Now you can post your Facebook story directly from the Instagram App and some users of the popular photo sharing app.

The Stories cross-posting feature is now being tested with a small percentage of Instagram users, a company spokesperson told Business Insider on Wednesday. It looks like Facebook wants to ride on to the stellar growth that Instagram Stories has seen. It is evident that less numbers of people are using Facebook now a days. The Facebook app will show these Instagram-uploaded stories in its own story section with a "Instagram" label beneath the user's name.

In a statement made by an Instagram spokesperson, "We are always testing ways to improve the experience on Instagram and make it easier to share any moment with the people who matter to you".

YouTube, which saw both its user base and the portion getting news there grow in 2017, is now the second most common social media site for news.

Because of that, the animal could have been "a victim of the exotic pet trade" and "born and bred for the goal of resale". There were no apparent injuries to the animal, and the tiger did have claws and a full set of adult teeth.

Stories has now been integrated across all of Facebook's products including WhatsApp, Messenger and its core app. It is still not clear if or when Instagram plans to launch the feature officially.

Ever since Facebook acquired Instagram in 2012, the two apps have mostly been kept separate, according to TechCrunch.

Instagram Stories might soon make its way to Facebook.

It is now testing this service and many users have seen a new option to share photos and videos which are created with Instagram. The company has yet to reveal any usage stats for Facebook Stories, and a spokesperson again declined to do so when asked by Business Insider on Wednesday.
