Facebook launched “Facebook Stories” app in celebration of reaching the 500 million user mark. These user-submitted Facebook Stories details how Facebook has brought people together. Of the stories that’ve been published, Facebook is providing location context via Bing Map. To users reading the stories a map provides visual representation to further immerse you into the story bringing you closer to the town being discussed.
Here, blue dots on the map show the location of these stories which can also be identified by theme (like “love,” “family,” “reunions,” etc.).
They’re hitting the road on a US tour to meet people, towns and organizations behind these stories in our first ever Facebook Stories road trip. It’s not too late to submit your story for inclusion, either. Facebook is still asking for submissions.
