Easiest Way To Post On Facebook Stories

The Simplest Way to Make Facebook Stories: Do you have friends on your Facebook list who have their profile picture always circled in blue line?

Are you wondering what these blue circles mean? Worry no more because I will be telling you everything you need to know about the blue circle you always see on some of your friends profile picture.

What are the blue circles seen on some friends profile picture on Facebook?

These circles are indications that your friends have a story posted on their account. In the recent Facebook update, the giant social media platform introduced the story feature that allows users to share some amazing moments on their story without it appearing on their timeline. What if I call the story feature Facebook back gate? Lol…

Calling the story feature Facebook back gate is not a bad idea because the story feature allows you to post those contents you feel should not appear on your timeline for reasons best known to you.

How Long Do The Blue circles stay before they disappear on someone’s profile?

If you are observant enough, you will notice that after some of your friends profile pictures get circled with a blue line, it goes off after some time.

When you notice this, it means that the story has expired and therefore disappeared.

The Facebook story lasts for one full day (24hours). After updating your story on Facebook, your profile picture gets circled with a blue line which indicates you have an active story.

Who can See My Facebook Story?

This all depends on your privacy settings. If you set it for just yourself, that means only you can view your story until it disappears. If you set it for just your friends, that means when you have an active story, only those whom you are friends with will be able to see your story until it disappears.

But in a situation you set your privacy policy as public, then anyone (even those you are not friends with) can see your stories until it disappears.
