-dire situation for Snapchat, which has seen its stock prices drop around 24 percent over the last two days.
Facebook Messenger Day is preferred to Snapchat Stories by some users due to the fact that older generations don't use the Snap product, but they do use Facebook and this will allow them a portal that that they can use to see what their kid or grandkid is up to. Now, Facebook Messenger wants you to share even more about your day with your friends with a new feature on its app.
The new Facebook Messenger Day feature is rolling out to the Messenger app on iOS and Android. Like Snapchat Stories and Instagram Stories, photos and videos shared to a Day feed disappear after 24 hours.
Snap a quick selfie or take a photo or video of what's around you.
From your camera, capture a photograph or video and select the smiley face icon in the top right corner to add art and effects to the footage captured.
Tap of the "Aa" icon to add text on the screen.
This addition to Instagram was one of the last unique features that Snapchat has held over Facebook's image-sharing network, and with this now complete, the final note (which is likely coming) is the augmented reality Snapchat filters that keeps users on that platform. The photo or video that you add to your day will be viewable for 24 hours.
After taking a photo or video in a chat, users can also add it to their Day.
If a user wishes to remove a certain post from My Day, they can do so by tapping on the image, then the three dots at the bottom right hand corner, and select "Delete".
Facebook copied the Snapchat Stories section in Instagram, and then did the same in Facebook messenger in a function that was only available among a small group of users.
