Snapchat will from today let you share Stories on Facebook, Twitter & elsewhere

How to share Snapchat Stories with people who don't use the app

The new update will allow users to share people's Snapchat stories outside of the actual app, meaning that stories can be shared via email etc.

That's a departure from past approaches where Snap worked to distance the key product from rival offerings.

The company, which reported lower-than-expected 178 million daily active users in the third quarter ended September 30, has been trying to attract new users and rolling out features, aiming to increase the time users spend on the app.

Apparently, Snapchat users are annoyed that Stories from friends who follow them back are now disjointed through the inbox with messages threads in between. Snapchat will enable people to share and view its content outside of its app, Snapchat's parent company Snap announced on Tuesday.

A WH spox flayed Lindsey Graham's ass-backward immigration position
Meadows explained it is Senator Graham's views on immigration that are not in line with many Americans and not Millers. Graham on January 21 said, "As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiating immigration , we are going nowhere".

What should be stressed about the new feature is that is that only certain Snapchat stories are shareable outside of the app. It might be a copy of another app's features but a lot of users will feel a sense of relief with this feature, as it adds a sense of security when sharing your personal photos videos on social media.

With the news, Snapchat is abandoning one of the features that made it both distinctive and frequently frustrating for brands: its insularity.

For now, three different types of stories - Official Stories, Our Stories, and Search Stories - are currently available to share outside the platform.

Select "Share Story" and then choose how you'd like to share it outside of Snapchat - by text, e-mail, or posting to other platforms. Snapchat is looking to expand their presence and allow users to view content outside of the iOS and Android.

Gas leak shuts London's Charring Cross station
Transport for London tweeted that "A4 Strand/Northumberland St is closed" between Trafalgar Square and Bedford Street. The spokesman continued: "It is ongoing and engineers are down at the scene trying to isolate the leak".

Snapchat will still be a platform for disappearing content even with that content hosted online.

To view these Stories on the web, Snap is launching a desktop web viewer accessible over at Snapchat.com.

Let's just hope the latest update can change the perspective of users per the redesigned app-Snapchat can't afford to slip further behind Instagram and Facebook.

Facebook will tell you what news you can trust
Facebook remains one of, if not the most cost-effective forms of advertising available to marketers today. In terms of partisanship and user biases, Himelboim said the rating system may not be very effective.
