Well, it has just happened.

When Instagram launched its Stories feature, many called the feature a copycat/rip-off of Snapchat, but the feature proved to be so popular that we're sure that most people probably don't care by now.

In a bid to boost the popularity of the Stories feature on Facebook, the company had rolled out Stories for desktop users earlier this year in August, and now they seem to be taking on a new approach to growing its popularity.

"You now have the option to share your Instagram Stories to your Facebook Stories", a Facebook spokesperson confirmed to PCMag. To rope in more numbers for their Stories, Instagram will now offer its members to post Stories directly to Facebook. After all, no one uses Facebook Story. Seeing its success, Facebook then tried to replicate it across its apps such as Facebook and WhatsApp.

The picture-sharing platform this week added a new Polls sticker to Stories, allowing users to submit a question and invite their followers to vote for one of two options, and see real-time results. Facebook's own Stories feature has been slower to take off. In near future, you might be able to share a single upload on all apps at the same time.

Facebook first began testing this feature out in Portugal last month. Your friends will answer you and see the results and you can see the results by just opening the viewers' list on your Story, and it will show your total vote count, who voted, and what the chose.
